Description

The VL-MPEe-E4 is an extremely small and rugged module for connecting Gigabit Ethernet Over Fiber optic cables. This industry-standard Mini PCIe module provides an easy and economical way to add a fiber-based Ethernet interface to embedded computer systems.

Ethernet over fiber offers an extremely dependable, highly secure Ethernet connection that operates over a much longer distance than copper. Where security matters, a fiber optic connection excels. Fiber optic cables have no electromagnetic signature, making them very difficult to tap compared to wired connections.

This module supports one bi-directional Ethernet channel using industry standard fiber optic cables with LC connectors. It is designed to be rugged and robust for use in industrial and military applications. The module features a wide operating temperature range (-40° to +85°C) and a metal housing around the transceiver to guard against electro-magnetic interference.

The E4 board is compatible with a variety of popular operating systems including Windows, and Linux.

As with all VersaLogic products, the VL-MPEe-E4 is designed to support OEM applications where high reliability and long-term availability are required. From application design-in support, to 10+ year availability, the VL-MPEe-E4 provides a durable I/O expansion with an excellent cost of ownership.

VersaLogic products are designed for use by OEMs working in a variety of market applications: Aerospace, Defense, Energy, Industrial, Security, Medical, Military, Robotics, and Transportation. VersaLogic delivers extremely reliable standard and customized embedded computers backed with unsurpassed service and the highest availability in the market.
