The D-Link DFE-530TX is an IEEE 802.3 10/100Mbps compliant Fast Ethernet adapter especially designed for PCI bus computers. The D-Link DFE-530TX supports both 100Base-TX two-pair category 5 UTP cable and 10Base-T categories 3, 4, or 5 UTP cable connections. It also operates with full duplex, doubling the network speed to 20/200Mbps.
Utilizing the Plug and Play features, the DFE-530TX adapter is fully self-configurable for easy installation. Three on-face LEDs indicate speed, link, and activity.
The D-Link DFE-530TX, with its PCI 32-bit data bus, can deliver high throughput without the need for onboard memory. The 10/100Mbps MAC controller has sufficient FIFO memory built in for receive/transmit packet buffering, along with PCI bus mastering. The DFE-530TX can be lower PCI bus use and free the CPU for other bus-intensive applications.
