Tehuti Networks has revealed what it describes as the industry's smallest 10GbE adapter with integrated 10GBase-T support. Geared to support high-volume OEM systems such as low-end servers and storage systems, and high-performance desktop applications, the TN9210 network adapter offers a low-power, small form factor and low-cost 10GbE solution enabling 10GBase-T connectivity, noted the company.

The TN9210 hosts the latest Tehuti TN4010 controller, an optimised 10GbE controller designed for low-power, low-cost, single-port applications required in application servers, high-end workstations and PCs. The TN4010 MAC is paired with the Marvell Alaska 88X3120 transceiver, a single-port, low-power, high-performance 10GbE PHY, to enable tri-speed connectivity (10GBase-T, 1000Base-T and 100Base-TX) over low-cost standard CAT-6a Ethernet cabling, supporting up to 100m. (Cat-5e and CAT-6 are supported compliant to link segment specifications).

The network adapter features Tri-speed 10G/1G/100MBase-T with full backward compatibility with existing 1000Base-T networks, 10Gb performance in a low-profile PCIe form factor PCIe Gen-2 x4 host bus interface and less than 5W worst-case power consumption. It also supports wake-on-LAN and Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), 16K jumbo frames and IP, TCP, UDP checksum offloading. Additionally, the network adapter boasts virtual NIC support, reduced CPU utilisation and improved throughput, standard CAT-6a cabling with RJ45 connectors, and drivers for Windows, Linux and VMware.

The TN9210 adapter reference design is available for evaluation by OEMs. Full schematic, layout and BOM are available for qualified customers.
