The PCI-5587A product allows data to be shared up to 256 independent systems (nodes) at network data rates up to 29.5 Mbyte/s. Each VMIPCI-5587A board may be configured with 1 to 64 Mbyte of onboard RAM. The memory options of 1, 4, and 8 Mbyte are provided to ensure compatibility with existing xxx-5588 products.

  • Network data transferred at 14.8 Mbyte/s with redundant transfer
  • Network data transferred at 29.5 Mbyte/s without redundant transfer
  • Up to 1,000 feet between nodes and up to 256 nodes
  • Data written to memory in one node is normally written to memory in all nodes on the network
  • High speed, easy to use fiber-optic network (1.2 Gbaud serially)
  • Up to 64 Mbyte of Reflective Memory with network data rate up to 29.5 Mbyte/s
  • Real time network for computers with PCI interfaces
  • Any node on the network can generate an interrupt in any other node on the network or in all network nodes with a single command
