It does not wait for the frame to be written in memory. The ASIC contains the Fibre Channel interface logic. Each ASIC provides eight Fibre Channel ports that you can use to connect to external node N_ports (as an F_port). message and buffer queuing logic. A 32-channel SERDES is used to support 32 ports. to be used for receipt of frames. it reads the frame contents from central memory and forwards the frame to its transmit interface. a set of buffers in the central memory is assigned to each port. The maximum Fibre Channel data payload is 2112 bytes. external loop devices (as an FL_port). When a destination port is capable of transmitting the frame. Each port can operate at either 1. The Bloom ASICs are PCI slaves to the CPU. ASICs Eight ASICs within the system provide the switching functionality. This allows the receiving port to reuse the buffer for subsequent frames that are received. Memory blocks are accessed in a time-sliced fashion. the firmware can perform a read or write on a frame in one of the buffers while the ASIC streams another frame into the other buffer. The interface between ASIC and SERDES is also a 10-bit SSTL2 bus running at 106. The Bloom ASIC has a special memory interface (SMI). through inter-chip connections.125 Gbps link speeds. receive buffer memory for the on-chip ports. The SMI includes a set of two buffers that are large enough for an entire maximum-sized frame to be transferred in a single operation. The ASIC contains a mini-buffer mechanism. or to other 3534 or 2109 devices (as an E_port). using mini-buffers (312 bytes each) effectively expands the buffer pool and increases the efficiency of memory usage by providing more (but smaller) receive buffers. which optimizes central memory buffering in the ASIC when frames smaller than the Fibre Channel maximum are received. and other support logic. After the destination port has removed a frame entry from its internal transmit queue in preparation for frame transmission. it stores the frame in one of its receive buffers in the central memory and forwards a routing request (“put” message) to the appropriate destination ports.The 2109 Model F32 provides 256 MB of compact flash in a removable but not field-upgradeable module. You access compact flash through a compact flash IDE/ATA native mode controller through the PCI bus. If frames that need to be buffered are smaller than the maximum 2112 bytes. unless the port is busy. because two buffers are available. The central memory is incorporated into the ASICs. This message indicates that the transmission is complete. Frames that are received on the ports in an ASIC are written into the portion of central memory in the receiving chip.25 MHz.

the output port lines are driven to indicate that no message is present. SFP devices are encased in metal to ensure low emissions and high thermal management. in any given clock cycle. The CMI interfaces for the ASICs are connected inside each ASIC through a message crossbar. Control message interface The 2109 Model F32 control message interface (CMI) consists of a set of control signals that are used to pass hardware-level messages between ports. the 2109 Model F32 uses SFP fiber optic transceivers that convert electrical signals to optical signals (and optical signals to electrical signals). The SERDES supports single data rate (SDR) or double data rate (DDR) transfer between the SERDES and the SFP media. F. Introduction 7 .media and vice versa. The time slicing of the output CMI control signals of the ASICs are arranged out of phase from each other so that. Two LEDs for each port provide port status and link speed information. and longwave laser connections. Ports The 2109 Model F32 supports the following port types: v Optical ports v Ethernet ports v Serial ports Each ASIC in the 2109 Model F32 switch connects up to eight SFP media. Transmitting ports also use the CMI to inform recipient ports that a frame transmission has completed. The SFP media connects to external devices and enables support for shortwave. No administration is needed to identify the port type. The DDR operation supports 2. loop. messages that display at the input control signal interface of a given ASIC are also time sliced through each possible source chip in the switch. They are hot-swappable and use industry-standard local channel connectors. Otherwise. Each port provides ISL. and fabric (E. the chip uses the time slot to send the message. Optical ports For optical ports.125 Gbps data transfer rate between ASICs. Thus. implementing a “barrel shift” message scheme. and FL respectively) type connectivity that is automatically sensed. the output port of each chip is time sliced to a different destination chip. Each chip time slices its output port to each possible destination chip in the switch. Recipient ports use these control signals to inform transmitting ports when a new frame needs to be added to the output queue of the transmitter. Each SFP fiber optic transceiver is capable of transmitting at both 1 Gbps and 2 Gbps speeds and supports: v 850 nm SWL on multimode fiber optic cable v 1310 nm LWL on single-mode fiber optic cable These miniature optical transceivers provide high port density and deliver twice the port density of standard removable GBIC transceivers. A recipient port is free to reuse a receive buffer when it is notified that the frame has been transmitted. If it has a message to send to a particular destination during the corresponding time slot.
