XMC Ethernet Switch Module Seeks Military Duty

The XMC-651 lays claim to being the embedded military market’s first managed XMC Ethernet switch. Providing 12 ports of Gigabit Ethernet, it requires no additional slot and mounts on virtually any VPX or VME module supporting the XMC mezzanine standard. The module is also available in a PMC mezzanine configuration (PMC-651) that provides up to eight ports of managed GbE switching. Other features include support for full line-rate non-blocked switching, air-cooled and conduction-cooled versions, Broadcom’s tenth-generation switching technology, IEEE 802.3 compliance, support for jumbo packets, configurable Layer-2 features (VLAN, L2 multicast, QoS services), support for port mirroring and link aggregation, and no software required, only power and I/O from base card.
