The Alloy-1440STR is a ruggedised 100Mbps PCI fibre optic network card designed for high reliability managed fibre networks. The adapter is compliant to PCI 2.2 and will support PCI buses with either 5V, 3.3V or dual voltage standard PCI, 64Bit PCI or PCI-X slots. The Alloy-1440 uses a low profile PCB and is supplied with both full height and low profile (half height) brackets to ensure support for the vast majority of workstations and servers.
The Alloy-1440 is based on the Via 6105M Rhine chipset which provides Advanced Management and Power Conservation Features. The Via Rhine Chipset enables configuration of advanced features such as Priority Queuing to increase multimedia transfer speeds, VLAN tagging for security, TCP/UDP checksum offloading from the host CPU and adaptive interrupt handling to handle heavy network loads more efficiently.
Advanced power management features include low power consumption from the 0.22 micron designed Via 6105M controller. The adapter also supports a remote BootROM socket which can be use with an optional PXE rom for remote booting from Windows based RIS servers. Wake on LAN (WoL) support is provided via the PCI bus as per PCI 2.2 specification, or via a provide cable for motherboards of PCI 2.1 or older specification.
