Product Introduction
Dolphin Item #: FASTPCI-6012 

10/100/1000Mbps GigaNIC PCI Ethernet Adapter Card

This 32-bit PCI-bus GigaNIC Ethernet Adapter is designed to maximize the latest and fastest 1000BASE-TX networks. The PCI Local Bus delivers higher data throughput that eliminates I/O bottlenecks, making it far superior to ISA and EISA bus architectures. 

The PCI Adapter supports 10 to 2000Mbps data transfer rates, at half or full duplex configuration. It uses built-in auto-negotiation to automatically detect and set the optimal interoperation mode with other network devices. Also included are LED status indicators that help users monitor network activity, port link, and data transfer rate.
