Dual-channel networking compatible module
Tews Technologies’ TXMC888 is a switched mezzanine card (XMC) compatible module designed for transportation, communications, and process control applications. It provides a two-channel 10 Gigabit Ethernet enhanced small form factor pluggable (SFP+) interface. The controller is equipped with a 1 Mbit serial flash memory for Boot ROM and a 128 Kbit EEPROM storing configuration data. LEDs in the front panel indicate the different network activities. The XMC-Connector P15 provides access to the Intel 82599ES dual port 10GbE controller via an x8 PCIe link. The TXMC888’s SFP+ Cages accept various SFP and SFP+ transceiver modules which are available directly from the respective manufacturers. These two SFP+ hosts are connected to the Ethernet Controller’s SFI Interfaces. The TXMC888-10R provides two 10GbE Interfaces via front panel SFP+ connectors.
