Napatech Link™ NT200A02 SmartNIC

8x10G/2x40G/2x100G

Data Sheet

Use cutting-edge network SmartNIC technology to add real-time line-rate performance to your application. The Link™ NT200A02 SmartNIC provides full packet capture of network data at 100 Gbps and of traffic bursts at 200 Gbps with zero packet loss. The SmartNIC can capture all frames, including erroneous frames normally discarded by standard NICs. The SmartNIC can also be used for 100% packet replay with nanosecond precision of all networking traffic for analytics, testing and simulation.

The 12GB DDR4 RAM buffer allows buffering packets on the SmartNIC to prevent packet loss during peak server loads. Packets are hardware time-stamped when they arrive at the network ports, ensuring that the time stamp is always reliable. The Napatech SmartNIC allows you to merge data from two ports into a single, time-ordered analysis stream. The compact form factor enables 8×10Gbps/2×40Gbps/2×100Gbps applications in 1U server platforms, saving rack space and reducing the overall cost of the solution. The SmartNIC also comes in a NEBS level 3 compliant variant.
