CompactPCI® Express • 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller

Dual Port SFP+

The EN9-SONIC is a peripheral slot board for CompactPCI® Express and PXI Express™ systems, 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 up to 10km length via SFP+ transceivers, or SFP+ twinaxial copper cables.
The Intel® 82599ES Ethernet NIC is known for its high performance and reliability. Intel® networking drivers are available for all major operating systems.

The EN9-SONIC must be installed into a suitable peripheral slot e.g. Type 1 or Type 2 of a CompactPCI® Express (PXI Express™) backplane. The optimum performance can be achieved over a PCIe® Gen2 x8 link (XJ3 connector).
The EN9-SONIC is a reliable solution for general industrial networking applications, e.g. as link from IOT/edge to server/cloud, or attachment of storage systems (NAS), and can also be used as router/gateway.
