Issue Details

I would like to use the cPCI-5565PIORC Reflective Memory Module in single mode. Does this module support single mode or multimode?


The cPCI-5565PIORC supports single mode and multimode fiber over the same interface.

It switches the mode automatically depending on which fiber is connected to the interface.
The only requirement is that all modules in the Reflective-Memory network must use the same fiber mode.

The optical fiber requirements can be found in Section 1.6: Cable Configuration of the cPCI-5565PIORC User Manual.
