|Product CN-8345 - 10Base-T & 10Base-FL 16-Bit AT ISA NIC with RJ45 and ST/SMA Connectors
The CodeNet-8345 is a 16 bit 10BASE-T and 10BASE-FL combination Ethernet network adapter for the Industry Standard
Architecture (ISA) bus. This adapter operates in either 8-bit or
16-bit ISA slots or in any EISA slot. The board design allows the
adapter to map its on-board RAM directly into the host system's
main memory (shared memory mode), or to use a Base I/O
address for network adapter data transfer (NE2000 + mode).
CodeNet-8345 ISA adapter provides a high performance,
fiber optic link to an Ethernet network segment, based upon
the IEEE 10BASE-T and 10BASE-FL standards. The 10BASE-FL specification also includes backwards compatible with the
earlier Fiber Optic Inter Repeater Link (FOIRL) IEEE standard.
Using the fiber interface, workstations can be more than 2
kilometers (1.2 miles) from the hub. The twisted pair network
interface provides a link to the hub that can extend 100 meters
(325 feet). CodeNet -8345 10BASE T/10BASE-FL/FOIRL cards
are compatible with other 10BASE-T, FOIRL, or 10/BASE-FL
products and can be used in an open systems environment
with other manufacturers' hubs and repeaters.
Twisted Pair and Fiber Optic Ethernet interfaces in one
adapter, connects an ISA computer to any 10BASE-T;
10BASE-FL or FOIRL Ethernet segment.
Dual-ported 16-Kbyte shared memory or Base I/O board
access for exceptional performance. No DMA channels
Software support for popular network software systems,
including: Novell NetWare 386, Microsoft LAN Manager
(NDIS), Windows for Workgroup, Windows NT, Novell's
UnixWare, Solaris 86, IBM's OS/2, SCO and Banyan
Operates in either 8-bit or 16-bit ISA slots or in any EISA
Fully compatible with the IEEE 802.3 10BASE-FL;
10BASE-T and FOIRL standards.
Computers can be more than 2 kilometers (1.2 miles)
apart using the 10BASE-FL interface, and at least 100
meters for an Ethernet hub using the 10BASE-T network
Built-in Link Integrity, Reverse Polarity indicators and
optical "idle" signal enhance data integrity, simplify
problem resolution and allow simple measurements of
transmitter power for testing fiber cable links.
CodeNet-8345 adapters are fully compatible with other
10BASE-T, FOIRL or 10BASE-FL products and can be
used with other manufacturers' concentrators and
