Lake Forest, CA (PRWEB) September 8, 2006
DSS Networks announces another innovative board level product -- offering dual port Gigabit Ethernet PMC with SC-type transceivers supporting multiple fiber transceiver wavelength options and ruggedized features -- an exciting new addition to their family of Gigabit Ethernet products targeted for Military, Aerospace and Telecom applications.
GigMAC PMC Dual Port - Model 5262-SC. The model 5262-SC offers two configurable ports of 1000 Base X (SX, LX) Gigabit Ethernet though the use of multimode or singlemode SC transceivers. It is packaged in a 64-bit PCI Mezzanine (PMC) form factor suitable for embedded enclosures and operates in 133/100/66 PCI-X or 64-bit, 66 MHZ PCI modes. It uses state-of-the-art Gigabit Ethernet controller technology featuring an ultra low power Intel 82546 dual port integrated MAC/PHY/Serdes PCI-X controller with intelligent burst mode bus-master DMA providing a very high-level of performance and integration using the least amount of power and space. Power consumption is very low utilizing approximately 3.5W total board power running both ports simultaneously in gigabit mode. Several models are available for support of 1000 Base SX (850nm MM) and 1000 base LX (1310nm SM) fiber. CWDM transceivers are also available as an optional configuration. Both leaded and fully RoHS compliant versions are available.
Extreme performance, features and value. This product offers excellent performance and value with simultaneous dual-port Gigabit Ethernet over fiber and copper capabilities on a single PMC mezzanine card and includes optional support for link failover and aggregation features. High-performance Linux and vxWorks drivers are available optimized for high frame rates, short or long frames and high throughput applications. Tests and benchmark data is available and demonstrates throughput in excess of 244 megabytes and over 850,000 frames per second per port running in full-duplex mode. Total board throughput over PCI-X is 490 Mbytes/sec per card. Two boards (4-ports) in a system have been benchmarked at 980MB/sec using high-end Intel based server chipset based processor boards.
The model 5262-SC dual-port gigabit controller is targeted for OEMs and Systems Integrators for use in Military and Telecom products including Multifunction Military LRU’s, Redundant Switches, Multiplexers, Routers and Media Gateways. It is well suited for support of embedded Broadband applications including Data Capture and Acquisition, Data Distribution, Monitoring, VoIP, Digital Video, IP security, Test Equipment and Network Storage. The Model 5262-SC comes in several levels of ruggedization for extended temperature and MIL-SPEC conformal coating.
The Model 5262-SC 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.
