[Avionics Today 05-20-2016] The Data Device Corporation (DDC) has introduced its new rugged Fibre Channel XMC Network Access Controller, which claims to improve throughput and latency performance. The network offers 1 Gb/s or 2 Gb/s operation via an x4 PCI Express (XMC) initiator/target host interface.
The new FC-755XX boards, available with either 150 ohm differential or 75 coax for MIL-STD-1760E copper, or fiber optic physical layers, are based on DDC’s Fibre Channel technology and designed to meet the multi-decade life cycle demands of aerospace and defense programs. Using DDC’s IP-integrated multi-chip modules, and advanced manufacturing capabilities, DDC can also tailor the board for a wide range of Fibre Channel interfacing requirements.
