Kontron CP6925 - 6U cPCI/CompactPCI® 16 Port Unmanaged Gigabit Ethernet Switch

Cost optimized unmanaged solution , 0 to +55°C Operation


The CP6925 is a cost-effective 16 port 6U single-slot CompactPCI® Gigabit Ethernet Switch. Based on a highly integrated Ethernet Switch the board is designed for operation in industrial automation applications. The Kontron CP6925 unmanaged switch provides 14x Gigabit Ethernet ports at the rear of the J3 and J5 CompactPCI® connector as well as 2x Gigabit Ethernet uplink ports to the front. Features such as auto negotiation and full duplex communication recommends the CP6925 itself as a highly fl exible and confi gurable Ethernetswitch making the board ideal for the implementation of structured networ segments.

On the CP6925 the Broadcom BCM5396 Gigabit Ethernet Switch is used. This device is a highly integrated solution. It combines all the functions of a highspeed switch system, including packet buffer, media access controllers, address management, and a nonblocking switch fabric. It complies with IEEE802.3, 802.3U, 802.3ab, and 802.3x specifi cations, including the MAC control, pause frame and auto negotiation subsections, providing compatibility with all industry-standard Ethernet, Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet devices.

The CP6925 can be used in applications where several CPU boards are configured into segments in a 19-inch rack system or where a central processor system supervises several distributed controllers. Providing ports to the J3 and J5 CompactPCI® connectors allows the board to be used in PICMG 2.16 applications. Supporting non-PICMG 2.16 systems as well, these ports can be routed to an appropriate rear transition module to enable rear access.
