2011-04-22 Adnaco Technology introduced second generation PCI Express Gen 2 over fiber optic systems

BURNABY, BC, April 22, 2011 – Adnaco Technology Inc., a global leader in PCI Express over fiber optic technology, has launched second generation PCI Express Gen 2 systems based on its PCI Express over fiber optic technology. The PCI Express Gen 2 systems offer twice the bandwidth of Gen 1 at lower cost. The systems can operate with single-mode or multi-mode cable and transceivers which allow the system to use a cable up to a few hundred meters with a temperature range from -40°C to +85°C.

The Adnaco-S1A and Adnaco-S2B systems consist of host adapter and remote backplane connected by a fiber optic cable. The Adnaco-H1A PCIe 5GT/s Gen 2 Host Adapter Card provides an interface between a host computer PCIe bus and a fiber optic cable. Two versions of the remote backplane are offered. The R1BP1A has 2 PCI slots and 2 PCIe x16 slots. It is intended for applications where customers need to operate legacy PCI add-in cards along with PCI Express Gen 2 and Gen 1 cards. The R1BP1B has four PCIe Gen 2 x16 slots backward compatible with Gen 1. Both backplanes can operate in temperature range from -20°C to +85°C or -40°C to +85°C depending on optical transceiver.

The optical isolation and long cable allows the system integrator to use the system in applications where equipment has to be isolated from computer or operate under harsh environmental conditions. The unique feature of the Adnaco PCI Express over fiber optic technology is its transparent access to remote devices without compromising performance over long cables. The Adnaco expansion system is transparent to software applications and drivers, so industry standard desktop computers and servers can communicate with remote devices with no additional programming.

The Adnaco-S1A and Adnaco-S1B are available for order in production quantity. For ordering and pricing information please see the
