BOARDS: Industrial net controller uses Quad Fast Ethernet for multiple configurations

MEN Micro Inc. now offers a single-slot, 3U, CompactPCI (CPCI) network controller with Quad Fast Ethernet (QFE) for expanded control of multiple network configurations.

MEN Micro Inc. now offers a single-slot, 3U, CompactPCI (CPCI) network controller with Quad Fast Ethernet (QFE) for expanded control of multiple network configurations including firewalls, gateways, routers and fieldbus data concentrators based on industrial Ethernet.

The new 32-bit, 33 MHz F211 is qualified for an extended temperature range of -40°C to +85°C (-40°F to +185°F), making it ideal for harsh and mobile applications.

The IEEE 802.3u-compliant network controller features four full-duplex/half-duplex channels that support 10Base-T and 100Base-TX physical layers and provide auto-negotiation, collision and link detection with a maximum data transfer of 200 Mbits/s per channel.

Each of the four channels has a unique MAC/IP address, enabling the F211 to function in a redundant mode when the lines are used in parallel, especially useful for high availability systems.

The F211 has a high isolation voltage of 1,500 V and a low power consumption of 3.3 V. The front panel features four standard 8-pin RJ45 connectors. The F211 comes with drivers for Windows, Linux, QNX and VxWorks. Other OS support is available upon request.

Pricing for the F211 is $544. Delivery is six weeks ARO.
