Kontron Brings 10GE to CompactPCI, VME
With six SFP+ interfaces for 10Gb, two SFP interfaces for 1Gb Ethernet switching on the front and 24 GbE ports on the back, the new switch boosts the performance of VME and CompactPCI systems based on the latest processor boards for intra- and intercommunication. The non-blocking, fully managed L2/L3 switch allows system designers to stay ahead of the rising transaction and traffic loads in many embedded system designs and communication networks therefore maximizing the usage and longevity of their systems and reducing the TCO for customers' solutions.
The new Kontron CP6930 6U switch fits into both CompactPCI and VME (via the VITA 31.1 specification*) system chassis and offers unmatched price-to-performance ratio by implementing the highly integrated Broadcom single-chip switching solution. The CP6930 also offers an AMCC PowerPC for individually configurable application control and a Microcontroller for IPMI-based platform management. With the fully managed software environment and a comprehensive firmware package, the Kontron CP6930 is customizable based on the individual requirements of the installation. This enables the Kontron CP6930 to consolidate even the most complex data flow architectures into one system and simplifies the development of application-ready high-quality platforms so that system engineers can reduce time-to-market by focusing their development efforts on the customer's application. Vertical markets for serial-switched CompactPCI and VME hardware environments include storage networks (NAS, SAN), telecommunication networks (IPTV, VoIP, Mobile), wireless radio network controllers (Tetra) and high-speed servers for aerospace and military applications. High-end medical and automation platforms also benefit from a bottleneck-free 10 Gb environment.
