Quad Serial FPDP Recorder

Multi-Channel Serial FPDP board that support up to a 5.0 Gb/s serial data link which utilizes a highly specialized communications protocol optimized for maximum data throughput.

Overview

FibreXtreme SL100/SL240/SL500 are Multi-channel data recorder boards based on the technology pioneered in the original Simplex Link series. FibreXtreme SL100/SL240/SL500 multi-channel Serial FPDP (sFPDP) boards blast data up to a sustained 494 MB/s on each of the four channels available.

FibreXtreme Serial FPDP Multi-channel data recorder supports up to a 5.0 Gb/s serial data link which utilizes a highly specialized communications protocol optimized for maximum data throughput. Data transfers occur without the CPU overhead and non-deterministic latencies associated with many layers of complex communication protocols. The SL100/SL240/SL500 on-board Direct Memory Access (DMA) engine is optimized for maximum data throughput without processor intervention. DMA and register byte swapping provide additional system flexibility.
