Ethernet Controller Silicon - NetXtreme

Broadcom Ethernet controllers are designed for the high bandwidth and flexibility demands of enterprise applications with storage protocol (Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and iSCSI) offloads, more scalable virtualization, support for RDMA* over Converged Ethernet (RoCE*) fabric, enhanced Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV), Network Interface Card (NIC) port partitioning, and cloud optimization using overlay networking technology.

We offer converged network interface controllers (C-NICs) for LAN on motherboard (LOM) applications as well as field-proven Ethernet controllers that consistently outperform competitive solutions. Broadcom NetXtreme™ and NetXtreme II C-NICs integrate the media access controller (MAC) and transceiver into a single-chip solution, and include support for the industry standard PCI, PCI-X and PCI-Express local bus interfaces for improved throughput.

*RoCE/RDMA functionality is only available as a technical preview and is not intended for a production environment
