This product is not recommended for new designs. Please contact us.

ComEth4100 is built on the latest generation of Gigabit switch engine combined with an optional PowerPC processor for the management. The switch core contains a high-speed non blocking four traffic class QoS switch fabric.

ComEth4100 is designed specifically for embedded systems. The ultra low-power design and the thermal monitoring make the integration easier.


  • 6U cPCI
  • Managed Layer 2+/ 3
  • 8*10/100/1000Base-T (rear or front)
  • 1000BaseSX (front)
  • conduction-cooled compliant

The unmanaged switch is “factory” configured from an on-board EPROM. However it is lightly manageable. It can be configured by a specific EPROM. As well a software running on a PC allows to configure and to control the ComETh4100. In this case the PC is connected to the switch by its parallel port. Only a part of the functionalities are available in this version of ComEth4100.
