Conduant Corporation , the leading developer of direct-to-disk, long duration recording and playback systems, announced today the StreamStor™ SFPDP (Serial Front Panel Data Port) mezzanine board for long distance, high speed, data capture from Serial FPDP or other optical fiber data protocols. When combined with Conduant’s StreamStor Amazon SATA disk controller, real time data input performance exceeds 500 megabytes per second, the highest speed available today for defense, scientific research and instrumentation applications.

For use with compatible StreamStor controllers, the StreamStor SFPDP Mezzanine Board features four independent optical fiber interface ports for simultaneous data input and output available on each port. With data rate and wavelength options, the board can support cable lengths up to 25 kilometers.

The new SFPDP mezzanine board can be used in a variety of real time data streaming applications including:

  • Digital Signal Processing (DSP)
  • High speed data acquisition
  • Radar and sonar
  • Medical Imaging
  • Telemetry
  • Satellite download
  • High resolution video

Serial FPDP is rapidly becoming the interconnect of choice for streaming data capture systems because it is a protocol optimized for maximum data rates and minimum overhead. It efficiently accommodates many applications requiring great distances between the data input site and data processing stations,” said Ken Owens, CEO of Conduant. “By combining the StreamStor SFPDP Mezzanine board with StreamStor storage controllers, we are providing our customers with a highly reliable and sustainable high speed data recording and playback solution.”
