PCIE Server NIC card Application

  • PCI-E NIC Cards provide redundant connectivity to ensure an uninterrupted network connection.

  • PCI-E NIC Cards are ideal for VM environments with multiple operating systems, requiring shared or dedicated NICs.

  • They are specially designed for desktop PC clients, servers, and workstations with few PCI Express slots available.

10Gb Ethernet-SR PCI-X 2.0 DDR Adapter Overview


The IBM 10Gb Ethernet-SR PCI-X 2.0 DDR Adapter is designed to provide a PCI-X based server connection. The adapter conforms to the IEEE 802.3ae 10 Gigabit Ethernet standard and supports jumbo frames.


The 10 Gb Ethernet-SR PCI-X supports the following distances:

Up to 33 m by using 62.5 um multimode fiber with 200 MHz*km minimum modal bandwidth at 850 nm

Up to 300 m by using 50 um multimode fiber with 2000 MHz*km minimum modal bandwidth at 850 nm

The adapter is designed to run in standard PCI-X v2.0 and PCI-X v1.0a compliant systems with 64 bit PCI-X BusMaster slots at 133 Mode 1 or Mode 2. The adapter draws power from the PCI-X 3.3 V supplies and is keyed to fit only into a 3.3 V slot. The adapter supports 1M x 8 bit boot FLASH ROM and has a 240 KB on-chip TX packet buffer and a 32 MB on-chip RX packet buffer.


The FRU part numbers for the adapter are:

Adapter, 03N4590 (Designed to comply with RoHS requirement.)

Wrap plug, 11P3847


The adapter provides the following features:

Single-slot, short form factor, 6.6 by 4.2 inch, half-length PCI cards

64 bit Direct Bus Mastering on the PCI-X bus

Dual Address Cycle for access to 64 bit addresses

PCI-X split transactions

DMA engine for movement of command, status, and network data across PCI-X

240 KB on-chip TX packet buffer

32 MB on-chip RX packet buffer

1 MB Boot Flash ROM

Jumbo frames (9 KB)

Interrupts coalescing

802.1q VLAN tagging and stripping (IBM® System i® models do not support VLANs)

Conforms to IEEE 802.3ae 10 Gigabit Ethernet standard


The 10 Gigabit Ethernet-SR PCI-X 2.0 DDR adapter requires the following hardware:

A wrap plug for the multimode fiber connector, if you are running the total diagnostics package

Shortwave (850 nm) 50/62.5 micron multimode fiber network attachment

The following table indicates the allowable cable lengths from the adapter to the gigabit Ethernet switch, including patch cables:

How to connect the adapter to the multimode fiber network? See your local procedures for information about connecting the adapter to your Ethernet network.

Note: Only one type of network can be attached to the adapter at one time.

To connect the adapter to a multimode fiber network, do the following steps:

1. Insert the male fiber LC connector of the fiber cable into the adapter LC connector.

2. Insert the male fiber LC connector of the other end of the cable into the network switch.


If your switch has an SC receptacle, you need an LC-SC converter cable.

It is necessary to configure an IP network interface to enable the adapter to detect link and illuminate the LINK LED.



The LEDs on the adapter provide information about the operation status of the adapter. The LEDs are visible through the mounting bracket of the adapter and, when lit, indicate the following conditions:
