■GiGA CONNECTION features and connection configuration example

In the network, GiGA CONNECTION products to be installed in each node can be connected by optical fiber cable with ring system (*1) or line system, and data can be transferred between arbitrary nodes. Protocol processing of communication is done automatically by hardware, so the burden of software is small and system construction can be easily done.

In addition, in the conventional GiGA CHANNEL series, even if one link is broken, all node data transfer can not be performed, but in the case of GiGA CONNECTION products, data transfer is possible between linked nodes.

Besides, the serial network is free from collision of frames on the serial transmission line, it is easy to detect trouble on the transmission line, and it is easy to maintain reliability of data. Since the protocol is simple, it is easy to share data between different systems and OS. (*1)Ring method is upgraded in the future
