ICP vortex fields PCI-FC controller
ICP vortex recently introduced PCI-Fibre Channel controllers that support RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 and, unlike most other controllers, RAID 4. The one-channel GDT6519D and two-port GDT6529RD are based on Intel`s i960 RISC processor and ICP`s RAIDYNE real-time operating system. The Fibre Channel ports are implemented in a Fibre Channel Arbitrated Loop (FC-AL) topology. The controllers also include a Wide/Ultra SCSI channel. The one-channel implementations is priced at $3,200; the two-channel version at $4,600.
