Napatech ( has introduced
a new member to their NT4 family of four-port 1
Gbps Ethernet network adapters for PCI-Express.
The new adapter is named NT4E-STD and is an
enhanced PCI-Express version of the Napatech XD
adapter for PCI-X.

The NT4E-STD provides 4 x 1 Gbps Ethernet ports,
doubling the number of interfaces currently
provided by the XD Adapter. The NT4E-STD also
provides complete RMON1 standard support,
allowing full off-load of statistics collection
from host CPUs. In addition to PCI-Express and
RMON1 support, the NT4E-STD provides a number of
additional enhancements to the XD feature set:

° Support for 4 x 1 Gbps ports both electrical RJ45 and Optical SFP versions;

° Support for additional DDR2 RAM for data burst buffering up to 4GB;

° Fixed Slicing functionality for payload discard;

° Support for multiple CPU cores via 1, 2, 3 or 4
host buffers with individual statistics.

The NT4E-STD uses the same API (application
programming interfaces) and programming
interfaces as Napatech’s other adapter products.
