The Santa Clara, Calif., chip maker said it is acquiring NetEffect's Ethernet product portfolio, intellectual property and technology. NetEffect's products include Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapters for servers and blade configurations, as well as 10 Gigabit Ethernet Application Specific Integrated Circuits, Intel officials said.

Thirty employees, primarily engineers, have joined the Intel team from NetEffect and will continue to be based in Austin, Texas.
