The XMC402 dual 10G Ethernet Mezzanine is designed to fit on CompactPCI, VME, or VPX Single-Board Computers or carriers with XMC sockets.
It provides two independent 10G Ethernet copper interfaces through RJ45 connectors.
In addition to the great processing performance on Kontron´s CPU side, the next generation 10 Gigabit Switched Mezzanine Card (XMC) provides sufficient data throughput for today's Ethernet networks. Two 10GbE ports attached by PCIe x8 to the host computer, combined with new capabilities and enhancement of the Intel® X540 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller, helps unshackle processors from their predecessor’s network I/O handcuffs and unleashes blazing performance in a variety of usage models. Supporting latest Intel VT technologies, Kontron provides the platform foundation for virtualization and storage over Ethernet usages and provides new opportunities to more efficiently utilize network links. Offering the possibility of either one or two channels, as well as the support of copper (CAT6A) transmission, the XMC402 allows a maximum flexibility.Furthermore, it supports intelligent behaviour through the auto detection feature of copper network configurations.
