DSS NETWORKS ANNOUNCES NEW SINGLE PORT GIGABIT ETHERNET PCI FIBER CONTROLLER FOR REAL-TIME AND EMBEDDED SYSTEMS APPLICATIONS
Irvine, CA - Feb 17, 2003 -- DSS Networks announces support for a single port Gigabit Ethernet controller card with multiple fiber optic and copper
interface options in a low-profile PCI form factor -- expanding existing family of Gigabit Ethernet products targeted for Embedded Broadband Network Applications.
GigMAC PCI Fiber - Model 6167. This new board offers a single port of 1000 Base SX or LX Gigabit Ethernet over Fiber and is fully IEEE 802.3 compliant.
It is packaged in a 64-bit low profile PCI card measuring 2.5 by 6.6 inches and is suitable for embedded and rack-mount enclosures.
Several models are available for support of 1000 base SX (850nm) and 1000 base LX (1310nm) using onboard LC and SC connector options.
In addition, the Model 6161 supports a 1000 base T copper connection to a RJ-45 connector for operation over CAT5 cabling.
These models all represent highly integrated solutions utilizing a National Semiconductor DP83820 Gigabit MAC controller combined with a Broadcom BCM5421S transceiver,
supporting both fiber and copper interfaces. Power consumption is low utilizing less than 3W total board power in Gigabit mode.
This product offers excellent performance and value with gigabit ethernet over fiber and copper capabilities on a single low-profile PCI card.
High-performance Linux and vxWorks drivers are available optimized for both high frame rate/short frame and high throughput applications.
Tests and benchmarks show throughput in excess of 242MB/sec and over 850,000 frames per second per port.
Both these models 6167 and 6161 are targeted for OEMs and Systems Integrators for use in Data and Telecommunications products including Switches,
Edge Routers, Gateways, Servers and Internet Appliances. They are well suited for support of embedded Broadband applications including Internet Voice,
Digital Video, IP security, Test Equipment and Network Storage. These products are available now with an OEM Developers Kit including Linux and
VxWorks drivers, library software, utilities and documentation.
