GigMAC PMC, Model 5161

DSS Network's GigMAC PMC Model 5161 is a high performance Gigabit Ethernet controller card for embedded applications in broadband telecommunication and data communications networks. It provides a single port 1000 Base-T copper connection over CAT5 cabling and is fully IEEE 802.3 compliant.

It uses an advanced 4th generation, high-performance, low power gigabit ethernet chipset from National Semiconductor including a new ultra low power gigabit transceiver. It provides an onboard intelligent DMA engine and supports wire-speed bus-master DMA operations utilizing maximum PCI bandwidth. Its 64-bit PMC card design makes it a drop-in interface in both CompactPCI and embedded mezzanine controller environments.

The GigMAC PMC Model 5161 is an ideal solution for today's converged, bandwidth intensive, multi-protocol networks. Applications include switches, edge routers, media gateways, broadcast transmission, digital video and audio, streaming media, internet voice, network security and monitoring, storage area networks and digital imaging products.

This product is available with an OEM Developer Kit containing VxWorks (5.4/5.5), Linux (2.4/2.6) and Windows (2000, XP) device drivers, sample code, utilities, release notes, user manuals, integration guide and datasheets.
