At GLOBALCOMM™ 2006 DSS Networks, The Gigabit Experts™, introduces two new innovative board level products based on AdvancedMC -- a quad port Gigabit Ethernet AdvancedMC supporting 1000-Base-T and a quad port Gigabit Ethernet AdvancedMC supporting 1000-Base-X Pluggable SFP modules. This new family of products can be used in systems based on ATCA and MircoTCA technology for Telecom, Military, Aerospace and Datacenter applications.

At GLOBALCOMM™ 2006 DSS Networks, The Gigabit Experts™, introduces the GigAMC-Express Quad Port Model 5664. The Model 5664 GigAMC-Express is a single-width, full height AdvancedMC board with four Gigabit Ethernet ports for use in a wide variety of next generation and wireless networking equipment. Designed for high performance and reliability, the Model 5664 GigAMC-Express is ideal for port expansion, aggregation or fiber links for AdvancedTCA (ATCA) platforms as well as programs considering the emerging architecture of MicroTCA.

Extreme performance, features and value. While all four ports are designed to operate independently, each can deliver full gigabit wire-speed performance simultaneously. The Model 5664 GigAMC-Express board is based on two Intel 82571EB dual-port Gigabit Ethernet integrated MAC/PHY/Serdes controllers that are optimized for maximum throughput and low CPU utilization. Packet processing tasks such as Intelligent burst-mode DMA, TCP segmentation, TCP/UDP/IP checksum calculation and VLAN tag-insertion and removal are supported in the Intel device hardware. The Model 5664 supports both an 8-lane "x8" or 4-lane "x4" AMC PCIe backplane interface using an onboard IDT 89HPES24N3 PCI Express switch. An onboard FPGA supports a microcontroller based IPMI controller for module management and hot-swap insertion and removal.

Currently available in two models:

  • The Model 5664-SFP supports 1000-Base-X (SX, LX) with 4-port ganged SFP modules. Connector options include 850nm MM, 1310nm SM or multiple wavelength CWDM SFP transceivers.
  • The Model 5664-RJ supports 10/100/1000 Base-T with a 4-port ganged RJ-45 integrated PulseJack.

The Model 5664 quad port Gigabit Ethernet AdvancedMC cards are targeted for OEMs and Systems Integrators for use in Telecom, Military and Datacenter products including Multifunction Military LRU's, Switches, Multiplexers, Edge Routers, Media Gateways, Data Center Servers and Internet Appliances. They are well suited for support of embedded Broadband applications including Data Capture and Acquisition, Monitoring, VoIP, Digital Video, IP security, Test Equipment and Network Storage.

The Model 5664 GigAMC-Express family is available now 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.

DSS Networks, Inc. is a privately funded company located in Lake Forest CA and designs and manufactures embedded high-performance next generation Broadband Networking products based on network, bus and backplane technologies including Gigabit Ethernet, 10-Gigabit Ethernet, PCI-Express, PCI-X, OC-48 and CWDM/DWDM.
