The CPC348 is designed as a fully programmable communications subsystem capable of sustaining high data rates for a variety of protocols used in synchronous data communications.
The architecture of the CPC348 capitalizes on the leading edge capabilities of the MPC860MH, Motorola's PowerQUICC®-based datacomm processor. This device is specifically designed as a very high performance, specialized communications controller.
The CPC348 adapter enhances overall system performance by utilizing the onboard intelligence and large 16 MB DRAM array dedicated exclusively to the PowerQUICC®. This provides adequate memory space for accepting WAN application programs upon boot, and for data storage during program execution.
Critical to any fault tolerant/HA system is the ability to "hot swap" its board level components. The CPC348 fully complies with PICMG hot swap specifications to the HA level. 80mm rear transition modules for the CPC348 improve reliability by being fully passive (no active components).
With a well-defined API, the integrated protocol suite from Performance Technologies reduces time to market by eliminating unnecessary development time at the hardware/protocol level. The protocols for our standard WAN hardware products enable development engineers to proceed directly to integration and application development efforts.
Performance Technologies' comprehensive suite of WAN communications protocols provides complete WAN connectivity solutions for Frame Relay, HDLC, LAPD, X.25, and PPP protocols. Operating system support includes Solaris®, Windows NT®, and Linux®.
For the Solaris® environment, our ComLink™ Communications Software provides both a transparent link to all SunLink® protocols, as well as a documented set of driver primitives for developing synchronous/serial related applications.
