The LP9002DC Dual Channel PCI host bus adapter offers two independent 2Gb/s Fibre Channel HBA interfaces in a single PCI slot. It delivers exceptional performance through the use of two Emulex Centaur ASICs, two 266MIPS onboard processors, high speed buffer memory, and a high performance 64 bit 66MHz PCI bridge. The LP9002DC features automatic speed negotiation capability which allows complete compatibility with existing 1Gb/s Fibre Channel SANs, while allowing seamless upgrades to higher speed 2Gb/s SANs.
The LP9002DC also features sophisticated hardware that provides superior performance in SANs, delivering low latency and high throughput in fabric, arbitrated loop and clustered environments. Support for the fiber optic cabling is provided through embedded small form factor (LC) optical interfaces.
