SCRAMNet+ PMC network interface card now available.

DAYTON, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 1, 1996--SYSTRAN Corp., developer of the SCRAMNet real-time computer communications network, today unveiled a SCRAMNet+ Network interface card based on the PMC (PCI Mezzanine Card) standard.

This product was developed in conjunction with Wright-Laboratory, Flight Dynamics Directorate, under a Phase II SBIR Contract (Small Business Innovative Research) and is the first in a series of technology transfer products. The SCRAMNet+ PMC interface is a spin-off product of the SCRAMNet-to-ATM Bridge which is in development and due for demonstration at Wright-Laboratory in the fall of 1996.

With the PMC interface, real-time system designers can combine the performance of the SCRAMNet+ Network with the price/performance advantages of any single board computer with an available PMC slot. SCRAMNet+ is used to develop real-time networks for applications such as simulation, telemetry, data acquisition, instrumentation & control, and process control.

The SCRAMNet+ PMC network interface features

-- 16.7 MBytes/sec of data throughput.

-- 250 nSec/node transport delay.

-- Automatic retry on error for guaranteed transmission of

accurate data.

-- Up to 4 MB of memory.

-- A custom ASIC chip which reduces the package to a single

slot.

-- Interrupts for status and memory interrupt events.

-- Event counter/timer with global reset for self-diagnostics,

network performance measurement, and synchronized global

timer functions.

-- Compatibility & interoperability with existing SCRAMNet

nodes.

-- Auto-initialization, configurable via EEPROM, minimizing

the number of hardware switches.

-- Fiber optic media.

The SCRAMNet+ interface for PMC-based computers is currently available with prices starting at $3,995 per node. SCRAMNet nodes are also available for VME3U, VME6U, VME9U, PCI, EISA and Sbus. A Rehostable node is available for special requirements.

The SCRAMNet+ Network is a real-time communication system based on a replicated, shared-memory concept. SCRAMNet+ is optimized for the high-speed, 150 Mbits/sec. transfer of data between computers that are solving portions of the same real-time problem. Its ring configuration achieves microsecond application-to-application performance with zero software overhead.

Located at 4126 Linden Ave., Dayton, Ohio 45432-3068 USA, SYSTRAN Corp. specializes in real-time shared-memory networking, Fibre Channel host bus adapters, I/O IP modules, and defense-related hardware/software research and development. The company's SCRAMNet Network is a leading real-time network, with thousands of nodes used in diverse applications throughout the world.
