PCI 4-Port 10/100 Quad Fast Ethernet, 32-bit

The AEI-P430C Quad Fast Ethernet (QFE) card is based on the popular Intel 82559 Ethernet Controller chipset.  The device driver is embedded into many operating systems, and hence plug and play in Windows, Linux, and other operating systems. 

Firewalls and application servers on Fast Ethernet networks can now get the bandwidth they need with the P430C Quadport PCI network interface card. This high-performance card can support four separate 10/100 Mbps copper network segments at full bandwidth.



Unlike many "server class" adapters on the market today, the P430C was designed for cross platform. This means additional noise impedance has been engineered into the board.  The P430C has a clean design, high precision oscillator, integrated magnetics, high-end surface mount discrete components, and additional filtering.  The cumulative effect is a card that is high performance, highly reliable, and fault tolerant. Subsequently, it provides a much higher return on investment when compared to the competition.


The P430C is provided with universal keying to support either 3.3V or 5V systems. 


The P430C is fully interoperable with existing Ethernet hubs, switches and routers.  AEI Fast Ethernet cards provided increased bandwidth for event the most congested network.
