Multi-Fabric Switch Targets High Performance Computing Systems

The PEX431 multi-fabric switch and PMC/XMC carrier card from GE Intelligent Platforms is designed for complex, scalable, high performance 3U VPX mil/aero computing systems. It complements GE’s recently announced SBC326 3U VPX single board computer based on the Intel Core i7 processor. The PEX431’s multi-fabric network switching capability includes PCI Express Gen 2.0/Gen 3.0 and up to nine ports total of 1000BaseBX and 1000BaseT Gigabit Ethernet, with support for three OpenVPX payload profiles. The PEX431 provides both control plane and data plane switching on a single board and, with the ability to be a carrier card for an XMC mezzanine card, potentially reduces the number of slots required to implement a given system, or allows more functionality to be configured in the same number of slots.
