Product Overview

The NIC42XX Card family is a fully-integrated RoHS-compliant PCIe Network Interface Service card that provides flexible processing capabilities for development of telecommunications and other data processing intensive applications.

The NIC42XX Card Family of intelligent Gigabit Ethernet network interface cards (NICs) targets secure network services and compression acceleration in security, storage and networking appliances with up to 12~24Gbps performance

NIC42XX Card provide OCTEONĘ‚ CN54/55/56/57XX which contains a variable hardware accelerator built-in. In case of Security Accelerator, it provides a high performance in IPSec protocol processing through hardware processing with DES/3DES/AES code algorithm and MD5/SHA solving algorithm. The TCP Accelerator providing a concurrent processing for each application flow through the hardware pre-processing in L2-L4 layer. The primary unit of accelerator is a packet order unit to execute it as concurrent processing of sixteen cores. This OCTEONĘ‚ CN54/5/6/7XX provides the high performances because of all packets are handled to parallel or pipeline method.

The NIC42XX Card Family is a network interface module with GbE serial links that provide the main Data Plane traffic connection. The NIC42XX integrates a PCIe interface to provide access to the local bus for the main control and data plane connection.

The NIC42XX provides four 10/100/1000 Base-T/TX interface in front panel

Soldered NOR Flash provides 16M of non-volatile memory for boot, environment and application code storage. The NIC42XX provides Compact Flash Memory Socket(CF Type-I) for root file systems and mass storage. The NIC42XX provides boot-up services, device drivers and Linux Support Package (LSP).
