Rugged PMC Design.
The MPR-ES-1 is a full-featured Ethernet switch implemented on a rugged PMC card. It is ideal for embedded networking applications in both conduction and convection cooled systems.
- Managed or unmanaged operation
(unmanaged by default)
- On-board magnetics
- 8 - 10/100/Auto (external)
- 1 - 10/100/1000/Auto (external)
- 1 - 10/100/1000/Auto (host)
- 8K MAC address table
- Full/Half duplex
- Auto crossover detection
- Independent MAC per port
- IPv4 and IPv6 operation
- IEEE 802.3 compliant
10-port Ethernet switch.
The switch features 8 fast switch ports and one GigE switch/uplink port brought to the card's P14 rear I/O connector. A second GigE port provides a direct host connection through an on-board Ethernet controller (NIC).
Managed or unmanaged.
The MPR-ES-1 operates as a simple unmanaged switch by default, or can be fully managed to control complex switch operations and gather detailed stastical data.
This MPR-ES-1 is a fitting choice for new system designs, or as a low-cost way to upgrade or expand existing systems. It provides reliable performance in applications such as:
- High reliability/high throughput switching
- Network bridging/segmentation
- Red/Black network segmentation
- VoIP and digital video
- N-redundant network
- Ethernet expansion for embedded systems
- "In-chassis" or external networking
- Layer 2/3 support
- Onboard management processor
- Multiple management interfaces
- Quality of Service (QOS)
The switch collects information about card and network health, along with temperature data, and makes it available through the host or external GigE ports. Features include:
BIT (Built-In Test)
- Temperature monitoring
- RMON statistics counter
- Port mirroring
- Virtual Cable Tester
The CCPMC form factor allows easy integration with modern embedded computers, including VME, VME-64, cPCI, and VPX systems. Low power consumption and high MTBF ratings make the MPR-ES-1 an ideal choice for rugged, high-availability systems.
