Short Take: IBM offers new network adapter chip

IBM's microelectronics division has released a chip for companies building adapters that connect servers to Fibre Channel storage networks. The new chip, costing $52 in quantities of 1,000, acts as a bridge between the Fibre Channel network on one side and a server using the new PCI-X slot on the other. Companies that will use the chip in their network cards include Emulex, Adaptec, Mylex and American Megatrends, IBM said.
