Advanced mezzanine card has 40/50/100GbE host bus adapter
The latest advanced mezzanine card (AMC) from VadaTech, is the AMC243. The host bus adapter (HBA) is a dual port 40/50/100Gb Ethernet (GbE) unified wire adapter, with a PCI Express 3.0 x16 host bus interface. It is optimised for storage, cloud computing, high performance computing, (HPC), virtualisation and other data centre networking applications.
The AMC243 has 4Gbyte of DDR-4 memory with error code correction (ECC). The module offers support for integrated offload of IPsec, TLS/SSL, DTLS and SMB 3.X crypto. It also provides sub micro-second end-to-end latency, while offloading the host CPU from a variety of typical storage, networking, and cloud related protocols, saving host CPU acquisition costs, power and operational costs, and also claimed to dramatically increase system performance.
Support for both fibre channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and iSCSI, the TCP-IP based protocol that allows for fast data access over the network, benefit from high reliability features that include memory ECC, data path CRC and T10-DIX offload, in addition to the checksums and clock redundancy check (CRC) available at different protocols layers. High performance iSCSI and FCoE provide a drop-in replacement upgrade from legacy storage area networks (SANs) to converged networks.
VadaTech provides embedded computing solutions from board-level products, chassis-level platforms, to configurable application-ready systems. The company focuses on AdvancedTCA, MicroTCA, VPX and PCIe solutions, and offers a combination of electrical, mechanical, software, and system-level expertise to enable it to provide customised commercial or rugged computing to meet the most complex customer requirements.
VadaTech also offers specialised products for VME, CompactPCI, and other architectures.
