Comtech AHA Corp. has announced prototype availability of the AHA361-PCIX that adds GZIP compression to Internet data streams.

Supporting GZIP/Deflate compression for web host applications, the PCI-X plug-in card offers data transfer rates at a maximum throughput of 1.2Gbps. The GZIP board accepts any data type including HTML, JavaScript, XML, Office documents, Executables (.exe), Cascade Style Sheets (CSS), PDF documents, and PowerPoint presentations. It features an open standard compression algorithm (GZIP/Deflate) and uses patented hardware compression ICs. Uncompressed data is sent to the board via the PCI-X edge card interface, compressed, and the output is transferred back to the host over the same PCI-X interface.

Pricing starts at $750 per unit with quantity discounts available for larger volumes.
