ANIC-4KL Datasheet [pdf]

Host CPU Offload Features [pdf]








The ANIC-4KL is a low cost, 4 port GbE PCIe Card designed for Host CPU offload in Network Monitoring and Precise Time Stamping applications.

The product is based on Accolade’s Advanced Packet Processor (APP) which features a scalable, pipelined architecture implemented in a state-of-the-art FPGA. The APP design allows for seamless integration of custom packet processing algorithms.

Firmware support includes Packet Capture with Precise Time Stamping and Application Timing using the Precise Time Stamping DoorBell (TSDB) Option. Software Support includes a Comprehensive API and a Linux Driver.
