Page 1 of 1
Targeted for its direct-to-disk, long-duration recording and playback systems, Conduant has introduced its StreamStor Optical High Speed Serial Mezzanine Board. It can be used with compatible StreamStor controllers to provide direct data input utilizing Serial Front Panel Data Port (sFPDP) and other protocols including bonded and multi-channel versions of SeriaLite II. When combined with the StreamStor Amazon Express controller, the interface can support recording and playback performance up to 800 megabytes per second for applications in defense, scientific research and commercial markets.
The StreamStor Optical High Speed Serial Mezzanine Board supports independent multi-port recording and playback for up to four data streams. Some protocols support the bonding of all 4 channels to aggregate the performance for a single channel at higher speed. The board demonstrates flexibility by supporting widely used cabling and data protocols to ensure maximum data transfer rates with minimum overhead. An on-board Altera field programmable gate array (FPGA) allows for configuring multiple input/output (IO) protocols and other parameters. The StreamStor Optical High Speed Serial Mezzanine Board can be ordered with support for data rates from 1.06 to 3.125 gigabytes per second and wavelengths of 850 nm or 1300 nm to support cable lengths up to 25 kilometers. The board uses standard LC optical connector style for easy connection to compatible data sources. Pricing starts at $3,500.
