New 10 Gigabit Ethernet and 6 Gbps SAS/SATA XMC Modules

Concurrent Technologies has released two new XMC modules to provide integrators with a method of introducing 10 Gigabit Ethernet or 6 Gbps SAS/SATA ports into their existing or future systems. XMC modules are widely used to add functionality to a range of modular, open standards based form factor boards including VPX®, VME and CompactPCI® within the defense, security, telecommunications, scientific and industrial markets.

For applications needing high speed networking connectivity, XM 530/x22 provides two 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports. This module supports rear I/O connectivity making it suitable for deployment in harsh environments where boards are typically mounted inside a rugged enclosure with all external connectivity through suitable grade connectors. The conduction cooled version of XM 530/x22 is certified for operation between -40°C and +85°C, has a conformal coating for protection and has been tested to survive harsh levels of shock and vibration.

XM SA1/001 is an XMC module with the capability to connect to four external SAS or SATA 6 Gbps drives via a convenient front panel connector. A typical use would be to mount XM SA1/001 on a Concurrent Technologies’ processor board giving the combined solution the ability to connect to the latest, high speed drives without the need for any rear transition modules. XM SA1/001 is expected to be used in a range of data recorders, database management and video security systems.
