6U VPX 24-Channel Rugged Ethernet Switch
Amphenol Aerospace is the world’s leader in high-end performance interconnect products for rugged environment markets. Media and protocol conversion is an important capability enabling system connectivity from commercial off-the-shelf switches, processors, and I/O boards.
Amphenol’s Rugged 24 Channel 6U VPX Ethernet Switch features an integrated high–speed ARM Cortez-A9 processor, embedded Cortex-R5 processor and consists of 16 channels of 1GBase-T, four channels of 10GBase-T, and four channels of 10GBase-KR. Our switch includes IEEE standards-compliant functionality such as Time-Aware Scheduling, Preemption, and High-availability Seamless Redundancy to support Time Sensitive Networks. Port extension capability containing a controlling bridge can consistently manage and enforce Quality of Service to support VNTag and IEEE 802.1BR. Synchronous Ethernet Clock recovery is supported on any of the ports to support physical layer clock synchronization, provide hooks for both 1588v2 and IEEEE 802.1, offer integrated DPLL for recovered clock cleanup as well as G.823 and G.824-compliant clock synthesizer.
This array of features within our switch coupled with low power and short boot times makes our switch the perfect fit for rugged applications including harsh environment avionics, ground systems, or naval applications and is configurable for system connectivity, speeds, port types, and interoperation with various high-speed media converters and connectors for system interfacing.
