General Description

Thank you for selecting the QLA2xxx Fibre Channel (FC) board. The QLA2xxx board is an intelli-
gent, high-performance, Direct Memory Access (DMA) bus master host adapter designed for high-
end systems. The intelligence and performance are derived from the ISP2xxx chips, making the
QLA2xxx board a leading-edge host adapter. The ISP2xxx combines a powerful reduced-instruction
Set Computer (RISC) processor, a Fibre Protocol Module (FPM) with gigabit transceivers, and a
Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) local bus interface in a single-chip solution. The
QLA2xxx board supports all FC peripherals that support Private Loop Direct Attach (PLDA) and
Fabric Loop Attach (FLA). Installation of the QLA2xxx board is quick and easy.
