10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet Controller with Integrated Transceiver
The BCM5701 is a fully integrated 10/100/1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet Media Access Control and Physical Layer Transceiver solution for high performance network applications. The BCM5701 is a fully integrated solution combining triple speed, IEEE 802.3 compliant Media Access Controller (MAC), PCI 2.2 and PCI-X 133MHz bus interfaces, deep on-chip buffer memory, and integrated physical layer transceiver in a single device. The BCM5701 is fabricated in a low-voltage 1.8um CMOS process providing a low-power system solution. By itself the BCM5701 provides a complete single-chip Gigabit Ethernet NIC or LOM solution.
The BCM5701 is based on Broadcom's earlier BCM5700 10/100/1000 PCI-X Controller featuring the industry's first support for the new PCI-X and the highest performance in terms of both throughput and CPU utilization:
The BCM5701 is driver compatible with the earlier BCM5700 making migration easier for IT Professionals that have already qualified the Server software suite.
