LeWiz Unleashing a Powerful Family of Multi-port, 10G
San Jose, CA (August 4, 2005) - Utilizing its second generation
TOE ASIC, LeWiz Communications releases a family of TCP/IP offload
engine (TOE) products scalable from Gigabit to 10 Gigabit performance
for server, storage and security systems. This new family comprises
of 3 TOE cards – the Magic2028-2p with dual GigE ports
in a low profile PCI-X form, the Magic2028-4p with 4 GigE ports
in PCI-X short form, and the Magic2028-10G with a 10 Gigabit
port supporting either CX-4 copper or SR/LR Fiber. These products
covers a spectrum of 4Gbps to 10Gbps speeds with full TCP/IP
offload for the system CPUs making them ideal for the Web serving,
or iSCSI and NAS storage applications.

This second generation is built on the solid foundation of LeWiz’s previous
generation of TOE ASIC which had been through certified testings
and deployed in the market place. It employs the same low-power,
hardware based architecture but offers higher performance, less
board space, and more ports. With both the low power and small
space features this product line is well suited for heat sensitive
environment of 1U or blade servers. Its scalability allows the
same software to be used for Gigabit to 10 Gigabit applications
– making it easy for deployment and reduces development
time and cost. Its loadable software device drivers come with
the standard TCP/IP socket layer making the whole family compatible
with any existing software applications. The multiple independent
ports allow users to implement fail-over fault-tolerant or bonding
together to achieve the high transfer rates.
“These 2nd generation products are reliable, high performance, low power,
and easy to use across the spectrum of networking speeds. It
has an amazing architecture, so compact that you can build a
dual Gigabit port implementation in half the size of a credit
card with full TCP/IP offload”, said with full excitement,
Chinh Le CEO of LeWiz Communications.
Various versions of 32-bit Linux drivers (Redhat and SuSE) are available with
this product family. 64-bit drivers and Windows support to be
followed. Production volume of the Magic2028 TOE NICs will be
available in September 2005.
LeWiz will be showing its Magic2028 family, the Talon3008™ 4-port PCI-express
board, and Magic2020™ TOE HBA at the Linux World Conference
Booth #561 in San Francisco, August 8-11, 2005.
