With the SX6-FIREWO RKS host adapter for CompactPCI® Serial systems, EKF provides a dual port optical fiber cabling solution, which enables Gen3 PCIe® links up to 100m, delivering 64Gbps each to associated target systems equipped with the SXD-FIREWORKS target adapter.
Compared to other cabling solutions e.g. 40Gbps Ethernet, a PCI Express® Gen3 x8 link offers higher data transfer rates at lower
latency. The SX6/SXD-FIREWORKS cards are equipped with MPO/MTP front panel adapters, for attachment of 24- or 12-fiber
optical patch cables.
