Model 5164

DSS Network's GigMAC PMC Model 5164 is a quad-port high performance gigabit ethernet controller card for embedded applications in broadband telecommunication and data communications networks. It provides four fully independent 1000 Base T gigabit ethernet ports over CAT5 cabling and is fully IEEE 802.3 compliant.

It uses an advanced 4th generation, high-performance, low power gigabit ethernet mac-phy chip from Intel. It provides an onboard intelligent PCI-X based DMA engine and supports wire-speed 64-bit bus-master DMA operations utilizing maximum PCI bandwidth.

The GigMAC PMC Model 5164 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 (5.4/5.5/6.x), Linux (2.4/2.6) and Windows (2000, XP) device drivers, sample code, utilities, release notes, user manuals, integration guide and datasheets.
