CompactPCI® Serial • Dual Port SFP+ 10 Gigabit Ethernet NIC

The SN5-TOMBAK is a peripheral slot card for CompactPCI® Serial systems. The board is equipped with a dual port 10Gbps Ethernet controller. Both ports are available via SFP+ front bezel connector cages, suitable for attachment of either optical cables via SFP+ transceivers or SFP+ twinaxial copper cables. The Intel® 82599ES Ethernet NIC is known for its high performance, low latency, reliability, and flexibility, and is backward compatible to 1Gbps and 100Mbps speeds.

The SN5-TOMBAK is based on PCI Express® 2.1 (up to 5GT/s) and supports x1, x2, x4 and x8 link widths. For optimum performance, the board should be installed in a CompactPCI® Serial fat pipe slot.

The SN5-TOMBAK is well suited for high performance industrial networking applications. Drivers are available for all major operation systems.
