EKF introduces the DN3-SHARK, an XMC standard mezzanine card, equipped with a dual port 10Gbps Ethernet controller. Both ports are available via SFP+ front bezel connector cages, suitable for attachment of either optical cables via SFP+ transceivers or SFP+ twinaxial copper cables. The Intel® 82599ES Ethernet NIC is known for its high performance, low latency, reliability, and flexibility.
The DN3-SHARK is backward compatible to 1Gbps and 100Mbps speeds. The optimum performance can be achieved with a Gen2 PCIe x 8 link established to the XMC carrier. Intel® networking drivers are available for all major operating systems. The DN3-SHARK is a perfect solution for applications with demand for high throughput industrial networking.
