PCIe3 LP 16 Gb 2-port Fibre Channel Adapter (FC EN0B; CCIN 577F)
Learn about the specifications and operating system requirements for the feature code (FC) EN0B adapter.
The PCIe3 LP 16 Gb 2-port Fibre Channel Adapter is a low-profile, x8, generation 3, PCIe adapter. This
adapter is a high-performance 8x short form adapter also referred to as a PCIe Host Bus Adapter (HBA).
The adapter provides two ports of 16 Gb Fibre Channel capability using SR optics. Each port can provide
up to 16 Gb Fibre Channel functions simultaneously.
Each port provides single initiator capability over a fibre link or with NPIV, multiple initiator capability is
provided. The ports are SFP+ and include an optical SR transceiver. The ports have little connector-type
(LC) and utilize shortwave laser optics. The adapter operates at link speeds of 4, 8 and 16 Gbps and will
automatically negotiate to the highest speed possible. LEDs on each port provide information on the
status and link speed of the port.
The adapter connects to a Fibre Channel switch at 4 Gb, 8 Gb or 16 Gb. It can directly attach to a device
without a switch at 16 Gb. Attachment without a switch is not supported at 4 Gb or 8 Gb.
N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) capability is supported through VIOS.
The adapter has the following features:
v This adapter has parts and construction compliant with the European Union Directive of Restriction of
Hazardous Substances (RoHS)
Debug monitor in restricted mode
Debug monitor in test fixture mode
Debug monitor in remote debug
