Dual 2 Gbps Fibre Channel PMC Adapter
(Not recommended for new designs)

PDF print version of this specification : A4 or Letter

The Dual 2 Gbps Fibre Channel (FC) PMC (PCI Mezzanine Card) Adapter offers dual 2 Gbps Fibre Channel communication links on multimode or singlemode fibre media. 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 air-cooled versions : ruggedised, industrial and commercial.

Architecture

The Dual 2 Gbps FC PMC Adapter uses an embedded RISC processor to handle all the protocol processing and data transfers. This reduces overhead on the host processor, thus providing higher network data throughputs. Data transfers from the adapter are controlled independently using single channel Bus Mastering or Scatter Gather Mode.

Integrated 2 Gbps Optical Transceivers : Dual integrated transceivers provide considerable reliability, speed and distance interconnect technology. Both channels independently support autonegotiation down to 1 Gbps, allowing the separation of legacy and next generation devices.

Arbitrated Loop Support : The Dual 2 Gbps FC PMC 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
  • 2 Gbps transfer rates on each channel on fibre media    
  • High-performance context management
  • Full simultaneous target and initiator operations
  • Data transfer via Bus Mastering to/from PCI-bus 
  • Onboard SRAM for data storage   
  • Extensive use of SMT devices to reduce RF noise
  • Integrated FPGA design reduces costs and increases reliability

Applications

  • Distributed real-time applications in harsh environments  
  • High-Performance Multimedia Applications
  • Mission-Critical Applications 
  • High-Speed Sensor Integration
  • Avionics
