Controller Delivers Fibre Channel Connectivity

As the heart of the firm’s HHBA-5121A host adapter, the HPFC-5166 Tachyon TS Fibre Channel controller IC is optimized to deliver Fibre Channel connectivity to storage subsystems, storage routers, host adapters, and host computer motherboards. This single-chip PCI Fibre Channel controller is designed for 32- and 64-bit, 66-MHz PCI systems and is backward compatible with 32- and 64-bit, 33-MHz PCI systems. It supports Class 3 and Class 2 service and several topologies, including Fibre Channel Arbitrated Loop and N_Port fabric attachment. HHBA-5121A is a 32- and 64-bit, 66-MHz PCI Fibre Channel host adapter that can achieve a PCI bus bandwidth of up to 528 Mbytes/s.
