ETH29-G

Intelligent high performance VMEbus Ethernet controller board

The ETH29-G is an intelligent high performance VMEbus Ethernet controller board. It has been designed to support extremely high data transfer rates with a minimum impact on the system load. The board combines a true 32-bit architecture with a powerful RISC processor to enable the utilization of the Ethernet network´s maximum throughput. The Motorola PowerQUICC II Pro processor handles all of the local network protocols up to Layer 5 and thus enables an effective transfer rate of up to 4 MByte/sec. with all network protocols. The ETH29-G board supports all of today´s standard protocols (TCP/IP, DECNet, ISO/OSI protocol) All of the N.A.T. network protocols are based on N.A.T.´s Universal Protocol Stack Architecture (UPSA) which supports the simultaneous and independent execution of different network protocols on the ETH29-G board. Drivers for VxWorks and others are available.
