Quad-port GbE XMC modules are designed for COTS

Available in RJ45, SFP, and rear I/O versions, the XMC610 series of modules from Acromag provide four independent gigabit Ethernet interface ports when used on VME, VPX, PCIe or other embedded computing carrier boards.

The Intel I350 Ethernet Controller interfaces with the PCIe bus via four high-speed serial lanes on the XMC P15 connector. Three models are available, the XMC611 model offers four RJ45 connectors on the front panel for copper cabling while the XMC612 substitutes four SFP connectors to additionally support fiber optic media. The rear I/O model XMC613 routes four 1000BASE-T connections to the P16 connector and is compatible with conduction-cooling frames. All versions are lead-free.

The XMC modules are designed for COTS applications and for use in defence, aerospace, industrial, and scientific research computing systems.

Employing Intel’s advanced I350 four-port gigabit Ethernet controller, the networking modules introduce new levels of performance including improved power management technologies, such as energy-efficient Ethernet and direct memory access coalescing. Other enhancements add flexibility for virtual functions and increased offload capabilities. Auto-negotiation supports 10/100/1000 Mbits per second data rates. A 3.3V low power design and extended temperature operation from -40 to 85 degree C simplify system integration. Software support is available for embedded applications running on Linux, Windows, or VxWorks operating systems.
