The SN3-GONG is a peripheral slot card for CompactPCI® Serial systems. The board is equipped with an Intel® X540 10GBASE-T Ethernet controller, and two RJ45 front panel jacks for attachment of Cat 6 or Cat 6A cables up to 100m length. The ability to auto-negotiate between 100Mbps, 1Gbps, and 10Gbps speeds provides the backwards compatibility for a smooth transition and easy migration to 10GbE. The X540 is based on PCI Express® 2.1 (up to 5GT/s) and supports x1, x2, x4 and x8 link widths. For optimum performance, the SN3-GONG should be installed in a CompactPCI® Serial fat pipe slot.
The SN3-GONG is well suited for high performance industrial networking applications. Drivers are available for all major operation systems.
