Dual Port Copper 10 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Server Adapter

Silicom’s 10 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express server adapters are designed for Servers and high-end network appliances. The Silicom 10 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Server adapter offers simple integration into any PCI Express X8 to UTP 10GBase-T Gigabit Networks.

The Silicom’s 10 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express server adapters are based on Mellanox ConnectX-3 Pro EN. The Mellanox ConnectX-3 Pro EN 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller includes two fully integrated Gigabit Ethernet Media Access Control (MAC) and XFI ports.

In addition to managing MAC and PHY Ethernet layer functions, the controller manages PCI Express packet traffic across its transaction, link, and physical/logical layers.


PE310G2M3-T 10g server adapter

The Silicom’s 10 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express server adapter is positioned to address the I/O needs of new wave data centers that demand optimum use of multi-core CPU-based servers, service oriented architectures (SOA) for higher business performance, seamless acceleration of legacy applications, and virtualization for agility and better resource utilization.

Silicom’s 10 Gigabit Ethernet PCI-Express Server adapters are the ideal solution for implementing multiple network segments, mission-critical high-powered networking applications and environments within high performance servers.
