Product Brief Intel® 82566 Gigabit Network Connections Ethernet Controllers

Intel® 82566 Gigabit Network Connections High-performance Gigabit Network Connectivity with support for Intel® vPro™ technology and Intel® Viiv™ technology • Intel® 82566DM/DC Gigabit Network Connections are for desktop platforms • Intel® 82566MM/MC Gigabit Network Connections are for mobile platforms • High-performing, PCI Express*-based Gigabit Ethernet connection • Flexible board design options via shared LAN and BIOS Flash storage, 10/100 footprint compatibility (with the Intel® 82562V 10/100 Network Connection) and integrated voltage regulation circuitry • High quality and reliability with Intel’s world-class manufacturing and validation • Simple installation and maintenance with Intel® SingleDriver™ technology and Intel® Stable Image Platform Program (SIPP) Δ • Supports Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) † and Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel 82566DM/MM only) • Supports Intel® Viiv™ technology-based software and appli- cations (Intel 82566DC only) for simple network setup and content sharing • Enables improved battery life with additional features (Intel 82566MM/MC only); Intel® Auto Connect Battery Saver and reduced link speed when in battery mode Overview The Intel® 82566 Gigabit Ethernet Connections are compact, single-port integrated physical layer devices that connect to appropriate Intel® chipsets with an integrated Media Access Controller (MAC). The Intel 82566 Network Connections are copper networking components for desktop, mobile, work station, and basic-needs server designs with critical space constraints. The 82566DM/MM supports Intel AMT with System Defense to help IT better discover, heal and protect their PCs. The 82566DM/MM also supports Intel Virtualization Technology through the Intel® Virtual Gigabit Network Connection. The 82566DM/MM can also support legacy ASF2.0. The 82566DC supports Intel Viiv technology and the associated software and applications. • Flexible, low-cost system design: The Intel 82566 network components provide a small-package (10x10 mm) networking option for convenient board layout. Additionally, the 82566 network components are designed to be footprint compatible with the Intel 82562V 10/100 Network Connection so that single-board designs can accommodate both Gigabit and 10/100 networking options. Also, to reduce the system BOM cost and space, the 82566 supports an integrated linear voltage regulator. • Intel® business client features: The Intel 82566DM/MM are a key platform ingredient for enabling Intel® vPro™ technology, by providing always-available network connectivity and hardware filters. Intel vPro technology provides built-in manageability, strengthened security and energy-efficient performance. Intel vPro technology is also supported by a wide range of leading software vendors.
