5.1. CONTROLLER IC's
Hewlett-Packard began shipping the TACHYON IC in early 1995 and today, TACHYON is the industry's leading Fibre Channel controller. HP has carried this leadership forward with the Tachyon TL IC, a 64-bit PCI-to-Fibre Channel controller, that focuses on arbritrated loop topologies for cost-effective, Fibre Channel mass storage designs. Both of these IC's implement the TACHYON family architecture, which is a complete hardware-based design that delivers on the true performance capabilities of Fibre Channel.
