Characterized by its low profile implementation which is a vital requirement for many customer implementations


  • Features 2.12 Gbaud serial connection speed, improved Programmed I/O (PIO) read performance, field upgradeable firmware and RoHS compliance, and the maximum PCI burst rate has been doubled to 512MBytes/second: larger memory (256MBytes) is also supported
  • GE's reflective memory networks can be scaled to 256 nodes
  • Operate at speeds up to 174 Mbytes/second
  • Distance between nodes can be up to 10 kilometers
  • Reflective memory can offer an ideal solution in many demanding applications because of its low latency and determinism
  • Using reflective memory, the typical node-to-node propagation time is on the order of 1 microsecond
  • In a system of 30 nodes, it would take only 30 microseconds to propagate through the network to all nodes
  • Achieving the same latency using other network technologies, such as Ethernet, is extremely difficult ? if not impossible - even using datagram broadcast because of IP protocol overheads, addressing, and memory write times
