Network interface card (NIC)

Network Interface Card (NIC) design resources and block diagram


Our integrated circuits and reference designs help you create network interface cards (NICs) that enable efficient, high-speed data transmission without loss of signal quality. Use the interactive diagram below to design any type of NIC, from basic to programmable, to create the backbone of the data center.

Today’s NIC designs require:

  • Advanced programmability
  • Low signal loss
  • Multiple interface communication protocols, including Ethernet and Wi-Fi, for wired and wireless connections
