|Dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet XMC Adapter|
PDF print version of this specification :
The Dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet XMC (PCI-Express Mezzanine Card)
Adapter provides dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet communications links over multimode
fibre optic media. It is well suited for ultra high-speed communications links
in mission-critical, real-time systems and is ideal for bandwidth-intensive
networked applications such as the streaming of multiple high-definition digital
The adapter design complies with the XMC specification (ANSI/VITA 42.3-2006) and
is available in ruggedised, industrial and commercial versions.
The Dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet XMC Adapter uses a low power intelligent ASIC for
the control of both 10 Gigabit Ethernet MACs (Media Access Controllers). The
ASIC removes protocol processing overhead from the host system, thus providing
higher nett data throughput.
Interfacing on the host carrier side is done via the Single Board Computer’s
(SBC) PCI-Express system bus which is an
efficient, high bandwidth peripheral interconnect medium.
I/O Media Interface
The adapter utilises frontpanel XFP (10 Gigabit Small Form Factor Pluggable)
transceivers to connect externally via
multimode fibre optic media.
The XFP transceivers are housed in a rugged, thermally conductive aluminium cage
which conforms to the mechanical specifications set forth in the XMC
specification. The aluminium cage is designed to minimize radiated EMI
(Electromagnetic Interference). XFP transceivers are hot-pluggable and can
easily be replaced in the field.
