Intel® 82559 Fast Ethernet Controller
Intel® 82550 The 82559 Fast Ethernet controller with an integrated 10/100 Mbps physical layer device is Intelís leading solution for PCI board LAN designs. It is designed for use in Network Interface Cards (NICs), PC LAN On Motherboard (LOM) designs, embedded systems and networking system products. The 82559 combines a low power and small package design which is ideal for power and space constrained environments.

The 82559 continues Intel's platform LAN technology leadership supporting: Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) 1.20A based power management, wake on Magic Packet*, wake on interesting packet, advanced System Management Bus (SMB) based manageability, Wired for Management (WfM) 2.0 compliance, IP checksum assist, PCI 2.2 compliance, and PC 98, PC 99, Server 99, and PC 2000 compliance. Designs based on the 82559 for desktop systems, laptops, PC cards and servers will set a new industry standard for energy conservation.
