NetXtreme® Gigabit Ethernet Controller for Desktops

The Broadcom® BCM5751 is one of three NetXtreme™ Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) controllers that implement the advanced PCI Express host interface. Representing the world's first support for the PCI Express specification, the BCM5751 is designed for use with desktop and workstation PCs and has been optimized to provide the industry's best price and performance combination. The BCM5751 provides significant advances in client manageability by adding support for the Alerting Standards Forum (ASF) 2.0 specification. This provides IT professionals with automatic alerts when support issues occur and allows them to remotely address these concerns.

Built upon six generations of field-proven Gigabit Ethernet media access controller (MAC) and physical layer (PHY) transceiver technology, the BCM5751 utilizes a fully integrated 10/100/1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet MAC, PCI Express bus interface, on-chip buffer memory, and integrated PHY in a single-chip solution designed specifically for LAN on motherboard (LOM) and network interface card (NIC) applications. This single chip solution is fabricated in a low-voltage, 0.13-micron CMOS process that provides low power consumption.

The BCM5751 features a comprehensive software suite offering a complete solution for client and server applications, including drivers for all popular operating systems. The NetXtreme architecture also features a unique processor-based design, enabling advanced management software to run in firmware so it can be remotely upgraded via simple downloads.
