Cost-Effective CompactPCI Switch Done Right
Eching, Germany, March 28, 2007 Kontron announced today its latest CompactPCI Switch, the Kontron CP6925. This PICMG2.16-compliant unmanaged switch is extremely versatile and can be used in a variety of control applications including, rail traffic and energy supply.
The Kontron CP6925, the latest addition to Kontrons 6U CompactPCI family, supports 14x Gigabit Ethernet ports at the rear J3/J5 CompactPCI connector as well as 2x Gigabit Ethernet uplink ports making it ideal for the implementation of structured network segments. Features such as auto negotiation and full duplex communication, make the Kontron CP6925 a highly flexible and configurable Ethernet-switch.
The Kontron CP6925 can be used in applications where several CPU boards are configured into segments in a 19-inch rack system or where a central processor system supervises several distributed controllers. The 6U/4HP CompactPCI Gigabit Ethernet switch has already been deployed in sectors such as safety engineering, energy supply and industrial controls over Ethernet.
The Kontron CP6925 is available now and mass production will begin in Q2, 2007.
