XMC477RC Network Interface Card

XMC477RC Four Channel SFP Gigabit Ethernet Interface

XMC477RC Four Channel SFP Gigabit Ethernet Interface Board


Complete Single-Source SWaP Solution

The XMC477RC is a quad switched mezzanine card (XMC) compatible module providing a 4-channel Gigabit Ethernet Small Form Factor pluggable (SFP) interface. The new XMC is distinguished by its support for four SFP modules for maximum flexibility, allowing customers to choose between 1000Base-X optical or 1000Base-T copper connectivity. When paired with an Abaco single board computer, the XMC477RC delivers a high degree of functional density that can reduce the number of cards in a chassis – eliminating, for example, the requirement for a dedicated Ethernet switch – that can help minimize the size, weight and power (SWaP) of a subsystem.


Form Fit and Function

The XMC477RC provides a simple and highly cost-effective form-, fit- and function compatible upgrade for existing users of the PMC676RC or the PMC677RC who will benefit from a more configurable product with higher throughput.

Fully rugged, with an operating temperature of -40°C to +85°C, the XMC477RC is designed for naval/marine-, land- and air platforms within defense and aerospace markets including fire control systems, airborne mission computers, radar systems and flight control. It supports a high speed link to the host via an x4 PCIe™ connection, allowing all front I/O ports to run at full line rate.


Broad Range of Supported Operating Systems for Simple Integration

The XMC477RC is supported by native drivers for many common operating systems (Microsoft Windows®, Linux®, LynxOS®). Abaco has software drivers for additional operating systems (VxWorks® and Solaris). These drivers have been carefully designed and implemented to fit within the LAN protocol stack of the host operating system; thus, all facilities available from the host operating system can be utilized across the XMC477RC.
