Dual 10GbE port card for PCIe/104 and PCI/104-Express

Rigel’s PC5005 Dual 10GbE card addresses the next generation high-speed connectivity and network security requirements for PCIe/104 and PCI/104-Express systems.

PCI/104-Express Card | PC5005

The PC5005 provides exceptional small packet performance, advanced network security and reliability while the low-power adapter’s TDP is 8W (typical).

The PC5005 features Intel’s next generation 10GbE controller XL710. The XL710 interfaces to the host processor through a single x8 lane PCI Express generation 3 port. It will auto-negotiate to a reduced number of PCIe lanes  or Gen 2 or 1 speed if necessary. The XL710 controller is capable of auto-negotiating down to x4 or x1 PCIe lanes.



The PC5005’s flexibility and state of the art design make it ideal for high-speed peer-to-peer communication applications among many others that require blazing performance.

Power-driven by Intel’s XL710 Ethernet Controller. The XL710 employs the latest in Intel’s Virtualization Technology for Connectivity (VT-c) such as On-Chip QoS and Traffic Management, Flexible Port Partitioning, Virtual Machine Device Queues (VMDq) and PCI-SIG* SR-IOV Capable.
