CompactPCI high performance Gigabit Ethernet switch
14 October 2010
Amplicon’s Industrial Computing division has added a new five port CompactPCI high performance Gigabit Ethernet switch to its range of cPCI add on modules. The EKF CL1-Combo is a high performance managed Gigabit switch in a 3U single width CompactPCI form factor. It provides five Gigabit Ethernet ports on its front panel, with a sixth port optionally connected directly to the host cPCI controller through the PCI bus without the need for additional cabling. It can also be provided as a standalone module not requiring a connection to the PCI bus.
The CL1-Combo is equipped with a Marvel 88E6350R switch which has built in management, and a rich feature set including the latest 802.1 Audio Video Bridging (AVB) standards and support for Quality of Service (QOS), providing a highly reliable and consistent network infrastructure.
As a CompactPCI module, the switch is designed for use in harsh environments with excellent resistance to shock/vibration and provides the potential for several separate switch modules to be housed in a single 3U cPCI 19” enclosure, each with an optional direct link to the same host computer, removing the need for several additional network interfaces and cabling.
