Rugged CompactPCI Serial Ethernet switch for mobile communications introduced by MEN Micro

AMBLER, Pa., 14 April 2011. MEN Micro Inc. in Ambler, Pa., is introducing the rugged G301 CompactPCI Serial Ethernet switch for mobile communications applications in harsh operating conditions. The board complies with the PICMG CompactPCI Serial standard, and has four Gigabit Ethernet ports via RJ45 or M12 connectors in the front. A fifth Gigabit Port is optional, and could be accessible at the back with the J6 connector.

The G301 for embedded computing operates in temperatures from -40 to 70 degrees Celsius, and could operate in 85 C for as long as 10 minutes, per railway standard EN 50155. All parts on the board are soldered to stand up to shock and vibration, and have conformal coating.

The board provides reliable communications, and supports full and half duplex, fast non-blocking store-and-forward switching, autonegotiation, and Layer-2 switching. The fault-tolerant switch can restore itself automatically.

The G301 supports Power-Over-Ethernet with power sourcing equipment for as many as four external devices consuming 28 Watts of power. For more information contact MEN Micro online at
