Smart NIC 7890 Dual 40GE


Coming Soon3

Product Overview

A PCIe Gen3.0 Smart Network Accelerator supporting Dual 40
GE interfaces. The board incorporates the state of the art Cavium OCTEON® III 7890 processor.

The smart Network Accelerator’s primary purpose is to offload x86 server processors to maintain data throughput and enhance efficiency. The board can be used as an offload engine for deep packet inspection and analysis, content inspection and protection, and crypto engine to accelerate SSL and IPsec.

The board incorporates the Rhino Health Monitoring (RHM) tool, providing continuous monitoring of CPU cores, board peripherals, and host processor via heartbeats, voltage, and temperature checkpoints.
