The FC-75100 FibreACCESS™ series are dual-channel Fibre Channel Network Access Controller(NAC) PMC cards optimized for use in military/aerospace applications. The FibreACCESS NAC is suitable for a wide variety of applications for embedded avionics and vetronics systems. These include sensor interfacing, multi-processor and DSP arrays, radar systems, display systems, serial backplanes, and storage.
Based on DDC developed Fibre Channel technology, FibreACCESS is optimized to meet the deterministic performance, high reliability, and demanding environmental requirements of embedded, real time, military applications. The FibreACCESS FPGA-based architecture can be tailored to meet a wide range of specific system requirements and is not subject to rapidly changing commercial market forces that can result in shortened life cycles. DDC FibreACCESS NACs have been designed to meet the multi-decade life cycle demands of military/aerospace programs, continuing our demonstrated commitment as a long-term military COTS supplier of digital interface devices.
FibreACCESS cards support Class 2 acknowledged and Class 3 unacknowledged Fibre Channel service. The cards provide leading edge performance, with the capability of operating at sustained data rates of over 300 MBytes/s with 2 Gb/s signaling and memory-to-memory latency of under 20 µS. Built-in DMA engines and 64-bit/66 Mhz PCI initiator/target interface, operating together with the frame, sequence and outbound exchange management logic, autonomously move payload data to and from PCI space. Using host initiated descriptors, frames are assembled and disassembled autonomously to and from payload buffers in host memory.
FibreACCESS supports multiple upper layer protocols (ULPs). These include TCP/IP, UDP/IP, SCSI/FCP, ASM (Anonymous Subscriber Messaging), and Raw Mode.
