10/100 Ethernet Card Suits High-Density CompactPCI Applications

The CP3-Quad100TX is a full hot-swap capable, 64-bit, 66-MHz 10/100 Ethernet card. It suits 3U CompactPCI computing applications with zero tolerance for system downtime. This board provides four independent, high-performance 10BaseT/100BaseTX Ethernet interfaces.

The board's PCI interface supports 66-MHz host systems with no degradation of backplane performance. The single-slot installation and compact design of the CP3-Quad100TX is well suited for small, rack-mounted systems. This board supports combined data rates of up to 800 Mbits/s full duplex and 400 Mbits/s half duplex. Back-to-back transmission with minimal interface latency is facilitated with 3 kbytes of transmit and 3 kbytes of receive FIFO for each port. A VxWorks 5.4 driver for PowerPC and Intel platform is available.

The CP3-Quad100TX costs $899.
