The Emulex LP1050DC-F2 host bus adapters offers highly integrated 2Gbps Fibre Channel to PCI/PCI-X connectivity solutions for mid-range storage area networks. The LP1050DC-F2 HBAs deliver exceptional performance through the use of "Thor", Emulex's sixth generation Fibre Channel controller. The Thor high performance controller is a dual channel device that combines ARM9 microprocessors, 1Gig/2Gig SERDES, and an advanced Fibre Channel protocol engine into a single module. The LP1050DC-F2 is dual-channel HBA, in a low-profile PCI card form factor that adapts to either standard height or low profile server slots.
Emulex LP1050DC-F2 HBAs feature specialized hardware, which yields superior performance in SANs and provides best in class server CPU off load. Emulex's HBA architecture delivers low latency and high throughput in switched fabric and arbitrated loop topologies, and in clustered environments.
