  1. It is indeed a transformer. Its main purpose is to isolate the card
    from the network. Isolating the network from the PC eliminates ground
    loops and such. It's not there to convert the signal (the PC side of
    the transformer is not TTL).

    Hello everyone,

    I've got a PCI network card and on the card is large black component. On
    the component is written the following details:


    I've been to the Taimag website and as far as I can tell it's some sort of
    transformer or transceiver. Is this correct? If so, what exactly does it
    do? It seems
    either the output or the input of the component is connected directly to the
    LAN cable. I was thinking it might be acting as a transceiver, converting
    the network signal to a TTL signal.

    Thanks for any info,
