PE2G6I35 Server Adapter

Six Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Server Adapter Intel® i350AM2 Based

Silicom’s Six Port Copper 1 Gigabit Ethernet Card PCI Express is PCI-Express X8 network interface card that contains six Gigabit Copper ports on a PCI-Express adapter.

Silicom’s Six Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet Card is the ideal solution for implementing multiple network segments, mission-critical high-powered networking applications and environments within high performance servers.

Silicom’s Six Port Copper Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Server adapter is based on Intel i350AM4 Quad port Gigabit Ethernet MAC+PHY and Intel i350AM2 Dual port Gigabit Ethernet MAC+PHY of Intel Controller. The Silicom i350 support PCI-SIG Single-Root I/O virtualization and sharing specification (SR-IOV).
