Concurrent Technologies has announced two fabric switch boards to complement its range of single board computers. The FR 331/306 (VPX) and FX 322/0xx (VXS) enable multiple single board computers to inter-communicate, providing backplane connectivity compliant with VITA 46.x and VITA 41.x standards for aerospace, military, industrial and telecommunication secure networks.
The FR 331/306 is a 3U OpenVPX (VITA 65) fabric switch offering Gigabit data transfer rates in a form factor that is fast becoming the bus architecture of choice for many aerospace, defence and harsh environmental deployments. It supports x4 PCI-Express (Gen1 or Gen2), 6 payload boards; DMA on two PCI-E ports and user configuration via RS232.
The FR331/306 is designed to complement the TR 501/36x Core 2 Duo VPX single board computer, as a multi-channel 6U VXS fabric switch operating at multiple Gigabit transfer rates to provide higher bandwidth and lower latency for PCI Express architectures.
The FX 322/0xx supports x4 PCI-Express (Gen1 or Gen2) 6, 12 or 18 payload boards; 2 inter switch ports; 4 SERDES ports and user configuration via RS232. It is designed to complement Concurrent Technologies VX 511/06x Core 2 Duo VXS single board computer.
The FR 311/306 and FX 322/0xx offer high bandwidth, low latency, flexible port architectures to infrastructures requiring high performance and secure connectivity for centralized switching systems, Network Centric Operations (NCO) and data management servers.
