Data Device Corporation (DDC) said its FC-75211M2 fiber channel network access controller (NAC) now supports High-Speed 1760.
The FC-75211M2 is a two-channel Fiber Channel Network Access Controller PMC card for SAE AS5653, High-Speed 1760, a gigabit-speed communication option for MIL-STD-1760. Each of the card’s two independent channels may operate as an FC-AE-1553 Network Controller (NC) or Network Terminal.
With its 64-bit 66 MHz PCI Interface, the FC-75211M2 can support simultaneous “line rate” transmission and reception on both channels.
FC-75211M2 provides: • Two independent channels: FC-AE-1553 NC and/or NT • Large file transfers • Built-in Self-Test, including NC-to-NT Wraparound • Compatibility with multiple standards: MIL-STD-1760E Class I, SAE AS5653, AS5725, and AS5726 • Software driver for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows® XP, Windows® Embedded Standard, and Windows 7
FC-75211M2 cards meet the deterministic performance, high reliability and demanding environmental requirements of embedded real-time military applications, as well as the configuration flexibility required for lab use.
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
