IXS600 features gives users the ability to scale applications by connecting multiple cabled PCI Express devices in transparent mode or to cluster high speed processing solutions. As a key component of Dolphin’s PCI Express product family, the IXS600 provides the scalability for all types of cluster computing and I/O expansion applications.
The IXS600 is a switching component in Dolphin's PCI Express product family. This 8 port 1U cluster switch delivers 64 Gbps of non-blocking bandwidth per port at ultra low latency. Each connection is fully compliant with PCI Express Gen1, Gen2 and Gen3 I/O specifications. Standard iPass™ connectors are used to connect copper or fiber-optic cabling.
For Non Transparent Bridging (NTB) operations, the IXS600 is combined with Dolphin’s iPass based Host Adapters and XMC Adapters. Operating in NTB mode, Dolphin has solved the strict power on requirements normally associated with PCI Express. Hosts, cables, and the switch can be hot-swapped and power cycled in any order, providing real plug and play as normally expected from networking components.
The IXS600 supports Dolphin’s extensive PCI Express Software libraries to create a powerful and reliable communication solution for applications that benefit from an ultra-low latency, high performance cluster interconnect. Dolphin’s PCI Express Software enables standard and embedded Linux, Windows, RTX and VxWorks network applications to benefit from PCI Express performance without modification. This comprehensive solution is ideal for real-time, technical and high performance computing, cloud computing, and enterprise business applications.
