XRM2-FCN - Dual Infiniband 4x2.5Gb/s



  • Dual Infiniband 4x2.5Gb/s
  • Dual 10Gb/s Ethernet CX4
  • Dual 10Gb/s Fibre Channel
  • Dual 4x OC-48 SONET

Board Features

  • 2x FCN Connector
  • Alpha Data XRM2 I/O Module


The XRM2-FCN is an XRM2 I/O Module which provides eight full-duplex high-speed serial communication channels.

The XRM2-FCN provides the cost-effective solution to applications requiring high-speed data communications such as Infiniband TA, 10G Ethernet, 4x Fibre Channel. It allows easy connection of these cards to devices with compatible connectors and signaling standards by means of a simple, point-to-point connection schemes implemented using off-the-shelf cable assemblies. Both copper and optical('CX4') versions of the FCN connector are supported, with full control and fault signaling for each of the optical power connections.

A separate low-jitter oscillator is provided to support high-bit rate applications where the internal clock is unsuitable.
