DN1-PIKE XMC Mezzanine Module

Quad-Port Gigabit Ethernet Controller

The DN1-PIKE is a is a XMC standard single-width mezzanine card, equipped with four individual 1000Mbps Ethernet controllers. All ports are available via low profile RJ45 front bezel jacks. The Intel® I211 (option I210-IT) Ethernet NICs provide latest networking technology, e.g. power management for increased efficiency and Audio-Video Bridging (AVB) for tightly controlled media stream synchronisation, buffering, and reservation.

The on-board PCI Express® packet switch is a flexible interface between one to four PCI Express® lanes, derived from the XMC connector P15 (upstream link), and the GbE NICs (single lane downstream links). The optimum performance can be achieved with a PCIe x 4 link established to the XMC carrier.

Intel® I211/I210 networking drivers are available for all major operating systems.
