Silicom PX-Series PXG6 Server 6-port Gigabit adapter PXG6Item Number: SIL-PXG6-NP-OE
Manufacturer's Part Number: PXG6
Silicom PX-Series Server 6-port Gigabit adapter / Card / NIC - PXG6 - New Pull
The Silicom PX-Series Server Gigabit adapters are 64-bit/133MHz PCI-X network interface cards that contain multiple / single independent Gigabit port/s on one PCI-X adapter.
Silicom PX-Series Server adapters are based on the fourth generation of Broadcom BCM57XX PCI-X Gigabit Ethernet controllers that feature industry leading performance for PCI-X server Adapters.
Copper Gigabit Ethernet 1000Base-T:
• Independently copper Gigabit Ethernet channels support six, four, two and one Gigabit Ethernet (1000Base-T), Fast Ethernet (100Base-Tx) and Ethernet (10Base-T).
• Triple speed 1000Mbps (1000Base-T), 100 Mbps (100Base-Tx) and 10 Mbps (100Base-T) operation.
• Nway auto negotiation automatic sensing and switching between 1Gbps full duplex and 100 / 10 Mbps operations Simplex or Full Duplex.
• RJ-45 female connectors.
Common Key features:
• Host Interface standard support:
• PCI v2.2 32/64 bit, 33/66Mhz
• PCI-X v1.0 32/64-bit, 66/100/133MHz
• High performance, reliability, and low power use in Broadcom 5704 dual integrated MAC + PHY / SERDES chip controller.
• Ultra deep, 64 KB packet buffer per channel lowers CPU utilization, avoids PCI-X congestion
• Dual high speed RISC processor per channel for advanced packet classification.
• Hardware acceleration that can offload tasks from the host processor. The controllers can offload TCP/UDP/IP checksum calculations and TCP segmentation.
• Server class reliability, availability and performance features:
• Link Aggregation and Load Balancing:
• Switch dependent: 802.3ad (LACP), Generic Trunking ( GEC / FEC)
• Switch and NIC Independent.
• Priority queuing – 802.1p layer 2 priority encoding.
• Virtual LANs –802.1q VLAN tagging.
• Jumbo Frame (9KB).
• 802.x flow control.
• Boot ROM embedded or optional can be used for Boot ROM applications.
• PCI Power Management Interface. (v1.1)
• PCI Hot Plug. (IBM, Compaq, Dell, and Microsoft)
• Statistics for SNMP MIB II, Ethernet like MIB, and Ethernet MIB (802.3z, Clause 30)
• LEDs indicators for link/Activity/Speed status
The Silicom PXG6 has been verified by Sun to operate under Solaris 10 and Solaris 10 (64 Bit) operating systems.
