TN9210: Triple-speed 10GBase-T Network Adapter Card

Low Cost, Low Power, 10 Gigabit performances

With only 4.95 Watts maximum power consumption (full duplex to 100 meters), the TN9210 offers the lowest power consumption and the best cost solution in the market today. For high-end Workstations and low cost Application Servers, which seek to service the increasing demand of higher network bandwidth, while maintaining backward compatibility with existing Ethernet infrastructure.


The TN9210 reference design Network Adapter hosts the Tehuti's new 3rd g eneration T N4010 c ontroller, a n optimized 10 Gigabit Ethernet MAC designed for low-power, low-cost, single-port connectivity required by Application Servers and Workstations. The TN4010 MAC is paired with the Marvell® Alaska® 88X3120 transceiver, a low-power, high-performance 10 Gigabit Ethernet PHY, to enable tri-speed connectivity (10GBase-T, 1000Base-T, and 100Base-TX) over low-cost standard CAT-6a Ethernet cabling, up to 100m (Cat-5e and CAT-6 are supported compliant to Link Segment specifications). This combination creates a new gateway to cost-conscious consumer applications, as well as to intensive data environments.
