4-Port GbE AMC
One critical element of a MicroTCA system is to get traffic in/out of the system. Otherwise, it would have one expensive bookend on your desk or a door stopper for you lab. The MicroTCA system architecture gives 2 GbE ports (port 0 and 1) to each AMC in the backplane. Would it be nice to get these GbE traffic in/out of the system in the most cost-effective way?
What is this?
This is a very simple 4-port GbE AMC. It has 4 RJ-45 ports in the front so that you can plug in any good ol' Cat5 Ethernet cable. The GbE switch is unmanaged so these ports will have to fight it out.
