Feature Description

In this document

This document describes the functionality and capabilities that are implemented for NT accelerators with Napatech Software Suite in feature set N-ANL9.

Note: This document refers to functionality provided by Napatech accelerators with fourth-generation architecture (also referred to as 4GA). For users of Napatech accelerators with third-generation architecture (also referred to as 3GA), please refer to the appropriate documentation relevant for Napatech 3GA accelerators.

Terminology

In this document the term NT100E3-1-PTP includes NT100E3-1-PTP-NEBS accelerators, the term NT80E3-2-PTP includes NT80E3-2-PTP-NEBS accelerators, the term NT40E3-4-PTP includes NT40E3-4-PTP-NEBS accelerators, and the term NT20E3-2-PTP includes NT20E3-2-PTP-NEBS accelerators, except in contexts where the NEBS accelerators are also mentioned specifically.

Operating systems

The NT accelerator drivers support these operating systems:

  • Linux, 64-bit
  • Windows, 64-bit

General description of the accelerators

The Napatech NT200A01-2×100/40, NT200A01-2×100, NT200A01-2×40, NT200C01-2×100, NT100E3-1-PTP, NT80E3-2-PTP, NT40E3-4-PTP, NT20E3-2-PTP and NT40A01-4×1 accelerators are intelligent accelerators with HW-accelerated 2 × 100 Gbit/s, 1 × 100 Gbit/s, 2 × 40 Gbit/s, 4 × 10/1 Gbit/s, 2 × 10/1 Gbit/s or 4 × 1 Gbit/s frame capturing, frame classification, filtering and high-precision time-stamping as the main features. This table shows the different models of the NT accelerators.
