ENTERPRISE CLIENT PCs TO SCALE TO 10GBE

Aquantia's game changing technology allows enterprise systems,
SMB networks, and gaming applications to evolve beyond
1 Gbps to 10 Gbps, 5 Gbps, and 2.5 Gbps data rates.

AQtionTM AQC107

The Aquantia® AQC107 is a high-performance, PCIe to multi-gigabit (10GBASE-T/ 5GBASE-T/2.5GBASE-T/1000BASE-T/100BASE-TX) Ethernet Controller. With a x4/x2/x1 PCI Express Gen3 or Gen2 interface, the AQtion Ethernet controller easily handles the 10 GbE line-rate performance. AQC107 incorporates Aquantia’s AQrate® PHY technology which delivers 10 GbE network connectivity speed through 100 meters of Cat 6a cabling enabling higher data rates with zero change to legacy cabling.

AQC107 is compatible with both the IEEE® 802.3 an/bz standard and the NBASE-TTM Alliance PHY Specification to perform all the functions required to implement 10GBASE-T/5GBASE-T/2.5GBASE-T/1000BASE-T/100BASE-TX transmission. The AQC107 integrates such features as Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), Media Access Control Security (MACsec), and delivers wire-speed performance at all supported speeds.
