DSS Network's GigMAC PCI Model 6161 is a high performance Gigabit Ethernet controller for embedded applications in broadband data and telecommunication networks. It provides a single port 1000 Base-T copper connection over CAT5 cabling and is fully IEEE 802.3 compliant.

The card's small form factor, low-profile 64-bit PCI design conforms to the PCI low profile specification and allows it to be used in both embedded and rackmount server chassis. It uses an advanced 4th generation, high-performance, low power Gigabit Ethernet controller from National Semiconductor and a Broadcom BCM5421S transceiver that supports both copper and fiber media. It has an onboard intelligent DMA engine and supports wire-speed bus-master DMA operations utilizing maximum PCI bandwidth.

It is an ideal solution for today's converged, bandwidth intensive, multi-protocol networks. Applications include switches, edge routers, media gateways, digital video transmission, streaming media, VoIP, network storage, data centers, eSecurity, network monitoring, test equipment and scientific / military products.
