Network interface

Characteristic Description
IEEE standard

IEEE 802.3 100 Gbit/s Ethernet

IEEE 802.3 40 Gbit/s Ethernet

IEEE 802.3 25 Gbit/s Ethernet

IEEE 802.3 10 Gbit/s Ethernet

Type of physical interface QSFP28
Number of physical interfaces 2 ports
Supported pluggable modules

QSFP28

QSFP+

SFP28

SFP+

Note: Which of the supported modules are relevant depends on the link speeds supported by software (see Step 7).
Note: QSFP+ 40GBASE-PSM4 can break out to 4 SFP+ 10GBASE-LR.
Note: QSFP+ 40GBASE-SR4 can break out to 4 SFP+ 10GBASE-SR.
Note: QSFP+ 40GBASE-CR4 can break out to 4 SFP+ 10GBASE-CR.
Note: QSFP+ 40GBASE-LR4 pluggables cannot be used with breakout cables, as they interface to single-mode fibers where the four 10 Gbit/s lanes are multiplexed and therefore do not allow mechanical breakout.
Note: SFP28 and SFP+ pluggables can only be used together with a pluggable module adapter (PMA) enabling SFP28 and SFP+ modules to be plugged into a QSFP28 port.

Power is measured with capture of a stream with 80% load of 300-byte frames. A sustaining load of 80% with 300-byte frames is representative for maximum real-life scenario. The actual power consumption depends on the FPGA software payload.

The SmartNIC is Class III equipment for supply by SELV circuits only.

Port numbers

Characteristic Description
