InfiniHost III Lx Single-Port InfiniBand HCA Cards with PCI Express
InfiniHost III Lx single-port 4X InfiniBand Host Channel Adapter (HCA) cards connect to the host system through a PCI Express interface. Single data rate (SDR) InfiniHost III Lx cards support 10Gb/s InfiniBand connections while the double data rate (DDR) version supports 20Gb/s InfiniBand connections. InfiniHost III Lx HCA cards deliver the most cost effective 10 or 20Gb/s solution available and feature remote direct memory access (RDMA), hardware transport, and advanced per queue pair (QP) QoS services.
The MHES14 card can be directly inserted into PCI Express x4 or wider slots, while both the MHES18 and MHGS18 can be directly inserted into PCI Express x8 or wider slots of standard servers, blade servers, storage and communications platforms to provide node connectivity for InfiniBand fabrics. All adapter cards utilize a 4X MicroGigaCN InfiniBand compliant connector for copper cables. This copper connector provides the lowest cost 10 or 20Gb/s connection available. In addition, a pluggable media adapter module can be used for fiber connections up to 300m.
