Broadcom Limited is a Fortune 500 semiconductor manufacturer for wired and wireless communications.
To stay ahead of the competition in the fiercely competitive Telecommunications market, manufacturers spend huge sums on Research and Development. Broadcom spends more than $800 million dollars per quarter on R&D in labs located around the world.
For many years, Broadcom has been using Perle IOLAN Terminal Servers in these labs. Serial data acquired from microcontroller test beds in the lab is sent over Ethernet to remote servers using Perle Terminal Servers as the interface. Broadcom have been using Perle products for years and count on their performance, security and reliability every-day
Broadcom Limited is a diversified global semiconductor leader built on 50 years of innovation, collaboration and engineering excellence. With roots based in the rich technical heritage of technology powerhouses AT&T/Bell Labs, Lucent and Hewlett-Packard/Agilent, Broadcom focuses on technologies that connect our world. With the addition of industry leaders LSI, Avago Technologies and Broadcom Corporation, the company has the size, scope and engineering talent to continue leading the industry into the future.
The FarSync T4Ee is a highly flexible PCIe communications card featuring 4 high speed synchronous / asynchronous / bisynchronous ports with NRZ, NRZI, Manchester Encoding, Conditioned Di-Phase, FM0 and FM1 line signal encoding, fully flexible clocking and a full range of interface signals for RS530, RS449, RS232, RS485 (2 and 4 wire), V.35 and X.21.
At the centre of the card design is a FarSite Communication Controller, a high flexible CPLD that allows the extended range of communications facilities to be supported plus having the capability for further modes of operation to be added, including special or unusual protocols on a custom design basis. Line termination can be software configured line by line.
There is a very wide range of internal clock speeds that can be generated, up to 10 Mbits/s with a total card bandwidth of 64Mbits/s plus the capability for custom clock speeds to be supported through simple software configuration. The 5 clock generators on board permit very flexible routing of clocks between ports including multiplication or division of clocks speed while maintaining clock phase and feeding clocks from one port to other ports.
The card is the 4 port big brother for the 2 port FarSync T2Ee.
The FarLinX Connect Mini is a compact multi mode HDLC bridging appliance. It allows HDLC lines to be bridged securely across the Internet or other /IP networks and also enables HDLC connection data to be adapted to operate over a TCP connection.
All this is easy to securely manage from your browser. There are also daily activity logs with a selectable level of detail, automatically archived on a daily basis. The SNMP support provides alerts for numerous different conditions including critical events such as line down and line up. A line monitor supplied permits analysis of the HDLC line.
TCP to HDLC conversion with the route created statically or dynamically, handles a variety of modes including: character streaming and frame length defined
HDLC ? Internet ? HDLC bridging including static or dynamic routing
LAN accessible HDLC line as a sharable remotely manageable resource
If you travel to Alaska’s interior, approx. 60 km northwest of Delta Junction and 140 km southeast of Fairbanks, you will find the Pogo Mine. Here gold is safely produced 365 days a year. To provide this small community with good and reliable communications is a formidable challenge.
