PMC695TX is an intelligent 1000BaseT Gigabit Ethernet NIC that sets a new standard for high performance data exchange. One 1000Mbit Ethernet controller ) is combined with a local RISC processor and PCI bridge system. The result is a very high performance, extremely flexible solution to a variety of data transfer requirements. Designed using standard protocols (1000Mbit Ethernet and PCI/PMC), the PMC695TX is intrinsically economical, both in terms of direct unit cost and ability to utilize commodity LAN hubs and switches. In addition, card edge PCI systems can be accommodated using our PMC239 adapter for rapid prototype and development. The on-board RISC processor allows the PMC695TX to be used in a wide range of applications. In the simplest mode, all control can be kept in the system host. Our embedded TCP/IP allows the host to off-load the TCP/IP overhead to the local I/O co-processor. The local processor has dedicated 64 MBytes of DDR SDRAM as well as 8 Mbytes of Flash. Users can add application-specific functionality to the on-board firmware, migrating appropriate control into the PMC695TX.
