Sierra 42284

Quad port Ethernet NIC with bypass PCI-e server adapter card
  • 1G SFP
  • Fiber
  • Intel 82580

Sierra 42284 is a quad port Gigabit Ethernet server adapter, built on Intel’s 82580 Gigabit technology and designed with a built-in programmable bypass circuit to provide maximum uptime for the network. The bypass circuit takes the Sierra 42284 ports offline in case of either power or software failure. The bypass circuit works in absence of power.

Sierra 42284 is designed to integrate with PCI Express compatible servers and high-end appliances providing high speed networking and bypass/failover capabilities for any mission-critical application.

  • Intel 82580EB quad MAC and PHY controller
  • Peak bandwidth 5 Gb/s in each direction per PCI Express lane
  • 8 Gigabit per second of traffic when fully utilized
  • PCI-e x 4 (Gen 2.0) compatible
  • Multi-mode Fiber (SX), single-mode Fiber (LX)
  • Full height form factor
  • Passive bypass which is essential during power loss or software failure
  • Link Fault Detection (LFD) support
  • Programmable “Fail-Closed” or “Fail-Open” while in the power-off state
  • Programmable independent mode to function as a dual port gigabit copper card
  • Integrated PHY for full and half-duplex 10/100/1000 Base-T support
  • TCP/UDP/IP checksum offload and TCP segmentation
  • IEEE 802.1q, 802.3ab, 802.3u, 802.3x compliant
  • Layer 2, 3 and 4 advanced packet filtering capabilities (IPv4, IPv6)
  • Efficient form factor – 6.7 in length and 4.2 in height
  • Low power consumption (13 watts maximum power)
  • Full RoHS compliance
  • FCC Class A and CE certification
