As from now on, all Intel Xeon based CompactPCI Serial CPU boards from EKF are available with additional four M12-X Gigabit Ethernet front panel connectors.
Provided on the SCL-RHYTHM side card, these four ports are wired to individual I210-IT 1000BASE-T controllers for universal networking, including Audio-Video-Bridging enhancements for time-sensitive streams. Together with another two RJ45 GbE connectors on the SC5-FESTIVAL Xeon CPU carrier card, six Ethernet front ports are available in total for the 8HP front panel width assembly. In addition, the SCL-RHYTHM can be equipped with an M.2 2280 NVMe SSD module (PCIe Gen3 x4).
Typical applications are industrial networks in rugged environments, e.g. router, gateway, data acquisition, or edge computing (IoT).
