Intel® Ethernet Controller I210 Family is a low-power, small-footprint, single-port gigabit network controller with support for IEEE 802.1Qav Audio-Video Bridgeing for Desktop, Server and Embedded applications.
The Intel Ethernet Controller I210 Family provides and ideal GbE solution for customers looking for a full featured GIgabit Ethernet Media Access Control and Physical Layer for Desktop, Server, and Embedded Applications. The Intel Ethernet Controller I210 Familty supports advanced features such as Audio-Video Bridding, IEEE 802.1AS Precision Time Stamping, Error Correcting Code, Packet Biffers, and Enhanced Management Interface options.
Single port controllers use a PCIe c2.1 one lane (x1) interface operating at 2.5GT/s. The Intel Ethernet Controller I210 Family provides fully integrated GbE MAC/PHY capabilities that can be configured for either 1000 Mb/s of 10/100 Mb/s modes of operation. The Intel Ethernet Controller I210 Family enables a quick migration from custom interconnects to Ethernet.
The Intel Ethernet Controller I210 Family contains four transmit and four receive queues for the single port. These queues offer Error Correcting Memory protection for improved data reliability. The controller efficiently manages packets with minimum latency by combining parallel and pipelined logic architectures optimized for these indipendent transmit and receiving queues.
