Carlsbad, Calif. - SBS Technologies' CP3-Quad100TX is a hot-swap-capable, 64-bit, 66-MHz Ethernet card for 3U CompactPCI computing applications in telecommunications, medical imaging and industrial automation.
The card provides four independent 10 Base T/100 Base TX Ethernet interfaces. Its 64-bit/66-MHz PCI interface is said to support 66-MHz host systems with no degradation of backplane performance. The single-slot installation suits small, rack-mounted systems.
The Ethernet card supports combined data rates of up to 800 Mbits/second full-duplex and 400 Mbits/s half-duplex. Back-to-back transmission with minimal interface latency is enabled with 3 kbytes of transmit and 3 kbytes of receive FIFO for each port. A built-in physical-layer interface unit supports autonegotiating protocol selection. Four front-panel RJ45 connectors allow direct network connectivity. Front panel LEDs monitor the link and activity of each port.
A VxWorks 5.4 driver for PowerPC and Intel platforms is available, as are Windows NT, Linux and FreeBSD drivers. The CP3-Quad100TX is available now at $899.
