The ETH29-FC 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 32bit architecture with a powerful RISC processor to enable the utilization of the maximum throughput of the network. The Motorola MCF5407 "ColdFire" processor handles all of the local network protocols up to layer 5 (OSI) and thus enables an effective transfer of up to 1 MB/sec with all network protocols. The ETH29-FC board supports today's standard protocols such as TCP/IP, DECNet or ISO/OSI.
