The LightPulse LP8000 fiber channel PCI host bus adapters deliver exceptional performance through the use of Emulex's Dragonfly ASIC, a 266 MIPs onboard processor and state of the art dual-ported buffer memory. The LP8000 features a 64-bit PCI interface and provides the richest set of features available. The LP8000 is designed to support mission-critical enterprise applications. The LP8000 provides a unique combination of features, including switched fabric support using F Port and FL Port connections, full-duplex data transfers, high data integrity features, support for all fiber channel topologies and support for service classes 2 and 3. The LP8000 also features sophisticated hardware that provides superior performance in storage area networks, delivering low latency and high throughput in switched, arbitrated loop and clustered environments. Support for both copper and fiber optic cabling is provided through standard GBIC or embedded interfaces.
