Eight Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet Express Module Server Adapter

Silicom’s Eight Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet ExpressModule Server adapter is PCI-Express X8 Eight Copper Gigabit Ethernet network interface card that can fit into a 3.5” HD form factor.

The Silicom Eight Port Copper ExpressModule is the front I/O module in Silicom Server to Network Appliance Converter (SETAC) architecture.

Silicom’s Eight Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet ExpressModule Server adapter is designed for Servers and high-end appliances. The performance is optimized so that system I/O is not the bottleneck in high-performance networking applications.

 

Silicom’s Eight Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet ExpressModule server adapters are based on Intel i350 Ethernet controller with quad fully integrated Gigabit Ethernet Media Access Control (MAC) and PHY.

Silicom’s Eight Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet ExpressModule server adapters are the ideal solution for implementing multiple network segments, mission-critical high-powered networking applications and environments within high performance servers.
