10 Gigabit Ethernet XMC Module

XMC Module

Introducing Acromag’s XMC630 Series, a XMC Module solution for high-performance network connectivity. Firstly, this 10-Gigabit Ethernet XMC Module boasts exceptional features.  Including quad SFP+ ports or dual XAUI rear I/O, with support for a PCIe x8 Gen3 interface.  In addition, it is designed for seamless integration.  Available in both convection and conduction-cooled versions.  Therefore, catering to front or backplane connections to Intel’s XL710 Ethernet Controller.

Choose from two XMC Module models.

The air-cooled XMC631 model showcases four SFP+ connectors on the front panel, accommodating fibre optic or copper media transceivers. On the other hand, the rear I/O model XMC632 routes two XAUI interfaces to the P16 connector, catering to conduction-cooling frames. Optional VITA 61 connectors enable PCI Express 3.0 data rates across eight high-speed serial lanes on the XMC P15 connector.

What Industry Sectors would use these XMC Modules?

Perfect for defence, aerospace, industrial, and scientific research computing systems. In addition, they work even under extended temperatures ranging from -40 to 85°C.

The Intel XL710 4-port 10-gigabit Ethernet Controller.

Harnessing the power of Intel’s advanced XL710 4-port 10-gigabit Ethernet controller, these XMC modules are engineered for optimal network performance. Intelligent off-loading, innovative virtualisation, and advanced traffic direction are just a few features that enhance their capabilities.

In synergy with a Xeon-D processor, these Intel devices offer a balanced hybrid solution for better performance and reduced bottlenecks. With TCP stateless off-loads, the XL710 demonstrates its prowess without limiting feature usage. Additional features include precision timing, Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), and dynamic load balancing, all contributing to an enriched experience.

SFP+ Port Connections

The four SFP+ ports support various connections, including 10GBASE-SR, 10GBASE-LR, 10GBASE-T, and 10GSFP+Cu. In rugged systems, the dual XAUI interface provides cost-effective, low-power 10 GbE chip-to-chip communication over the backplane.

Software support is available for Linux® and Windows® systems.

Experience exceptional networking capabilities with Acromag’s XMC630 Series, setting a new standard for performance and connectivity. Whether you’re looking for a high-speed networking solution, rugged embedded computing, or advanced off-loading capabilities, these XMC modules deliver the results.
