Fibre Channel PMC Host Bus Adapters Double Bandwidth

Addressing expanding bandwidth requirements, the FC23 64-bit/66-MHz, PMC Fibre Channel host bus adapters (HBAs) support 400 MB/s, full duplex and 200 MB/s half-duplex data rates and automatically negotiate 1- or 2-Gb Fibre Channel bit rates. The FC23-PMC-1C provides one copper interface via a serial data connector port, while the FC23-PMC-1F provides one fiber port that supports multimode LC duplex fiber-optic cable. Both PMCs feature a streamlined protocol engine, RemoteDMA protocols, and SCSI target protocols. For standard file system and network support, device drivers for Solaris, Linux, and Windows NT/2000 are provided. Prices for the FC23-PMC-1C and FC23-PMC-1F are $1,285 and $1,595, respectively.
