64-Bit CompactPCI Board Works As StarFabric Bridge

The PCI-2010-CPCI64, a 64-bit CompactPCI form-factor board, employs the SG2010 PCI-to-StarFabric bridge. It also includes an add-on PMC site. The unit's two SG2010 bridge devices comply with PCI Rev. 2.2 standards. One provides a 64-bit, 66-MHz CompactPCI connection while the other has a 64-bit, 33-MHz PMC site connection. Two 2.5-Gbit/s full-duplex StarFabric serial links are available for each SG2010 via standard RJ45 connectors. Each SG2010 also contains eight low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) serial link status LEDs. The PCI-2010-CPCI64 can be used for the evaluation of SQ2010 operation as well as for the evaluation and development of application-specific code for the SG2010, for other StarFabric-compatible devices, or for use with the on-board 64-bit PMC site. The unit can also function as a node card in a PICMG 2.17 application. The PCI-2010-CPCI64 costs $970 each in 100-unit quantities. Delivery is within four weeks.
