The Intel XL710 Ethernet Controller provides high-performance network connectivity with advanced off-load and virtualization capabilities. Two models are available.

The air-cooled XMC631 model has four SFP+ connectors on the front panel for fiber optic or copper media transceivers. The rear I/O model XMC632 routes two XAUI interfaces to the P16 connector and is compatible with conduction-cooling frames.

Optional VITA 61 connectors enable PCI Express 3.0 data rates across eight high-speed serial lanes on the XMC P15 connector. Designed for COTS applications, these XMC modules are ideal for use in defense, aerospace, industrial, and scientific research computing systems. Extended temperature operation is supported for -40 to 85°C.

“Using the latest Intel Ethernet Controller technologies, we can help customers rapidly move data between systems," stated Robert Greenfield, Acromag’s Business Development Manager.

Employing Intel’s advanced XL710 4-port 10-gigabit Ethernet controller, these XMC modules optimize network performance with intelligent off-loading, innovative virtualization, and advanced traffic direction.

When paired with a Xeon-D processor, the two Intel devices provide a balanced hybrid solution of compute and off-load to achieve optimal performance and reduce bottlenecks.

The four SFP+ ports support 10GBASE-SR, 10GBASE-LR, 10GBASE-T and 10GSFP+Cu connections. In rugged systems, the dual XAUI interface offers low-cost, low-power 10 GbE chip-to-chip communication over the backplane. Software support is available for Linux and Windows systems.
