Feature rich state of the art high-speed Dual 10GbE XMC card
Merritt Island, FL. – January 6, 2014 – Rigel Engineering introduces the XC5000 Dual 10GbE card. A powerful, high-speed, dual-port, 10 Gigabit Ethernet interconnect solution for any XMC platform. The model XC5000 provides two full-speed and fully independent 10GbE ports. Each port supports 10GBASE-LR, 10GBASE-SR or 10GSFP+Cu connectivity using universal SFP+ cages on the front panel or optional XAUI, CX4 or KX4 to the backplane.
“The XC5000’s flexibility and state of the art design make it ideal for high-speed peer-to-peer communication applications”, says Craig DeHaan, CTO of Rigel Engineering. “It is an enabling product in a market that is continually striving to reduce size, weight and power, yet increase capability.”
The XC5000 features Intel’s 3rd generation Dual-port 10GbE controller, the 82599ES. The XC5000 utilizes the 82599ES controller interfaced to the processor through a single x8 lane PCI Express port. It will auto-negotiate to a reduced number of PCIe lanes if necessary. The 82599ES controller is capable of negotiating the PCIe lanes down to x4, x2 or x1. The 82599ES employs the latest in Intel’s Virtualization Technology for Connectivity (VT-c) to streamline intelligent offloads and storage over Ethernet applications.
