Active network redundancy XMC Switch Mezzanine Card


Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC ZU4CG

4 * 10/100/1000BASE-T channels (front or rear)

1 * Gigabit Ethernet Controller

Redundancy protocols: PRP, HSR


The IC-RBP-XMCa takes advantage of the new Interface Concept XMC FPGA module to add a dual attached redundancy capability to Single Board Computers or systems interconnected via Ethernet, in high availability applications.


The IC-RBP-XMCa allows to strengthen Ethernet communication systems by implementing redundancy functions in the network in order to prevent any failure.

Using standard protocols such as Parallel Redundancy Protocol (PRP), the IC-RBP-XMCa’s sending nodes replicate frames over two independent Ethernet networks that operate in parallel between senders and receivers.

The receiving node processes the frame arriving first and discards the duplicate. In case of failure of one network link, seamless redundancy is provided between the dual attached nodes.

Plugged onto a cPCI, VME and VPX carrier or SBC, the IC-RBP-XMCa brings these redundancy and robustness functionalities to all standards of critical embedded applications.

Instead of the PRP protocol, the High-availability Seamless Redundancy (HSR) protocol can also be implemented in order to provide seamless failover in case of a network failure in the ring topology created between IC-RBP-XMCa boards.

The IC-RBP-XMCa management and supervision application allow integrators to manage double attached nodes according to the Ethernet network characteristics. 

This application supplies network statistics, checks the integrity of the network and generates real-time events like the loss, for instance, of a network link. 

This application can be remotely controlled through: 


Graphical User Interface (GUI HTTP)

Command Line Interface (CLI)

This XMC module complies with environment constraints for industrial, transportation or mil-aero applications.

It is available in air-cooled version (-40°C to 75°C).
