Rugged COM Express Ethernet switch for rugged military applications introduced by Diamond
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., 16 Jan. 2014. Diamond Systems Corp. in Mountain View, Calif., is introducing the Epsilon-12G2 rugged managed Layer 2+ Ethernet switch COM Express module for rugged military, on-vehicle, and industrial applications.
The Ethernet COM Express module offers 12 10/100/1000-megabit-per-second copper twisted-pair ports and two-small-form-factor pluggable (SFP) sockets. The standalone switch does not require any host computer interface. A 480 MHz MIPS processor embedded into the switch manages all switch functions.
The embedded computing processor is accessed via an in-band Web interface over one of the Ethernet ports or via an out-of-band command-line interface over an RS-232 serial port. The integrated Web interface provides an intuitive graphic user interface (GUI) for configuring and managing switch functionality.
On-board memory holds dual application images, boot code, MAC addresses, and other parameters, and also can be used for program execution.
The Epsilon-12G2 operates over an extended temperature range of -40 to 85 degrees Celsius. All I/O connectors are latching for enhanced reliability. The 5-to-40-volt-wide range DC-DC power supply is compatible with common vehicle and industrial power sources.
The switch's dual SFP socket interfaces to 1-Gigabit fiber Ethernet networks. One port can operate at an enhanced 2.5 gigabits to support stacking of two switches together for a combined total of 26 ports.
