Management controller compliance with the NC-SI specification requires a reduced media independent interface capable Ethernet MAC, which is realized in this solution by simply including Actel's Core10/100 Ethernet MAC DirectCore in the FPGA design.
Broadcom's BCM5221 single-port 10BaseT/100Base-TX transceiver is also available to connect directly to a system management processor compatible with the DMTF NC-SI specifications.
He also co- chaired the DMTF's NC-SI (Network Controller Sideband Interface) working group that focused on the electrical and protocol standards for the hardware interface between network and management controllers.
