Paper Abstract

The high performance parallel interface (HIPPI) is an emerging ANSI X3T9.3 Committee standard for high speed data communications over high performance computer networks. The maximum allowable cable length for transmitting the HIPPI-PH parallel data is 25 meters. The purpose of a fiber optic serial HIPPI extender is to provide a totally transparent, highly reliable connection up to 10 km in length. A means of serializing HIPPI data is described together with elements of the fiber optic design. The frame format plus the fiber optic component and link requirements are discussed. Performance of the BCP Model 1200 HIPPI extender is given.
