SBS Technologies today introduced two new 2-Gigabit Fibre Channel host bus adapters (HBAs).
According to the company, the two FC23 64-bit/66 MHz PCI Mezzanine Cards (PMCs) support 400 MB/s full- duplex and 200 MB/s half-duplex data transfer rates and automatically negotiate 1 or 2 Gigabit Fibre Channel bit rates. FC23-PMC-1C features one copper interface via a high-speed serial data connector (HSSDC) port. FC23-PMC-1F provides one fiber port that supports multimode LC duplex fiber- optic cable.
“Real-time and storage applications consistently require greater bandwidth,” says David Greig, commercial group president, SBS Technologies. “Our FC23 series PMC HBAs double the bandwidth of our earlier FC22 series, significantly advancing the ability to move data.” Greig continued, “We selected QLogic’s ISP2300 Fibre Channel chip for our 2-Gigabit Fibre Channel solutions and have been very pleased with the performance and support we received.”
The Model FC23-PMC-1C and FC23-PMC-1F are immediately available. FC23-PMC-1C is list priced at $1,285.00 (US); FC23-PMC-1F is $1,595.00 (US).
