Intel® 82599 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller Family

Intel’s third-generation 10 GbE controller, the Intel® 82599 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller continues to build on the innovative trends set by its predecessor. The Intel 82599 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller is a single-chip, dual-port 10 GbE implementation in a 25x25 mm package. It reduces bill of materials (BOM) cost and design complexity by integrating serial 10 GbE PHYs and provides both simple firmware interface (SFI) and KR interface. The device is designed for high performance and lower memory latency. Wide internal data paths eliminate performance bottlenecks by efficiently handling large address and data words. With industry-leading power consumption, a small footprint, and integrated PHYs, the controller is ideally suited for server blades, LAN on motherboard (LOM), network interface card (NIC), and mezzanine card implementations.
