6U CompactPCI 10 Gigabit Ethernet Switch Blade

6U Compact PCI Blade


Conforming to the PICMG 2.16 specification, the ADLINK cPCI-6S10 is a fully-managed CompactPCI Gigabit Ethernet switch blade supporting up to twenty four 1GbE ports and two 10GbE SPF+ uplink ports. On the front panel are three GbE ports, two 10GbE SFP+ uplink ports, one COM port and one 10/100 RJ-45 management port. Twenty GbE ports are routed to rear I/O and an IPMI interface is provided to monitor and control system health.

The ADLINK cPCI-6S10 integrates Broadcom BCM56150 switch silicon with built-in ARM Cortex-A9 processor and one Broadcom BCM54685 Octal port 1000BASE-T PHY. The cPCI-6S10 is ideal for CompactPCI platform adopters who require high-speed and high-bandwidth data transport interconnects for packet switching management.

The ADLINK cPCI-6S10 supports ADLINK PacketManager, a software suite with an extensive feature set and integration capabilities that enables powerful networking functionality for the Base Interface. It supports friendly CLI(Command Line Interface) for customer easy management and provides comprehensive device management capabilities for network administrators. The cPCI-6S10 bundled PacketManager supports port management, LACP(IEEE802.3ad Link Aggregation Control Protocal), STP (IEEE802.1D Spanning Tree Protocal), VLAN management, ACL (Access Control List) and QoS (Quality of Service).

Designed to meet the needs of various challenging applications in industrial and military systems, the ADLINK cPCI-6S10 facilitates communications within a chassis and outside of chassis. It supports redundancy based on PICMG 2.16 specification to be used for mission critical environment supporting IPMI v1.5 and extended temperature configuration on request.
