Kontron has released its dual Gigabit Ethernet mezzanine board, the XMC-ETH2.

All VPX, VME, CompactPCI and custom boards offering a PMC or XMC slot can be extended by two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces that can be individually routed to the front or to the backplane.

Equipped with the Intel 82571 Dual Channel Ethernet Controller, the Kontron XMC-ETH2 mezzanine board delivers best possible data throughput.

The mezzanine board comes in two versions: air-cooled (Standard Commercial) or conduction-cooled (Rugged Conduction Cooled Version) to suit individual system environments.

Typical application areas can be found in markets such as medical, transportation, military, aerospace, energy and automation.

Owing to the board’s support of XMC and PMC extension slots, it can be used universally in different system designs.

Designed as a Plug and Play solution, the Ethernet mezzanine board automatically selects the data bus according to whether the power supply is present on the P5 connector (x4 PCI Express).

Otherwise, it switches to 32 bit PCI 33 or 66MHz on the PMC connectors.

An integrated micro DIP switch allows for manual override of the host bus selection.

Another micro DIP switch controls Ethernet channel routing to the front panel (RJ-45) or to the backplane (P4).

Each channel can be routed separately.

The Kontron XMC-ETH2 dual Gigabit Ethernet mezzanine board supports Linux, VxWorks and Windows XP.

The SA version for air-cooled system designs in a temperature range of 0 to 55C (VITA 47-Class AC1) and the RC version for robust conduction-cooled systems in the extended temperature range of -40 to 85C (VITA 47-Class CC4).
