The C-Class hardware platform is the basis for the industry’s lowest cost packet capture solution, delivering zero packet loss across the full range of Ethernet packet sizes in combination with Sniffer10G software.
A C-Class adapter enabled by Myricom MVA software provides the highest performance solution for GigE Vision capable cameras in machine vision applications. The MVA software accelerates frame receipt and reduces CPU overhead to virtually nothing.
For Automated Trading applications, the C-Class with DBL software drives down system-level Tick-To-Trade latency and enables advanced financial trading capabilities.
For content creation applications and storage connectivity, the C-Class Adapters offer the highest performance in their class. Support for a broad range of operating systems enables the C-Class to be used in all types of solutions.
The cost-effective C-Class module is available in multiple form factors, including low-profile PCIe and PC/104. It supports Windows, Linux and MAC O/S and is compatible with leading Thunderbolt Chassis.
Used with the Sniffer10G software, it provides 100% lossless packet capture and injection for all Ethernet packet sizes and supports the maximum possible 10G packet rate of 14.8 million packets per second.
Packet Capture Software Support
The Sniffer10G packet capture capabilities can be leveraged through the popular Libpcap (Linux), WinPcap (Windows) library or directly through the Sniffer10G SNF API, which is available as a set of C programming language functions. Using a SNF-aware libpcap/WinPcap, users reference a C-Class network adapter through its Ethernet interface name and then can run existing libpcap/WinPcap-dependent applications, relying on libpcap/WinPcap’s portable interface. For more advanced usage, the SNF API can be directly targeted by user applications. In both usage cases, network access via the SNF interface to the network adapter, rather than via the standard kernel access, provides higher performance.
Support for GigE Vision Devices
MVA software, running on a C-Class network adapter, provides a high-performance platform for GigE Vision enabled devices. An MVA enabled adapter is uniquely able to provide a virtual frame capture capability for high speed GigE Vision Ethernet cameras. The MVA adapter processes the Ethernet packets composing camera frames and DMAs the payload contiguously and directly into the application buffers with no host CPU involvement. Doing this significantly reduces the overhead cost of frame capture, thereby making more host computer cycles available for image processing. It also reduces latency, reduces jitter and it load balances between host CPU cores. It will never get too busy and drop a packet.
Financial Trading Capabilities
Financial Trading Software Support
DBL software drives down Tick-To-Trade latency at multiple points in the trading process, allowing applications to deliver higher fill rates. It moves packets into the host computer with the lowest possible latency, then sends those packets directly to specific CPU cores, bypassing the kernel entirely. It also stages TCP market orders or quotes in advance to further reduce latency.
DBL End Points
Support for 32 simultaneous rings (DBL endpoints). The size of each ring is limited by the amount of host memory available. Support of up to 511 simultaneous UDP multicast groups open per Ethernet port (1022 per board).
Regulatory Approvals, Compliance
Emissions and safety authorities do not certify board-level products. They certify complete systems with all boards installed. To minimize risk for OEM customers, CSPi uses a third-party certiﬁcation organization to test its Myricom adapters installed into a generic PC. Final test reports are available to customers. We meet US, Canadian, and European emissions, Class A.

Warranty and add-on support
Three years for hardware defects and 90 days for software defects. 90 days of “getting started” telephone and email support as well as any software upgrades shipped within that window. Refer to the support page for options extending the 90-day window.
