Protocol Converters and Bridges
Protocol converters and bridges are a way to allow you to
legacy hardware to more modern systems - or Legacy systems to modern
hardware. Whether you need to simply connect an HVD SCSI device to an
LVD host (or vice versa) or need to connect your existing SCSI tape
library to a new fibre network, Avax has the solution that you need.

SAS (Serial attached SCSI)
family of SCSI<>iSCSI bridges allow you to
quickly and easily connect legacy SCSI storage devices to an
iSCSI network. We also offer SCSI to iSCSI to allow a host
system that may not support the iSCSI protocol to connect directly to
an iSCSI network.

offer both entry level and enterprise class fibre-SCSI bridges to
allow you to use SCSI interface storage devices on a fibre network.
As with the iSCSI units, we also provide bridges to allow the
conncention of a SCSI based host system to a fibre network.

Avax now offers tape emulation units with SCSI or Pertec interface that
write to "Flash Memory" cards
as the media instead of tapes.

Avax SCSI PERTEC tape adaptor enables users of standard Pertec
interface tape drives to connect these units to the new generation of
SCSI tape controllers. Owners of existing tape drives who are upgrading
system types can now migrate their drive to the new system, thus
avoiding the expense of replacing the unit.
SCSI PERTEC adaptor provides hardware emulation to the SCSI host, thus
avoiding the need for special drivers. Emulations are available for a
variety of devices including Standard SCSI, IBM 9346, 9348 and DEC
tape adaptor is available a board only, or as a complete sub-system
housed in a small self contained chassis complete with universal power
supply. Cables are provided with the complete unit to connect the unit
to the tape drive and to the SCSI controller. Installation is simple
and requires no modification to the tape drive. All tape densities are

Avax Pertec to SCSI interface is designed to allow a modern, high
capacity SCSI interface tape drive to interface directly to the
manufacturer supplied interface on any system that currently supports a
standard Formatted Pertec interface drive.
This interface is available:
a board level product
a standalone unit with power supply and cables
integrated into a complete
drive, disk drive or flash tape unit.
Avax LVD<>HVD converters provide an easy way to connect a
modern LVD SCSI controller to an HVD device, or an HVD controller to an LVD device.
Controllers are available as just a board for integration by the end
user, or as standalone devices with power supply and connectors to
enable quick and easy connection to the host system and device.
