Managed Serial RapidIO and Ethernet Switching

The Ensemble™ 5000 Series VXS SFM5100 switch module is a VITA 41-compliant switch board that provides full inter-board Serial RapidIO® and Gigabit Ethernet connections in a VXS system. The module's two-level hierarchy of seven 8-port Serial RapidIO crossbars provide simultaneous, bi-directional connectivity for up to 18 VXS payload modules at up to 1.25 GB/s per link. Additionally, the SFM5100 provides Gigabit Ethernet switching for up to 18 VXS payload slots via the onboard Broadcom® BCM56312 Level 2 managed switch; while up to two front-panel Gigabit Ethernet ports allow external Ethernet traffic to access to the backplane Ethernet links. Onboard system management capabilities enable management of an entire VXS system from a single point.
