6U OpenVPX Serial RapidIO and Ethernet Switch is a combined management, control and dataplane switch for small, mid-size and large 6U VPX systems.
The VPX6-6902, 6U OpenVPX Serial RapidIO and Ethernet Switch is a combined management, control and dataplane switch for small, mid-size and large 6U VPX systems. Supporting a centralized switch architecture in both star and dual-star topologies, the VPX6-6902 is available with Serial RapidIO (SRIO) switching alone, or with both SRIO dataplane and Ethernet mangement/control plane switching all in a single VPX slot. The VPX6-6902 SRIO switch fabric supports both Gen 1 (1.25, 2.5, 3.125 GBaud) and Gen 2 SRIO (2.5, 5, 6.25 GBaud) data rates. Each of its 28x SRIO ports operates in x4 lane mode, offering up to 20 Gbps throughput per port.
The VPX6-6902 sRIO and Ethernet Switch allows systems integrators to architect small to large high-performance systems following the guidelines provided in the VITA-65 (OpenVPX) systems specification. It can be used in multiple backplane profiles, with up to 24 4-lane Fat Pipes (FP) for SRIO and up to 20 Ultra-Thin Pipes (UTP) for SerDes Gigabit Ethernet on the backplane.
The VPX6-6902 VPX sRIO and Ethernet Switch complements a wide range of Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions VPX modules, including DSP, FPGA, and CPU single board computers, allowing systems integrators to implement extremely high-performance data, control and management plane systems.
