DiscTech Item #: SIL-PXG6I-NP-OE
Silicom PX-Series Server 6-port RoHS Gigabit adapter / Card / NIC - PXG6 - New Pull
The Silicom PX-Series Server Gigabit adapters are 64-bit/133MHz PCI-X network interface cards that contain multiple / single independent Gigabit port/s on one PCI-X adapter.
Silicom PX-Series Server adapters are based on the fourth generation of Broadcom BCM57XX PCI-X Gigabit Ethernet controllers that feature industry leading performance for PCI-X server Adapters.
Copper Gigabit Ethernet 1000Base-T:
• Independently copper Gigabit Ethernet channels support six, four, two and one Gigabit Ethernet (1000Base-T), Fast Ethernet (100Base-Tx) and Ethernet (10Base-T).
• Triple speed 1000Mbps (1000Base-T), 100 Mbps (100Base-Tx) and 10 Mbps (100Base-T) operation.
• Nway auto negotiation automatic sensing and switching between 1Gbps full duplex and 100 / 10 Mbps operations Simplex or Full Duplex.
• RJ-45 female connectors.
Common Key features:
• Host Interface standard support:
• PCI v2.2 32/64 bit, 33/66Mhz
• PCI-X v1.0 32/64-bit, 66/100/133MHz
• High performance, reliability, and low power use in Broadcom 5704 dual integrated MAC + PHY / SERDES chip controller.
• Ultra deep, 64 KB packet buffer per channel lowers CPU utilization, avoids PCI-X congestion
• Dual high speed RISC processor per channel for advanced packet classification.
• Hardware acceleration that can offload tasks from the host processor. The controllers can offload TCP/UDP/IP checksum calculations and TCP segmentation.
• Server class reliability, availability and performance features:
• Link Aggregation and Load Balancing:
• Switch dependent: 802.3ad (LACP), Generic Trunking ( GEC / FEC)
• Switch and NIC Independent.
• Priority queuing – 802.1p layer 2 priority encoding.
• Virtual LANs –802.1q VLAN tagging.
• Jumbo Frame (9KB).
• 802.x flow control.
• Boot ROM embedded or optional can be used for Boot ROM applications.
• PCI Power Management Interface. (v1.1)
• PCI Hot Plug. (IBM, Compaq, Dell, and Microsoft)
• Statistics for SNMP MIB II, Ethernet like MIB, and Ethernet MIB (802.3z, Clause 30)
• LEDs indicators for link/Activity/Speed status
The Silicom PXG6 has been verified by Sun to operate under Solaris 10 and Solaris 10 (64 Bit) operating systems.

The product has been mounted in a brand new system (e.g. server), then removed from the system, before entering service. These products may have a few hours of usage due to system build time etc. Ostensibly however, New Pulls are electronically new items, which may show signs of being physically mounted and unmounted. All handling is performed by trained technicians, taking full ESD precautions.
