Gbps channel Fibre Channel (FC) PMC card designed for high-bandwidth data communications and storage applications. The card supports both SCSI Fibre Channel Protocol (FCP) and Internet Protocol (IP), including both File System SCSI and Raw Initiator SCSI.

ImageThe FX400 Dual Channel (DC) from Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing (Leesburg, VA) is a dual 4.25 This multi-protocol approach enables application software to communicate simultaneously with SCSI- and IP-based devices, while removing the need for the system integrator to interact with the FC interface. The unit, available in both aircooled and conduction- cooled versions, simplifies the integration of high bandwidth FC data communications in PCI, VME, and Compact PCI-based embedded systems, while lessening slot count. Each of the unit's dual independent FC paths supports transfer rates up to 400 MBps in a single direction. In full duplex mode, transfer rates up to 800 MBps or a combined throughput rate of up to 1,600 MBps per PMC card can be supported. Each of the card's dual channels also supports 1.0625 Gbps, 2.125 Gbps, and 4.25 Gbps rates, and automatically detects and switches to the appropriate rate using Auto-Speed Negotiation.
