Datapath introduces new products into their Wall Control Systems range.

Datapath Ltd, the Derby-based innovator of computer graphics, video capture and video wall display technology, today announced the general availability of new PCIe Gen. 3 products the Express9-G3 backplane, and the HLink-G3, SLink-G3 and ExCable-G3 PCIe e
Derby, United Kingdom(1/7/2013) -

Datapath Ltd, the Derby-based innovator of computer graphics, video capture and video wall display technology, today announced the general availability of new PCIe Gen. 3 products the Express9-G3 backplane, and the HLink-G3, SLink-G3 and ExCable-G3 PCIe expansion link and cable.

 

Express9-G3 Description and Features:

The Datapath Express9 backplanes provides nine PCI Express slots implemented as x16 physical connectors, they can be used with a standard PICMG 1.3 SBC as a stand-alone system or with Datapath SLink and HLink cards to provide a PCI Express expansion system for a standard PC. The new Datapath Express9-G3 offers:

  • Nine slot PCI Express backplane
  • Eight x 4 lane slot supporting data rates up to 4 GB/s
  • One x 8 lane slot supporting data rates up to 8 GB/s
  • 48 lane PCIe Gen. 3 switch
  • 1 x PICMG 1.3 SBC slot
  • Supports interconnection of multiple backplanes

 

PCI Express Expansion Link: HLink-G3 & SLink-G3 Description and Features:

The HLink-G3 (Host Link) card is used to provide a high bandwidth PCI Express link from an upstream host to a downstream expansion unit. Used with the complementary SLink-G3 (Slave Link) and Datapath backplanes, these cards allows the construction of larger systems comprising many more PCI Express card slots than can be accommodated in a single chassis. Key features of the HLink-G3/SLink-G3 are:

  • PCI Express 3.0 Bus extension across 8 lanes (SLink-G3 has to be used in conjunction with HLink-G3)
  • Peak bandwidth of 8GB/s both upstream and downstream simultaneously
  • Transparent to PCIe fabric (no additional bus hierarchy introduced)
  • Automatically adjusts between PCIe Gen. 1, Gen. 2 and Gen. 3 operation depending on endpoint capabilities
    • Optimizes bandwidth and PCIe lane utilization in conjunction with Datapath backplanes

“We are pleased to introduce these very high performance PCIe connectivity products in support of our ever expanding range of products for wall controller systems” said Bjorn Krylander, CEO at Datapath and continued “the market is asking for higher resolutions, faster video frame rates, and generally more and more data and we are happy to oblige.”
