PCI-X Quad Port
10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet Card

by AEI Intelligent Technologies

AEI Intelligent Technologies' PCI-X quad port 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet card (AEI-1400C) is designed to deliver high performance, and high reliability for demanding applications, as well as legacy Fast Ethernet connectivity.  It provides a full-duplex Gigabit Ethernet connection on a Universal Short Card. The Gigabit Ethernet interfaces provides unparalleled server throughput that helps reduce administrative complexity by replacing multiple slower interface cards with a single Gigabit adapter.  

AEI's adapters are the perfect solution for a cost effective, instant performance boost over existing Category 5 UTP copper cabling.  It also offers scalability for those contemplating future upgrades to Gigabit technology.

Design Characteristics
The AEI-1400C supports and auto-negotiates between 32/64-bit, and 33/66/100/133 MHz datapaths. Built with PCI-X technology, the AEI-1400C supports standard PCI 2.1 and 2.2 specifications, and also PCI-X motherboards for clock speeds into the 133 MHz range.  It is uniquely designed with integrated magnetics, low profile surface mount resistors and capacitors, high precision oscillator, and other high-end discrete components.  The result is a card that is highly reliable, resistant to damage, fault tolerant, and performance that is unparalleled.  The AEI-1400C is fully interoperable with existing Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet hubs, switches and routers.   


PCI Hot-Plug
The AEI-1400C supports PCI Hot-plug for IBM, Compaq, Dell and Microsoft platforms.

Boot ROM Support
AEI designs its server class Gigabit adapters with Boot ROM support, and offers embedded programming services (no charge) for all popular operating systems.  Thus, OEMs can utilize distribution servers to ease installation, and provide seamless integration of the AEI-1400C into its designs.

Jumbo Frame
The Gigabit adapter is configurable to support Jumbo Frame (9KB)

Advanced Server Features
AEI's Gigabit adapters utilize the popular Intel 82546 chipset, which comes with numerous advance server features built into its architecture. Hardware acceleration offloads tasks from the host processor including TCP/UDP/IP checksum calculations and TCP segmentation.  Link aggregation, failover, and load balancing are offered, and the adapter is also fully compliant with Gigabit EthernetChannel and Fast EtherChannel trunking algorithms.   (switch dependant 802.3ad (LACP) )
