PCI Express 8 Gb Dual-port Fibre Channel Adapter (FC 5735; CCIN 577D)
Learn about the specifications and operating system requirements for the feature code (FC) 5735 adapter.
The PCI Express 8 Gb Dual-port Fibre Channel Adapter is a high-performance adapter based on the
Emulex LPe12002 PCIe Host Bus Adapter (HBA). Each port provides single initiator capability over a
fibre link. The ports have LC type connectors and utilize shortwave laser optics. The adapter connects to
fibre channel switches and operates at link speeds of 2, 4, and 8 Gbps. The adapter automatically
negotiates with the switch to the highest speed of which the switch is capable. LEDs on each port
provide information on the status and link speed of the port.
