The Compaq NC3121 network adapter is a device that provides connectivity between a computer system an an Ethernet Local Area Network (LAN). A computer system is any Intel/PCI based computer system with a compatible PCI slot, OS driver support and Ethernet hub connection. The Compaq NC3131 Fast Ethernet NIC is a high performance, upgradable NIC with two fully integrated 10Base-T/100Base-TX networking chips. The NIC supports emerging standards for system manageability and power management, such as ACPI.
The Compaq NC3131 NIC is a sophisticated 64-bit PCI component with enhanced scatter-gather bus-mastering capabilities. Its true 64-bit architecture enables it to perform high-speed data transfers on the PCI bus using four DMA channels. Its sophisticated microcode-based engine enables the controllers to process high level commands and perform multiple operations without CPU intervention. The NC3131 also operates in a standard 32-bit PCI slot and will support both 32-bit and 64-bit systems.
