MEN Mikro's GP2 is a 3U Gigabit Ethernet PHY line card implemented as a CompactPCI® Serial board. It occupies one peripheral slot using a 4 HP front panel with four Gigabit Ethernet ports on SFP cages. The GP2 is designed to work in combination with the G101 CompactPCI® Serial managed industrial Ethernet switch.
The GP2 provides four cages for 100BASE-FX, 1000BASE-SX, 1000BASELX and 1000BASE-ZX SFP modules. Each interface supports a data transfer rate of 1 Gbit/s max and provides two LEDs to indicate the link and activity status.
The GP2 operates with a primary voltage supply of +12 V, which is provided via the rear CompactPCI® serial connector. All additional required voltages are generated onboard. It is fully compliant with the EN 50155 railway standard, qualified for a -40 to +85°C operation temperature and ready for coating.
Note: This is a line card, not a peripheral card (i.e. connects to QSGMII interfaces on CompactPCI® Serial backplane, specifically P1) - refer to block diagram for clarifiction.
