Acromag’s XMC631 10-GbE Ethernet Network Interface Card

The new XMC631 module from Acromag is an XMC Ethernet Network Interface
Card providing up to four independent 10-GbE interface ports.

Different models are available for extended temperature operation
and VITA 42/61 connector options to support a PCIe Gen 3 interface.
Four SFP+ ports support optical or copper cabling.

Key features of Acromag’s XMC631 modules include Intel XL710 quad-port
10-gigabit Ethernet controller delivering high performance and powerful
networking capabilities; advanced virtualisation, intelligent offload and
accelerator technologies optimising network performance; and intelligent offloading
features of the XL710 controller combined with the processing power of a Xeon-D
processor delivering outstanding performance and efficiency in an embedded

Designed for COTS applications, these rugged XMC mezzanine modules offer
a high-density, high-performance solution for network interface applications. Acromag’s
XMC631 is ideal for use in defence, aerospace, industrial, and scientific
research computing systems.
