EnsembleSeries™ SFM6126 - High bandwidth switch

6U OpenVPX PCIe Gen3 & Ethernet Switch with I/O Mezzanine Sites & System Management

EnsembleSeries SFM6126 OpenVPX™ PCIe gen 3 switch with innovative capabilities for creating your truly composable data center edge processing architecture for aerospace and defense applications.


Extreme Embedded Switch Fabric Performance

SFM6126 modules switch the control and expansion planes with an efficient PCIe architecture that delivers a performance boost to OpenVPX subsystems. With the versatility of a XMC site for mounting mezzanines, including the EnsembleSeries IOM-400 that distribute wideband I/O transparently and holistically to any other PCIe-connected device – including CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs and storage arrays. This ability to mirror a composable data center architecture is critical for remote deployment of today’s most contemporary AI and other big processing algorithms.

Embedded Composable Data Center



SFM6126 are critical scaling components for your truly composable high performance embedded edge computing (HPEEC) solution. When integrated with other EnsembleSeries OpenVPX compute building blocks, including the latest data center Intel Xeon Scalable blades, powerful GPU co-processing engines, the power of the data center is put into your application. These big data processing solutions are tailorable to your platform and can deployed in the harshest and most SWaP constrained environments.

The Anatomy of a Rugged OpenVPX Module


EnsembleSeries building blocks use proven conduction, liquid and air cooling, rugged packaging and high-speed in-system switch fabric interconnect technologies which are open systems compliant and have a technology readiness level of nine (TRL-9). SFM6126 switches are well suited to your defense system that requires the utmost in reliable processing performance and are available with data center in-chassis fabric performance and optional MOTS+ technology for extreme environmental protection.

Affordable, Interoperable and Upgradable




Place the best technology into the hands of service men and women faster by building your next HPEEC processing solution with EnsembleSeries compute modules that are made with open architectures for interoperability, scalability and re-use. Further drive affordability, performance and lower your program risk by using the architecture that evolves at the speed of technology, follows industry technology roadmaps and leverages data center hardware, software and IP.
