VersaLogic releases 2.5 Gigabit TSN Ethernet expansion module

(Tualatin, OR – May 9, 2023) VersaLogic Corporation has expanded its line of industrial temperature, rugged Ethernet expansion products with the new “E7” module. The new 2.5 Gigabit TSN Ethernet expansion module is rated for full -40° to +85°C operation. It provides an effective and reliable way to add two high-speed 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet channels to an embedded computer system.

“Customers can now easily add two 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet ports to embedded systems with reliable, full performance operation with TSN capabilities even in industrial temperature applications (-40° to +85°C),” said Len Crane, VersaLogic President. “This powerful Mini PCIe expansion board takes thermal management seriously and works flawlessly across the full industrial temperature range.”

Dual independent Gigabit ports

The E7 provides two independent IEEE 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet ports and is backward compatible with slower standards (10BASE-TE/100BASE-TX/1000BASE-T).


The E7 supports time-sensitive networking (TSN), when paired with TSN-capable processors.

Mini PCIe format

The E7 is a compact form factor ideal for size and weight-optimized applications.

On-board Magnetic Isolation

Unlike other Ethernet expansion offerings, the E7 is self-contained with onboard magnetic isolation, eliminating the need for off-board magnetic paddleboards.

Industrial Tough

The E7 is built for mission-critical applications where full functionality in extreme environments required. Fully tested thermal management assures reliable operation over the full industrial temperature range (-40° to +85°C). Latching connectors, soldered-down transceivers, and MIL-STD-202H shock and vibration testing ensure performance in the most demanding conditions.

Customizable in Low OEM Quantities

The E7 is customizable, even in low OEM quantities. Customization options include conformal coating, revision locks, custom labeling, customized testing, and customized screening.

Software Support

The E7 is compatible with a variety of popular operating systems, such as Linux and Windows.

Long-term Availability

As with all VersaLogic products, the E7 Dual Gigabit Ethernet expansion module is designed for high reliability and long-term availability (10+ year typical production lifecycle). VersaLogic’s proven design expertise makes the E7 a rock-solid solution for both standard and environmentally-challenged applications.

Pricing and Availability

The E7 (VL-MPEe-E7E and VL-MPEe-E7S) is now in stock at VersaLogic Corp. and will be stocked at Digi-Key Corp. shortly. OEM pricing starts at $172. Contact Sales@VersaLogic.com or visit VersaLogic.com for more information.
