The ICP6000X is a programmable serial data communications processor board that links legacy and specialty protocol networks to VME-based computers.
The ICP6000X functions as a front end processor for real-time, mission-critical applications and off-loads high-speed data communications tasks which otherwise consume host processor capacity. The programmability and flexibility of the ICP6000X ensures that it can adapt as connectivity requirements change with the addition of protocols, clients, or devices.
Wide Variety of Protocols
Over 100 different legacy and specialty protocols are available
for use with the ICP600X. With more than 25 years experience in
WAN protocol development, Simpact and Protogate have built the
industry's most extensive library of legacy and specialty
protocols, and Protogate is a leading supplier of network-level
and link layer protocols such as X.25, HDLC, Bisync, Async,
SCADA protocols, financial market protocols, and a wide variety
of tactical, military, and radar protocols.
Designed for Performance
The ICP6000X enhances system performance by off-loading CPU-intensive
communications protocol processing and associated interrupts from the
Up to 16 serial ports can be programmed to support different line speeds.
On-board DRAM provides ample storage for protocol data buffering.
On-board data buffering is useful for applications involving data
segmentation, bursts of data, or host processing delays.
The ICP6000X performs data transfers to and from its host by acting
as a VMEbus master.
Industry's Largest Selection of Protocols
Protogate supports more than 100 WAN protocols, including X.25, HDLC, BSC, Mode I (AUTODIN) and Mode II (AUTODIN), ADCCP, TADIL, SCADA, and many other protocols used by financial data services, airlines, utilities, transportation industries, the government and the military.
