Document ScopeThis document contains targeted datasheet specifications for the Intel® 82573 GbE Controller, including signal descriptions, DC and AC parameters, packaging data, and pinout information.Introduction Intel® 82573 GbE controllers are single, compact components with integrated Gigabit Ethernet Media Access Control (MAC) and Physical Layer (PHY) functions. These devices use PCIe* architecture. For desktop, workstation, and value server network designs with critical space constraints, the Intel 82573 enables a GbE implementation in a very small area.The Intel® 82573 provides a standard IEEE 802.3 Ethernet interface for 1000BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, and 10BASE-T applications (802.3, 802.3u, and 802.3ab, respectively). In addition to managing MAC and PHY Ethernet layer functions, the 82573 manages PCIe* packet traffic across its transaction, link, and physical and logical layers.The Intel® 82573E contains a dedicated microcontroller for manageability with an on-board Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) enabling network. This enables manageability implementations required by information technology personnel for out-of-band management, remote troubleshooting and recovery, asset management, and non-volatile storage. Intel® AMT is the first step towards a complete Intel® Cross Platform Manageability Program (Intel® CPMP), which is a business and technology initiative to deliver consistent management capabilities, protocols, and interfaces across all Intel platforms.
