Flexible 4-channel gigabit Ethernet interface introduced

Abaco Systems has added to its range of network interface card options with new XMC477RC 4-Channel SFP Gigabit Ethernet Interface.

The new XMC is distinguished by its support for four SFP (Small Form Factor Pluggable) modules for maximum flexibility, allowing customers to choose between 1000BASE-X optical or 1000BASE-T copper connectivity.

When paired with an Abaco single board computer, the XMC477RC delivers a high degree of functional density that can reduce the number of cards in a chassis. This can eliminate the requirement for a dedicated Ethernet switch – minimising the size, weight and power (SWaP) of a subsystem.

“Minimising size, weight and power is becoming increasingly important to our customers as military platforms become smaller while incorporating increasing functionality – and the XMC477RC can play a key role in helping them achieve that,” commented Peter Thompson, Vice President, Product Management at Abaco. “The XMC477RC further broadens our already-extensive product offering, enhancing our ability to provide customers with a complete, single source solution.”

The XMC477RC also provides a simple and highly cost-effective form, fit and function compatible upgrade for existing users of the PMC676RC or PMC677RC who will benefit from a more configurable product with higher throughput.

Fully rugged, with the ability to operate in temperatures between -40°C to +85°C, the XMC477RC is designed for naval, land and air platforms within defence and aerospace markets. That includes fire control systems, airborne mission computers, radar systems and flight control.
