The LightPulse LP9000 Fiber Channel PCI host adapter provides the flexibility and broad interoperability needed for complex highly scalable SANs. The LP9000 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 class 2 and 3. The LP9000 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 interfaces. The LP9000 delivers exceptional performance through the use of Emulex's Centaur ASIC, a 266 MIPs onboard processor and state of the art dual ported buffer memory. The LP9000 features a 64-bit, 66 MHz PCI interface and provides the richest set of features available.
