FarSync T2Ee PCIe (PCI Express) Synchronous Communications Network Adapter 2 Port low profile

FarSync T2Ee PCIe More Like This The FarSync T2Ee card and software is designed to provide high performance hardware communications solutions for business, government and military requirements who require a low profile PCIe synchronous communications card with externally sourced line clocks or able to generate a wide range of clock speeds internally. The product includes a low level driver that allows access to the communications features available in the hardware. The card can optionally use the host's standard TCP/IP protocol stack to allow access to IP based networks such as the Internet. The FarSync SDK provides a Developers Toolkit for the product. The T2Ee is a PCIe communications card with two independently configurable sync serial ports. Sync operation supports transparent bitstream and bitsync (HDLC) of up to 10 Mbits/s per line with a total card bandwidth of 40 Mbits/s. The highly flexible universal network connector supports RS232, X.21, RS422, RS530, RS449, RS485 and V.35 network interfaces. Line signalling modes: NRZ, Manchester encoding, FM0, FM1 and Conditioned Diphase (Differential Manchester) up to 10Mbits/s are handled by the FarSite customisable communications controller as well as soft selectable line termination resistance. The transparent bitstream option available with the APIs is suitable for VoIP (as a subsystem), video and voice such as T-DMB (Digital Multimedia Broadcasting), DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) ETI (Ensemble Transport Interface - ETSI EN 300 799). Supplied with standard and low profile PCIe I/O brackets, the photo above shows the FarSync T2Ee fitted with the low profile PCIe I/O bracket and the one below with the standard I/O bracket.

Linux: The Char I/O API provides a programming language independent, high-level interface to the FarSync base driver it supports access to bit synchronous (HDLC) framed and transparent bitstream data. The card can also use the TCP/IP stack to allow access to IP based networks such as the Internet. It also allows selection of the full range of clock modes. The link level protocol used can be PPP, Cisco HDLC, LAPB (using hdlcX API) or Frame Relay with optional authentication by CHAP, MSCHAP or PAP (RFC 1334) thus providing a standard point-to-point network interface. ETI (NI, V.11) is supported with the FarSync SDK. The card installs seamlessly as a plug and play device. The driver supports Linux kernel versions 2.6 and 3.0 including the leading distributions supplied by Redhat, SuSE, CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, Slackware and more. Multi-processor systems are supported. The driver is dynamically loadable so a kernel rebuild is not required for the driver to be installed. FarSite is committed to supporting the cards on new versions of Linux and Linux kernels as they are released. The source code for the driver is supplied with the product allowing rebuilding by the end user for use with almost any of the current or future Linux variants. A configuration utility is provided to set the line speed, interface type and protocol, after which the ports may be configured with standard networking tools. Windows: The FarSync T2Ee supports a Windows based API, common to the entire range of FarSync cards/devices, it is referred to as the FarSync Windows API (FsWinAPI). This is an extension of the MS Win32 COMM API and enables, for example, applications developed to support COM ports, to be easily ported to use FarSync support in synchronous modes. This standardization enables the API to also be readily accessible from higher level environments such as .NET, C#, VB etc. The FsWinAPI provides applications with direct access to the adapter's communications port/s for bit sync (HDLC) framing, LAPB, V.120, ETI (NI, V.11) and also transparent bitstream operation for video and voice type applications. The FarSync T2Ee can also be installed to appear as a NDIS (LAN) interface so it can simply use the TCP/IP stack over PPP to allow access to IP based networks such as the Internet. LabVIEW applications can access this card. The product is supplied with a comprehensive configuration utility. The lines can be reconfigured and restarted without reloading the software. There is context sensitive help and an on-line manual should it be required. An advanced tab permits users to further specify the configuration of the line if necessary. The product is supplied with its own Line Monitor that allows the user to record, display and store line traffic with WAN protocol decoding for fast debugging.
