Quad Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Packet Processor Server Adapter

Silicom’s Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express RMI Packet Processor Server Adapter is designed for servers and high-end appliances.

The Silicom’s Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express RMI Packet Processor server adapter is targeted for network applications, such as multiservice VPN/Firewall/IDS systems, that needs to process and monitor packets.

The Silicom’s Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express RMI Packet Processor server adapter offloads host system possessor from various tasks related to packet processing. In networks rates up to 1Gigabit this is essential.

The Silicom’s Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express RMI Packet Processor server adapter is a complete PCI Express server adapter solution incorporates security acceleration engine with up to 2.5 Gigabit of DES/3DES, AES, SHA-1, MD5 and RSA to support in-line IPSec, SSL, and other secure protocol processing.

The Silicom’s Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express RMI Packet Processor server adapter can be programmable using SuperSOC™ solution built for a C/C++ environment; it eliminates the need for microcoding or proprietary scripting to enable rapid application development and leverages widely available, well understood development tools.

The Silicom’s Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express RMI Packet Processor server adapter is based on XLS416: RMI Multi-Core Superscalar Communication Processor.

The Silicom’s Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express RMI Packet Processor server adapter offers simple integration into any PCI Express X4 to Gigabit Network.
