The SX2 QuadBRI is an ISDN card with four S/T interfaces for basic rate interface (BRI) based on Cologne Chip HFC-4S. It is designed especially to be used with SwyxWare and manufactured exclusively for Swyx.


  • 4 x S/T interface (BRI)
  • each port can be configured separately to TE/NT mode with a Jumper field, the Internal BRI connector is not needed for this board.
  • short-circuit protection for the ISDN cabling by fuses (non-blowing, auto-recovery)
  • line-termination (100 Ohm) is independently selectable for each port by DIP switch
  • up to 4 cards can be installed in one PC
  • The interfaces can provide power to the S/T-bus. An additional power supply - built into the PC - is needed and will be connected to th PC power supply.  

PCI interface

  • PCI interface is suitable for 3.3V as well as 5V PCI 2.2 slots (5V to 3.3V regulator on board)

PCM Highway

  • clock synchronization between SX2-boards is possible using flat ribbon cables. This option will be supported by the driver in Q2/2006. The cable will be avaible in Q2/2006 as well.
  • 2/4/8 Mbit/s data transfer rate


  • Cologne Chip HFC-4S chip
  • high precision 49.152 MHz quartz oscillator
  • 512 x 8 bit serial EEPROM for the programming of PCI configuration information

General purpose I/O

  • 4 dual LEDs at the slot bracket that can be controlled by software with possible states green, red, off for each LED
  • 3-DIP switch can be checked by software for e.g. clear identification of the card
