SK-FDDI and SK-CDDI Adapters

PDF print version of this specification

SysKonnect FDDI PCI Adapter Product Manual

The Fibre Distributed Data Interface (FDDI) standard provides a 100 Mbit/s dualredundant local area network link with 4B/5B signalling over multimode fibre while the Copper Distributed Data Interface (CDDI) standard provides the same using MLT-3 signalling over Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) copper cabling.

The range of FDDI PCI Adapters was developed and manufactured by SysKonnect of Germany and consists of the SK-54xx PCI 32-bit adapters and SK-5844 PCI-X 64-bit adapter.

The FDDI and CDDI Adapters are available in the following range of industry standard compliant formfactors :

  • PCI 32-bit (PCI Local Bus Specification Rev. 2.3)
  • PCI 64-bit (PC-X 1.0)

A range of FDDI and CDDI Adapters is also available in the PMC and PCI-104 formfactors.

Architecture

The AMD Supernet 3 chipset is used to provide advanced features such as Synchronous Bandwidth Allocation (SBA) and End Station Support (ESS). The adapter has an advanced ASIC onboard that performs buffer management and PCI interfacing, thereby achieving high throughput.

Features

  • Dual-(DAS) or Single-(SAS) Attachment Station options available
  • Optical Bypass Switch Control
  • Fully software configurable

Applications

  • SAFENET applications    
  • Distributed real-time applications
  • Vetronics applications 
  • Mission-critical applications
  • SCADA applications
  • Instrumentaion & Control (I&C) applications
  • Server Farms

SC (See Note)

Note : At 10,5 mm, the SC connectors are taller than the PMC formfactor allows. This causes a slight mis-alignment of about 0,5 degrees, or 0,1 mm at the PMC connectors. Users are advised to establish whether this is a problem in their application, in which case we would recommend using FDDI adapters with ST connectors.
