General description of the SmartNICs

The Napatech SmartNICs as well as the Intel® Programmable Acceleration Card with Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGA running Napatech Link-Capture™ Software are intelligent SmartNICs with HW-accelerated 2 × 100 Gbit/s, 1 × 100 Gbit/s, 2 × 40 Gbit/s, 1 × 40 Gbit/s, 4 × 25/10 Gbit/s, 2 × 25/10 Gbit/s, 8 × 10 Gbit/s, 4 × 10 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 available interfaces on the different HW models of the SmartNICs.
