Quad 2.5GBASE-T Ethernet Networking Controllers RJ45 Front I/O

The SN9-CAPO is a peripheral card for CompactPCI® Serial systems, equipped with 2.5Gbps Ethernet ports for universal networking. Four Intel® I226-IT networking controllers are wired to RJ45 front panel connectors. The NICs can be operated individually at 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, 1000BASE-T and 2.5GBASE-T speed.

An on-board PCI Express® packet switch connects each I226-IT controller with the CompactPCI® Serial backplane connector P1. The SN9-CAPO fits into any peripheral slot which is PCI Express® enabled. For best performance a link width x4 slot is recommended (e.g. fat pipe slot).
