Hi,

Sounds like a homework assignment! DuckDuckGo or Google should help.

Look at Fibre Channel Adapter to get a general understanding. Section 7 Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters
should show you the meaning.

For a Fibre Channel Controller look at a manufacture specification: http://www.qlogic.com/Products/Contr...ntrollers.aspx
