Dual Fibre Channel Adapter
(Not recommended for new designs)

PDF print version of this specification : A4 or Letter

The Dual Fibre Channel (FC) Adapter offers dual 1/2/4 Gbit/s FC communication links on multimode or singlemode fibre media (frontpanel I/O PMC adapter), or dual 1 Gbit/s FC links over copper (backplane I/O Conduction-Cooled PMC adapter). This adapter provides optimal flexibility by supporting all Fibre Channel topologies, including Arbitrated Loop, with full duplex communications on both channels. It is available in the following industry standard compliant formfactors :

  • PMC (IEEE Std 1386.1-2001)
  • Conduction-Cooled PMC (CCPMC) (ANSI/VITA 20-2001)

Architecture

The Dual Fibre Channel Adapter uses a highly integrated ASIC with embedded RISC processors to handle all protocol processing and data transfers. This reduces overhead on the host processor, thus providing higher network data throughput. Data transfers from the adapter are controlled independently using single channel Bus Mastering or Scatter Gather Mode.

On the frontpanel I/O PMC adapter dual 4 Gbit/s SFF optical transceivers are used, providing reliable, high speed and long distance connectivity. Both channels independently support autonegotiation down to 1 or 2 Gbit/s, allowing for the integration of legacy and next generation devices.

The backplane I/O Conduction-Cooled PMC adapter provides dual Fibre Channel links over copper media at a fixed link speed of 1 Gbit/s per channel.

The adapters Integrated Link Controller is Arbitrated Loop (FC-AL-2 R7.0) compliant and performs all Link operations. The Internal Controller monitors the Link State and strictly adheres to the Loop Port State Machine, ensuring maximum system interoperability.

Features

  • Two independent channels

  • 4 Gbit/s link speed on each channel using fibre media

  • Auto-speed 1, 2 or 4 Gbit/s

  • Data throughput (TCP)

  • 4 Gbit/s link : 600 Mbit/s in each direction per channel, 2 400 Mbit/s combined total

  • 2 Gbit/s link : 540 Mbit/s in each direction per channel, 2 160 Mbit/s combined total

  • 1 Gbit/s link : 470 Mbit/s in each direction per channel, 1 880 Mbit/s combined total

  • Supports all fibre channel topologies with full-duplex communication

  • Concurrent SCSI and IP protocol

  • Auto-detect switch or loop connections

  • 64-bit 133 MHz PCI-X, fully backwards compatible with 32-bit and 33/66/100 MHz bus

  • Data transfer via Bus Mastering to/from PCI-bus

  • ASIC design reduces costs and increases reliability

  • RoHS compliant
