Eight Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet and Security accelerator Multifunction ExpressModule Server Adapter

Silicom’s Eight Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet and security protocol accelerator multifunction ExpressModule Server adapter is PCI-Express X8 Eight Copper Gigabit Ethernet network interface card and security protocol accelerator that can fit into a 3.5” HD form factor. The Silicom Eight Port Copper Express Module is the front I/O module in Silicom Server to Network Appliance Converter (SETAC) architecture.

Silicom’s Eight Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet and security 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 and security protocol accelerator multifunction ExpressModule Server adapters are based on Intel 82580EB Ethernet controller with quad fully integrated Gigabit Ethernet Media Access Control (MAC) and PHY and on the Cavium Nitrox PX (16XX) Security protocol processor accelerator.

Silicom’s multifunction security protocol adapter provides bulk cryptographic acceleration for 3DES, DES, AES and ARCFOUR symmetric encryption algorithms, for the SHA-1 and MD5 hash algorithm, and for the HMAC-SHA-1 and HMAC-MD5 keyed authentication algorithms. It provides public key acceleration for the RSA, DSA, and diffie-Helman asymmetric algorithms, as well as basic Modular Math functions.

Macro processing within the CN1620 processor, allows systems to offload high-level SSL or IPsec protocol commands that reduce the host I/O traffic and system processor to increase the total system throughput. This also frees system processor resources for other functions, increasing overall system performance.

The Silicom Protocol Processor ExpressModule adapter is the ideal solution for high-end and mid-end virtual private networking (VPN), firewall appliances and SSL-based appliances.

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