DSS Networks Debuts Dual Port Pluggable Fiber Gigabit Ethernet PCI-X Card

5/24/2004 - DSS Networks announces another innovative board level product -- offering two ports of 1000 Base X Fiber Gigabit Ethernet, a PCI-X bus interface and support for pluggable fiber optic interface options - an exciting new addition to their family of Gigabit Ethernet products targeted for embedded applications in Telecom, Enterprise, Military and Aerospace industries.

GigMAC PCI-X Dual Port - Model 6267 Fiber SFP.The Model 6267-SFP offers two ports of 1000 Base X Gigabit Ethernet over Fiber and is fully IEEE 802.3 compliant. It is packaged in a 64-bit low profile PCI-X card measuring 2.5 by 6.6 inches and is suitable for 1U and 2U embedded enclosures. Industry standard high throughput PCI-X bus mode is supported up to 133 MHZ and is also backwards compatible with standard 64 or 32 bit PCI. Support for both 1000 Base SX and LX is supported with onboard small-form factor pluggable "SFP" type connectors offering the most flexibility in fiber optic interface options. In addition, an option to support a 1000 Base T pluggable SFP module will be available in the near future.

The Model 6267 uses state-of-the-art Gigabit Ethernet controller technology featuring an ultra low power Intel 82546 dual port integrated MAC-PHY PCI-X controller with intelligent burst mode bus-master DMA and providing a very high-level of performance and integration. Power consumption is very low utilizing approximately 3.8W total board power running both ports in gigabit mode. Support for several types of SFP fiber optic modules is available including 850nm multimode and 1310nm singlemode with support for extended distances of up to 20km. High-performance Linux and vxWorks drivers are available optimized for high frame rate and high throughput applications. Tests and benchmark data is available and demonstrates throughput in excess of 242 megabytes and over 850,000 frames per second per port running in full-duplex mode with performance exceeding 484MB/sec over both ports simultaneously.

The Model 6267 2-port Gigabit PCI-X fiber SFP card is targeted for OEMs and Systems Integrators for use in data and telecommunications and is well suited for a variety of embedded Military, Aerospace, Telecom and Industrial applications. This product is available with an OEM Developers Kit containing Linux and VxWorks device drivers, library functions, frame generators, loopback tests, benchmark programs, statistics and management utilities and documentation.
