The VL-MPEe-E3 is an extremely small and rugged Ethernet module based on the industry-standard Mini PCIe module format. Unlike typical I/O expansion boards, Mini PCIe allows additional I/O functions to be added to a system with almost no increase in overall system/package size. Mini PCIe modules provide a simple, economical, and standardized way to add I/O functions to embedded computer products.
In a very small package, this Ethernet board provides a full speed Gigabit Ethernet port based on the Intel® 82574IT controller.
This rugged product is designed and tested for full industrial temperature operation (-40º to +85ºC). It also meets MIL-STD-202G specifications for shock and vibration. Transient voltage suppression (TVS) devices on the external connections provide enhanced protection from electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage. The latching Ethernet connector provides additional ruggedization, making it at home in harsh environments.
A PXE boot option ROM is included in the EEPROM of this board to enable network booting. Three LED outputs can be individually configured to select the particular event, state, or activity indicated for each output. In addition, each LED can be configured for output polarity and blinking/steady-state indication.
This Ethernet board is compatible with a variety of popular x86 operating systems including Windows, Windows Embedded, Linux, VxWorks, and QNX.
The module utilizes PCIe signaling and can be used in any system that supports PCIe signaling at the Mini PCIe socket.
Product customization is available, even in low quantities. Options include conformal coating, application-specific testing, BOM revision locks, special labeling, etc.
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.
