PC/104-Plus Dual Channel Gigabit Ethernet Module
Page 1 of 1
A two-channel, Gigabit Ethernet LAN module is designed to offer flexible, high-performance networking connectivity for industrial embedded applications. The PPM-GIGE-2 from WinSystems offers self-stacking I/O expansion on PC/104, EPIC and EBX SBCs based on the industry-standard PC/104-Plus form factor. This add-in module uses standard RJ-45 connectors to plug into 10/100/1000 Mbit/s networks using standard Category 5 (CAT5) unshielded twisted pair (UTP) copper cables.
Two Realtek RTL8110s are the Ethernet controllers used by the PPM-GIGE-2. They are supported by a wide range of operating systems including Windows, Linux and other x86 real-time operating systems. These onboard Gigabit Ethernet controllers combine a triple-speed, IEEE 802.3-compliant Media Access Controller (MAC) with a triple-speed Ethernet transceiver, 32-bit PCI bus controller and embedded memory. With state of-the-art DSP technology and mixed-mode signal technology, it offers high-speed transmission over CAT 5 UTP cable. Functions such as crossover detection and auto-correction, polarity correction, adaptive equalization, cross-talk cancellation, echo cancellation, timing recovery and error correction are implemented to provide robust transmission and reception capability at gigabit data speeds.
The PPM-GIGE-2 requires only +5 volts at 500 mA (2.5W). It will operate from -40°C to +85°C. The module measures 90 mm x 96 mm (3.6” x 3.8”) and weighs only 88 grams (3 ounces). WinSystems also offers a single channel version of this board called the PPM-GIGE-1.Quantity one pricing for the dual channel PPM-GIGE-2 is $199, and $149 for the single channel PPM-GIGE-1.
