VersaLogic Releases 10Gb Ethernet Expansion Board for PC/104 Systems

(Tualatin, OR – January 17, 2023) VersaLogic Corporation expands its line of industrial temperature, rugged Ethernet expansion products with the new “E9” module. The new dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet expansion board provides an effective and reliable way to add high-speed 10Gb Ethernet to an embedded computer system.

“Customers can now easily add two 10Gb Ethernet ports to embedded systems with reliable, full performance operation even in industrial temperature applications (-40° to +85°C)” said Len Crane, VersaLogic President. “This powerful PCIe expansion board takes thermal management seriously and works flawlessly across the full industrial temperature range.”

Dual Independent 10 Gigabit Ports

The E9 provides two independent IEEE 10Gb Ethernet RJ-45 ports which are backward compatible with slower ports (5GbE, 2.5GbE, and 1GbE).

PCIe/104 Format

The E9 is designed for PCIe/104 “3-bank” stack-down platforms as a plug-in expansion board.

Precision Time Protocol

The E9 includes IEEE 1588/802.1AS Precision Time Protocol support. This enables precise time-synchronization between network nodes in applications such as smart-factory and smart-security.

On-board Magnetic Isolation

Unlike other 10 GbE offerings, the E9 is completely self-contained with on-board magnetic isolation and RJ-45 jacks for ease of integration. There is no need for off-board magnetics, special cabling, or SFP modules.

Industrial Tough

The E9 is built for any application required to function in extreme environments. 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. The EPM-E9E was engineered and validated to perform in real-world applications.

Customizable in Low OEM Quantities

The E9 is customizable, even in low OEM quantities. Customization options include conformal coating, revision locks, custom labeling, customized testing, customized screening, and pre-assembly with VersaLogic’s Sabertooth (EPMe-51) system.

Software Support

The E9 is compatible with a variety of popular operating systems such as Linux and Windows.

Long-term Availability

As with all VersaLogic products, the E9 Dual 10Gb Ethernet expansion board is designed for high reliability and long-term availability (10+ year typical production lifecycle). VersaLogic’s proven design expertise makes the E9 a rock-solid solution for both standard and environmentally-challenged applications.

Pricing and Availability

The E9 (VL-EPM-E9E), is now in stock at VersaLogic Corp. and will be stocked at Digi-Key Corp. shortly. OEM pricing starts at $1,379. Contact Sales@VersaLogic.com for more information.
