PMC677 is a fiber connected PMC designed to offer 1000Mbit full duplex Ethernet connectivity on four channels. This NIC uses LC connectors with 1000BaseSX transceivers. The Ethernet/PCI interface includes a powerful DMA engine with 64KB deep FIFO buffers. PMC677 has a rich suite of host off-loading feature including: Packet filtering based on checksum errors; SNMP and RMON statistic counters; Hardware TCP checksum off-loading; and Support for various address filtering modes such as 16 exact matches (unicast or multicast), 4096-bit hash filter for multicast frames and Promiscuous unicast and multicast. Software drivers are available for most popular operating systems including VxWorks, Linux, LynxOS, Windows NT, and Solaris. These drivers have been carefully designed and implemented to fit within the LAN protocol stack of the host operating system. All facilities available from the host OS can be used across the PMC677.
