eXpressWare Fabric Software for Windows

Dolphins eXpressWare for Windows includes three main components; a complete low level API for shared memory applications(SISCI), a robust sockets API (SuperSockets), and a standard TCP/IP driver (IPoPCIe). These three components create a comprehensive develop and deployment environment for applications using a PCIe Network.

PCIe Networks are designed for performance and reliability. eXpressWare software is designed for these networks. It maximizes the low latency and throughput advantages of PCI Express. Enabling customers to build scalable networks with PCIe cabling or backplane applications. The software suite supports a variety of chipsets from major silicon providers such as IDT and PLX/Broadcom. eXpressWare software supports standard form factor boards and switches from Dolphin, but can also be customized to support third party boards and applications.

eXpressWare supports all popular versions of Windows. The Windows version is ideal for low latency clustering of systems. It delivers extremely low latency as well as high performance Sockets and TCP/IP throughput between Windows Servers. SuperSockets supports communication to Linux systems running the new Linux user space software library.
