The LP9802DC Dual Channel PCI-X host bus adapter offers two independent 2Gbps Fibre Channel HBA interfaces in a single PCI-X slot. It delivers exceptional performance through the use of two Emulex Pegasus ASICs, two 266MIPS onboard processors and high speed memory. The LP9802DC features automatic topology detection and automatic speed negotiation, which allows complete compatibility with existing 1Gbps Fibre Channel SANs, while allowing seamless upgrades to higher speed 2Gbps SANs.
The LP9802DC provides the functionality of two of Emulex's high performance PCI-X 133 MHz HBAs integrated onto one board, which provides bus compatibility with PCI-X or PCI 2.2 based systems. This provides the flexibility and broad interoperability needed for complex, highly scalable SANs. The LP9802DC provides a combination of features, including fabric support using F_Port and FL_Port connections, full-duplex data transfers, high data integrity features, support for all Fibre Channel topologies, and support for service classes 2 and 3, in a dual channel HBA.
