ICP ships 64-bit PCI-FC controllers

Last month, ICP vortex began shipments of 64-bit PCI-Fibre Channel RAID controllers with optional clustering support. The GDT7519RN (one Fibre Channel port), GDT7619 (one FC port and clustering support), GDT7529RN (two FC ports) and GDT7629RN (two FC ports and clustering) support RAID levels 0, 1, 4, 5, and 10.

The PCI interface operates at 33MHz, with burst rates of 264MBps. The controllers include a 64-bit Intel i960RNO processor.

Other features include a hardware XOR engine for RAID 4/5; 32-bit PCI compatibility; 16MB to 64MB of ECC SDRAM; multi-level delayed write and read-ahead cache with a battery backup module; copper or fiber-optic adapters; and support for SCSI devices via a Wide/Ultra SCSI channel with 50-pin and 68-pin connectors. www.icp-vortex.com.
