Wiwynn® P16RC (PCIe 3.0 Retimer card)


PCIe 3.0 Retimer card

Best suited for data-intensive applications, the PCIe 3.0 Retimer card effectively increases data throughput and scalability.
Where to Buy
PCIe Interconnection Enables Data Disaggregation
With Wiwynn P16RC, connection between compute and storage become easy. It is now possible to disaggregate storage away from the compute and vice versa with no penalty to performance. Flexibly, it can use switch between different modes: 1 x16 or 2 x8, connecting to one or more PCIe storage expansion.
Performance and Reliability Improvement
Wiwynn P16RC is designed to give maximum efficiency to the growing demand of increased data throughput and scalability. It can significantly improve performance and reliability by sustaining signal quality of PCIe 3.0 across long or noisy connections in computing, storage, and communications applications.
Best Flexibility for Data-intensive Applications
The Wiwynn P16RC is a 32-channel (16-lane) retimer capable of 8 Gbps-per-channel transfers, providing a total of 256 Gbps of communication bandwidth, which is the best suited for data-intensive applications.
Dynamic Optimization for Performance
Wiwynn P16RC includes a high-performance continuous-time linear equalizer analog front-end followed by a five-tap decision feedback equalizer and clock-data-recovery circuit. This high-performance input with dynamic optimization can recover poor quality input signals, correct random and deterministic jitter, and boost transmit amplitude – enabling communication over long cables, long traces, or system backplanes.

 Web Server

High-computing and high power efficiency

Bandwidth throttling to limit the speed of responses. Support web applications and web services with the compact combination of High-computing and high power efficiency.

The most simple definition is that a Web server runs a website by returning HTML files over an HTTP connection. This definition may have been true in the early days of the Internet, but the line has blurred between websites, Web applications and Web services, etc.

For example, a server that delivers an XML document to another device can be a Web server. A better definition might be that a Web server is any Internet server that responds to HTTP requests to deliver content and services.

Common features

1. Virtual hosting to serve many web sites using one IP address

2. Large file support to be able to serve files whose size is greater than 2. 2 GB on 32 bit OS

3. Bandwidth throttling to limit the speed of responses in order to not saturate the network and to be able to serve more clients

4. Server-side scripting to generate dynamic web pages, still keeping web server and website implementations separate from each other
