The PCI-730 is an Intelligent Gigabit Ethernet Controller that off-loads LAN protocol processing from the host processor. The PCI-730 expands system performance in advanced servers, video networking, voice over IP, embedded systems and other high-speed LAN applications. Tasks such as TCP/IP processing, firewalls, encryption and data compression can be off-loaded from host processors to the Intelligent PCI-730/733 Gigabit Ethernet Controller.
Optimized for I/O processing, the PCI-730 is powered by a 600 MHz 80310 Intel XScale Microarchitecture, 100 MHz SDRAM and dual 66 MHz, 64-bit PCI buses. The high bandwidth architecture opens I/O bottlenecks and provides maximum LAN performance.
In addition, the PCI-730 offers board support package for Tornado / VxWorks and embedded Linux. Cyclone's Breeze Development Environment T is on board to ease the development of embedded application code. With the combination of high bandwidth hardware and software development support, the PCI-730 can be rapidly integrated into demanding network applications.
