XMC mounts on VME, VPX, PCI Express, and other embedded computing carrier boards, and has an Intel XL710 Ethernet controller for network connectivity.

WIXOM, Mich. – Acromag in Wixom, Mich., is introducing the XMC633 Switch Mezzanine Card (XMC) with two independent 10-gigabit Ethernet interface ports with 10GBASE-KX4 protocol for defense, aerospace, industrial, and scientific embedded computing applications.

The XMC mounts on VME, VPX, PCI Express, and other embedded computing carrier boards. An Intel XL710 Ethernet controller provides network connectivity with off-load and virtualization.

The XMC modules operate in temperatures from -40 to 85 degrees Celsius. The rear I/O model XMC633 routes two KX4 interfaces to the P16 connector and is compatible with conduction-cooling frames.

These high-reliability XMC modules optimize network performance with intelligent off-loading, virtualization, and advanced traffic direction. When paired with a Xeon-D processor, the two Intel devices provide a balanced hybrid solution of compute and off-load.

Other features include precision timing, Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), and dynamic load balancing. Advanced traffic steering capabilities increase transaction rates and reduce latency.

In rugged systems, the dual KX4 or XAUI interface offers low-cost, low-power 10 Gigabit Ethernet chip-to-chip communication over the backplane. The four front I/O SFP+ ports support 10GBASE-SR, 10GBASE-LR, 10GBASE-T, and 10GSFP+Cu connections.

Software support is available for Linux and Windows systems. For more information contact Acromag online at www.acromag.com.
