Astronics Ballard Technology

Description :

The MPR-ES-1 is a full-featured managed or unmanaged Ethernet switch implemented on a rugged, rear I/O, PMC card. The switch is ideal for embedded networking applications in both conduction and convection cooled systems.

The 10-port switch includes eight (8) 10/100 Mbps switch ports and one 10/100/1000 Mbps switch/uplink port brought to the card's P14 rear I/O connector for use in either 'in-chassis' or external networking applications. A second 10/100/1000 Mbps switch port connects to an on-board Ethernet controller that provides the host computer with a direct connection to the switch.

This Ethernet switch card can be installed directly into the PMC site of an embedded system. It is also available in a stand-alone rugged Ethernet switch box or factory-integrated into Astronics Ballard Technology's AB2000 Series Avionics BusBox®.
