Sci standard dolphin sci technology

SCI Standard - Dolphin SCI Technology

  • WHAT IS SCI?

    • The SCI standard ANSI/IEEE 1596-1992 defines a point-to-point interface and a set of packet protocols.

    • The protocols use small packet sizes with a 16-byte header and data sizes of 16, 64, 128 and 256 bytes.

    • Packets are protected by a 16-bit CRC code.

    • An SCI interface has two unidirectional links that operate concurrently.

    • The SCI protocols support shared memory by encapsulating bus requests and responses into SCI request and response packets.

    • Bus like protocol with Packet-based handshake protocols and guaranteed data delivery.

    • 64 bits addressing and the most significant 16 bits are used for addressing up to 64K nodes.

    • A set of cache coherence protocols are defined to maintain cache coherence in a shared memory system.

    • Message passing is supported by a compatible subset of the SCI protocols. This protocol subset does not invoke SCI cache coherency protocols.

Unique features of the dolphin sci pci technolgy

Unique Features of the Dolphin SCI/PCI Technolgy

  • Bus Bridging Capability

    • Bus Requests and Responses are translated directly in HW to Request and Response Packets

    • Point to Point Links gives Bus Performance and Latency over Distance

  • Ultra Low Latency, High Bandwidth

    • 1.4us to deliver 4 bytes, 14.4us to deliver 4k bytes

    • 326 MegaBytes/s sustained throughput

  • Choice of Topologies

    • Ring, Torus, Switched – Hundreds of nodes

  • Wide Application Area

  • Well Proven, Shipped to Critical Applications for >6 years
