SETAC VarioFlex Pyramid

S3A2U3-A2

2U & 3U PCI Express x16 Gen 3.0 Host Connector to Two TWINAX Connectors Interface Adapter

The Silicom SETAC is a solution that converts a standard server to a network appliance.

  • Front system I/O ports
  • I/O modules can be replaced without opening the server chassis
  • Higher ports density than a standard server
  • More reliable solution than a standard PCI Express NIC

SETAC Network appliances are based on standard server with front hot-swap HD.

The SETAC Network appliance includes SETAC backplane that replaces a server HD backplane.

In a standard server, a HD backplane supports only SAS / SATA technology – Silicom SETAC backplane supports PCI Express and SAS / SATA technology.

Silicom SETAC solution based on Silicom ExpressModule cards, providing widest networking and Bypass solution. The Silicom’ s S3A2U3-A2 is Express x16 Gen 3.0 Host Connector to Two TWINAX Connectors Interface Adapter
