Original Press Release:

PC/104-Size Gigabit Ethernet Module with SUMIT(TM) PCI Express Speeds Networking

Arlington, TX -WinSystems today announced a SUMIT-ISM(TM) compatible Gigabit Ethernet module designed for high-speed networking connectivity for small form factor, industrial embedded applications. The PXM-GIGE is a 90 x 96mm module that connects to 10/100/1000 Mbps networks using standard Category 5 (CAT5) unshielded twisted pair (UTP) copper cables. It offers a stackable PCI Express expansion on a PC/104 module with the addition of the industry-standard high-speed SUMIT connector. It plugs directly into WinSystems' PXM-C388-S, a 1.66HGz Atom(TM) N455-based SBC as well as other SUMIT-ISM compatible products available elsewhere.

The PXM-GIGE is based upon the Intel 82573 controller whose architecture is optimized to deliver both high-performance and PCIe bus efficiency with the lowest power and smallest size. The 82573 efficiently handles packets with minimum latency by combining a parallel and pipelined logic architecture optimized for Gigabit Ethernet and independent transmit and receive queues. Also IEEE 802.3ab Auto-Negotiation, IEEE 802.3x-compliant flow control, adaptive equalization, echo cancellation, and crosstalk cancellation are supported as well.

The PXM-GIGE module is wired to the x1 PCIe lane of the SUMIT-A connector and automatically selects the first available link. The PC/104 connector is supported for legacy stacks. It requires only +5 volts at 0.67A and will operate from -40°C to +85°C.

The PXM-GIGE supports Linux, Windows®, and other x86-compatible real-time operating systems. Free drivers are available from the WinSystems' website.

The PXM-GIGE is priced at $199 (qty. = 1). Delivery is from stock. For sales information, please list; WinSystems' Application Engineering Group at 715 Stadium Drive, Arlington, Texas 76011, Ph: (817) 274-7553, fax: (817) 548-1358, Website and the e-mail:
