For users of Napatech SmartNICs with third-generation architecture (also referred to as 3GA), please refer to the appropriate documentation relevant for Napatech 3GA SmartNICs.

Terminology

In this document the term NT80E3-2-PTP does not include NT80E3-2-PTP-8×10/2×40 SmartNICs. However, the term NT100E3-1-PTP includes NT100E3-1-PTP-NEBS SmartNICs, the term NT80E3-2-PTP includes NT80E3-2-PTP-NEBS SmartNICs, the term NT80E3-2-PTP-8×10/2×40 includes NT80E3-2-PTP-NEBS-8×10/2×40 SmartNICs, the term NT40E3-4-PTP includes NT40E3-4-PTP-NEBS SmartNICs, and the term NT20E3-2-PTP includes NT20E3-2-PTP-NEBS SmartNICs, except in contexts where the NEBS SmartNICs are also mentioned specifically.

Operating systems

The SmartNIC drivers support these operating systems:

  • Linux, 64-bit
  • Windows, 64-bit (only for NT SmartNICs)
