Adlink Adds 4-Gig FC

IRVINE, Calif. -- ADLINK Technology announces the addition of the aTCA-6892 processor blade to its full line of AdvancedTCA® building blocks. The aTCA-6892 features dual 4 Gbps Fiber Channel (FC) links powered by the Qlogic EP2432 PCI-E fiber channel controller, offers remote setup, and can be configured with the FC links at the front panel via SFP optical transceivers, or to the backplane with Zone 2 connectors, supporting PICMG 3.1 option 4/7 connectivity. When combined with FC switch and storage blades, the aTCA-6892 can directly access integrated, high-performance Storage Area Networks (SAN) in the same chassis without the need for additional fiber optic cabling.

By combining the cutting-edge dual 64-bit Low Voltage Intel® Xeon® processors with up to 16GB dual channel PC3200 DDR2 REG/ECC memory, the aTCA-6892 provides an enormous amount of computing power for mission critical applications. In addition to the Fiber Channel links, the PICMG 3.1 compliant dual 1000BASE-BX GbE fabric interface ports offer gigabit-speed data transport options inside the shelf. The front of the processor blade offers a variety of I/O options including analog UXGA graphics, USB v2.0 ports, and a serial console. This blade also offers a PCI/PCI-X 64-bit/133MHz PMC site for further function expansion as well as reserved resources for a SATA RAID 0/1 enabled RTM interface.
