  • Albuquerque, NM (February 14, 2007) ─ GE Fanuc Embedded Systems, a leading provider of embedded communication solutions, expands their already extensive line of AdvancedMCâ„¢ modules with the Telumâ„¢ FC2432 Fibre Channel (FC) Host Bus Adapter (HBA) AdvancedMC with dual fiber interface. The Telum FC2432 HBA in single-wide, full-size or mid-size AMC.O form factor, provides connectivity to a x4 PCI Express baseboard. The HBA offers two independent channels of 4 Gb/s Fibre Channel and is currently available in dual fiber (supports multimode and single-mode fiber optic) with two SFF ports supporting LC-style connectors. These AdvancedMC HBAs, together with supporting software tools, provide the high-sustained throughput and low latency required for demanding real-time and storage applications. SCSI-FCP protocol support is provided for Linuxâ„¢ operating systems. “The Telum FC2432 HBA is ideal for carrier grade network services for a wide range of real-time and storage applications such as networking, central office, and telecommunications”, said Lisa East, GE Fanuc Global Director of I/O Products. The Telum FC2432 HBA includes the Intelligent Platform Management System and is Hot Swap Compliant to limit system downtime. The FC2432 communicates with the carrier/shelf through a packet-based serial interface, which features up to four lanes of high-speed I/O (2.5 Gbit/sec each). The Telum FC2432 HBA is available now. In keeping with today’s environmental requirements, the Telum FC2432 is RoHS-compliant.
