The Ensemble® IOM-200 (IO Mezzanine) XMC module and IOR-280 RTM from Mercury Computer Systems provide the industry’s leading 10 Gbps ethernet IO density. When two IOM-200s are configured with the IOR-280 rear transition module (RTM), up to eight channels of 10 Gbps Ethernet can be supported per 6 U open VPX slot.
