Broadcom NICs Now Supported by Emergent Software on Linux

127.7 MP 25GigE Camera

Emergent Vision Technologies is pleased to announce that its eCapture Pro and eSDK software products now support the dual-port 100G P2100G and quad-port 25/10G network interface cards (NICs) on the Linux operating system. Both NICs are RDMA-ready and support Emergent’s renowned zero-copy imaging technique, which enables efficient image transfer with minimal CPU overhead, a crucial capability for multi-camera setups and real-time processing.

Based on Broadcom’s scalable 10/25/50/100/200G Ethernet controller architecture, the P425G NIC includes a PCIe Gen4 x16 host connector, an SFP28 connector, four ports, and RoCEv2 support. The P2100G is based on the same architecture, offering a PCIe Gen4 x16 host connector, a QSFP56 connector, two ports, and RoCEv2 support. Users can expect performance comparable to the NVIDIA Mellanox NICs that Emergent already supports.
