PC/104+ 2-Channel GbE Module connects to embedded networks.

Press Release Summary:

Employing DSP and mixed-mode signal technologies, PPM-GIGE-2 offers self-stacking I/O expansion on PC/104, EPIC, and EBX SBCs based on PC/104-Plus form factor. Add-in module uses RJ45 connectors to plug into 10/100/1000 Mbps networks using CAT5 unshielded twisted pair (UTP) copper cables. Dual onboard Realtek RTL8110 Gigabit Ethernet controllers combine triple-speed, IEEE 802.3-compliant MAC with triple-speed Ethernet transceiver, 32-bit PCI bus controller, and embedded memory.

Original Press Release:

PC/104-Plus Dual Channel Gigabit Ethernet Module Connects to Embedded Networks

Arlington, TX -WinSystems, a supplier of PC/104 Single Board Computers (SBCs) and I/O modules, today announced a two channel, Gigabit Ethernet LAN module designed to offer flexible, high-performance networking connectivity for industrial embedded applications. Named the PPM-GIGE-2, it offers self-stacking I/O expansion on PC/104, EPIC, and EBX SBCs based on the industry-standard PC/104-Plus form factor. This add-in module uses standard RJ-45 connectors to plug into 10/100/1000 Mbps networks using standard Category 5 (CAT5) unshielded twisted pair (UTP) copper cables.

Two Realtek RTL8110s are the Ethernet controllers used by the PPM-GIGE-2. They are supported by a wide range of operating systems including Windows®, Linux, and other x86 real time operating systems. These onboard Gigabit Ethernet controllers combine a triple-speed, IEEE 802.3 compliant Media Access Controller (MAC) with a triple-speed Ethernet transceiver, 32-bit PCI bus controller, and embedded memory. With state of-the-art DSP technology and mixed-mode signal technology, it offers high-speed transmission over CAT 5 UTP cable. Functions such as crossover detection and auto-correction, polarity correction, adaptive equalization, cross-talk cancellation, echo cancellation, timing recovery, and error correction are implemented to provide robust transmission and reception capability at gigabit data speeds.

The PPM-GIGE-2 requires only +5 volts at 500 mA (2.5W). It will operate from -40°C to +85°C. The module measures 90mm x 96mm (3.6" x 3.8") and weighs only 88 grams (3 ounces).

WinSystems also offers a single channel version of this board called the PPM-GIGE-1.

The dual channel PPM-GIGE-2 is priced at $199 (qty. = 1) and the single channel PPM-GIGE-1 is priced at $149 (qty = 1). Delivery is from stock.
