Acromag | December 06, 2021

Acromag's new XMC633 module offers two independent 10-gigabit Ethernet interface ports with 10GBASE-KX4 protocol. The XMC mezzanine card mounts on VME, VPX, PCIe and other embedded computing carrier boards. An industry-leading Intel XL710 Ethernet Controller provides high-performance network connectivity with advanced off-load and virtualization capabilities. The rear I/O model XMC633 routes two KX4 interfaces to the P16 connector and is compatible with conduction-cooling frames. Two other models are available. Acromag's XMC631 has four SFP+ front panel connectors for fiber optic or copper media transceivers, while the rear I/O XMC632 routes two XAUI interfaces to P16. Optional VITA 61 connectors enable PCIe Gen3 data rates across eight high-speed serial lanes on the XMC P15 connector. Designed for COTS applications, XMC630s are ideal for use in defense, aerospace, industrial, and scientific computing systems. Extended temperature operation is supported. Acromag responded to requests for additional 10GbE interface protocols. Using the latest Intel Ethernet Controller technologies, we now support 10GBASE-KX4 and XAUI backplane interfaces."
