Conduction Cooled, 16 Fast and 2 Gigabit Ethernet Ports

The COM-8000 is an ultra-rugged conduction-cooled 6U single-slot VME Ethernet Switch card compliant with IPv6 traffic and developed for command & control / situational awareness subsystems based on VMEbus architecture. Designed for continuous extended temperature operation over the range of -40 to +85C and MIL-STD-810G shock and vibration profiles per jet-helo aircraft conditions, the COM-8000 incorporates a reliable mechanical design with an integrated heatsink/ board stiffener, wedgelocks, and injector/ejector handles.

Featuring a non-blocking Ethernet switch architecture, the COM-8000 supports simple plug-and-play operation with auto-MDI-MDIX network installation for up to 18 computing devices. It comes standard in an unmanaged configuration with sixteen (16) 10/100 Fast Ethernet ports brought out through P2 VME user connector and optionally also two (2) 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet ports on the front panel available through either locking Molex headers or RJ-45 connectors.

The card integrates fully independent media access controllers (MACs), an embedded frame buffer memory, and a high-speed address lookup engine, along with support for auto-crossover, auto-polarity, autonegotiation, and bridge loop prevention.

This Commercial-Off-the-Shelf (COTS) card can also be custom ordered in configurations that support VITA 31.1 (switched fabric GigE over VMEbus) as well as onboard management over RS-232 Serial or outof- band 10/100 Ethernet with various firmware options for VLAN (portbased / 802.1Q tagged), Port Mirroring, Class of Service/ 802.1p Quality of Service, Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol, and/or Telnet Server.
