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 required.
  • 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 Vines.
  • Operates in either 8-bit or 16-bit ISA slots or in any EISA slot.
  • 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 interface.
  • 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 repeaters.
