Aitech C670 - 6U VPX Gigabit Ethernet Switch

24 GbE Ports and Four 10-GbE Ports, Transition Module Option


Aitech’s C670 is a high-performance 6U VPX Gigabit Ethernet Switch for embedded and harsh environment applications. The C670 is based on the Marvell® Prestera® 98DX4122 Gigabit Ethernet Switch Controller and Marvell’s Routing OS. The C670 includes an embedded web server, providing HTML pages that allow the user to manage the switch. The simplified browser-based user interface is an intuitive management tool, enabling convenient use of the switch's comprehensive feature set for a betteroptimized network. Command line administration is also supported over network and RS-232 connections.

C670 mechanical and electrical design guarantees reliable operation over the full range of rugged application environments. It is available in industry standard 0.8'' pitch conduction-cooled or 1" pitch air-cooled form factors. The C670 is also available in a 0.85" pitch conduction-cooled version for the VITA 48 (VPX REDI) configuration, providing support for two level maintenance requirements.

VITA 48 (REDI) Compliant Option
ElectricalThe C670 takes all its power from the backplane. It is powered by +5 Vdc. The board does not require any additional power supplies – all additional required voltages are generated on-board.
The C670 has a total power consumption of 32.6 W (5 V, 6.52 A).
