MPR-ES-1 PMC Ethernet Switch

The MPR-ES-1 is a full-featured Ethernet switch implemented on a rugged PMC card. It is ideal for embedded networking applications in both conduction and convection cooled systems.

  • On-board magnetics
  • 8 – 10/100/Auto (external)
  • 1 – 10/100/1000/Auto (external)
  • 1 – 10/100/1000/Auto (host)
  • 8K MAC address table
  • Full/Half duplex
  • Auto crossover detection
  • Independent MAC per port
  • IPv4 and IPv6 operation
  • IEEE 802.3 compliant

The switch features 8 fast switch ports and one GigE switch/uplink port brought to the card’s P14 rear I/O connector. A second GigE port provides a direct host connection through an on-board Ethernet controller (NIC).

  • Managed or unmanaged operation (unmanaged by default)
  • Layer 2/3 support
  • Onboard management processor
  • Multiple management interfaces
  • VLAN
  • Quality of Service (QOS)

The switch collects information about card and network health, along with temperature data, and makes it available through the host or external GigE ports. Features include:

  • BIT (Built-In Test)
  • Temperature monitoring
  • RMON statistics counter
  • Port mirroring
  • Virtual Cable Tester

The CCPMC form factor allows easy integration with modern embedded computers, including VME, VME-64, cPCI, and VPX systems. Low power consumption and high MTBF ratings make the MPR-ES-1 an ideal choice for rugged, high-availability systems.
