PowerStream 7000 Switch Module

Product Description

The PowerStream® 7000 Switch Module provides the PowerStream 7000 system with RapidIO connectivity for extreme performance and reliability. In PowerStream 7000 systems, the RapidIO® fabric is formed by switch modules within the chassis card cage. Each switch module provides 24 connections across the passive backplane to processor module slots, and up to four switch modules can be interconnected within a system. The full configuration provides 60 GB/s of peak bisection bandwidth through the backplane and switch modules. The RapidIO interconnect is an open standard certified by ISO and IEC, but only Mercury has the experience to deliver it as a reliable, low-risk, high-performance embedded multiprocessing solution.

*As altitude increases, air density decreases and, therefore, the cooling effect of a particular number of CFM decreases. Different limits can be achieved by trading among altitude, temperature, performance, and airflow. Contact Mercury for more information.
