SW FSC/001 - Fabric Switch Configuration Software Tool

The SW FSC/001 Switch Configuration Tool is a software package which allows the user to configure and control several of the features of Concurrent Technologies Ethernet switch fabric board and PCI Express® switch fabric board products for VME, VXS, VPX and CompactPCI® architectures. It works in conjunction with the board’s standard operating firmware but runs on a host computer (which may be a single-board computer or a PC) that is connected to the switch board via a serial port. Alternatively, when the host computer board and the switch board are both in a CompactPCI backplane, the communication between the host computer and the switch board may be via the IPMB connection in the backplane. The Switch Configuration Tool will run on Microsoft® Windows® or Linux® operating systems. The tool uses a command line dialog for operator command entry.
