Innovative Integration announces the FMC-10GE

September 17, 2014
Innovative Integration, a trusted supplier of signal processing and data acquisition hardware and software solutions, announced the FMC-10GE which provides two 10 Gb Ethernet ports on a custom FMC module. Two, standard RJ45 connectors support connection to CAT6e networks providing high speed connectivity to PCs,
servers, embedded computers such as Innovative's ePC products or custom, intelligent IO. Aggregated burst rates of up to 20 Gbps are achievable.
 
The two 10GE ports are fully independent on the module. Monitoring and control signals are mapped to the FMC interface for detection, loss-of-signal, rate and device control. Atypically, the NIC onboard the FMC-10GE is enumerated and controlled as a PCIe device, under the control of the ePC-K7's quad-core i7 processor rather than the systems Kintex 7 FPGA, allowing use of standard Windows/Linux applications to effectively leverage the communications ports. The FMC-10GE works with legacy Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switches and Cat 6e cabling.
 
The combination of FMC-10GE and Innovative ePC-K7 provides a powerful, stand-alone, FPGA-based wireless transceiver.
