fbC2CGg3 Capture Card

Dual QSFP28 port card supporting 2x100G Ethernet, PCIe Gen3 x16 lanes

The Silicom Denmark fb2CGg3 offers 2x100GE network connectivity and line rate capture to host memory with zero packet loss and hardware packet processing.

The fbC2CGg3 card is based on cutting edge Xilinx FPGA technology, providing packet filtering, advanced processing, traffic management, load balancing and host offloading mechanisms.

This high performance hardware platform connects to 100GE using QSFP28 modules and performs packet processing, while delivering a sustained throughput to host memory of up to 112 Gbps.

The use of QSFP28 cages also allows use of QSFP to support 8x10GE, 2x40GE as wells as 8x25GE, if required.

The card uses a single-slot PCIe solution through a 16-lane PCIe slot and allows for effective traffic management and load balancing in NUMA environments.
