PC/104-Plus Two-Channel Gigabit Ethernet Card Supports Power over Ethernet (PoE)
-40°C to +85°C Module Provides Networking and Power for Embedded Applications
March 27, 2013 – WINSYSTEMS, a leading designer and manufacturer of rugged, extended temperature embedded computer modules, introduces the PPM-GIGE-2-PoE. This PC/104-Plus module integrates two independent Gigabit Ethernet ports with Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) circuits. It is ideal to source two remote tethered 802.3af/at compliant PoE devices supporting up to 25W each from an external DC source. Application areas include security, transportation, and industrial control where centralized power can simplify integration and reduce wiring costs.
Implemented as a PC/104-Plus add-in I/O module, the PPM-GIGE-2-POE can manage power to remotely located PoE devices or board stacks. Both PoE interfaces can use separate external DC supplies or share a single external power source. The PoE controller for each channel goes through a detection, discovery, and classification process each time a network cable is attached or removed. The controller additionally provides input undervoltage lockout, input overvoltage lockout, over temperature detection, output voltage slew-rate limit during startup and LED status indication on each port. This protection operates automatically without the need of software.
The PPM-GIGE-2-POE is based on two Realtek RTL8110s Gigabit Ethernet controllers. These controllers combine triple-speed, IEEE 802.3-compliant Media Access Controller with an Ethernet transceiver, 32-bit PCI bus controller, and embedded memory. The Ethernet controllers are compliant with the IEEE 802.3at specification for 10/100Mbps Ethernet and the IEEE 802.3ab specification for 1000Mbps Ethernet. This module uses RJ-45 connectors to plug into 10/100/1000Mbps networks using standard Category 5 (CAT5) unshielded twisted pair (UTP) copper cables.
The PPM-GIGE-2-POE supports Windows®, Linux, and other x86 real-time operating systems. This module operates over the industrial temperature range of -40°C to +85°C without a fan. It measures 3.6 x 3.8 inches (90mm x 96mm). WINSYSTEMS offers additional single and dual channel modules with or without the PoE supply.
The PPM-GIGE-2-POE supports Linux, Windows, and other x86-compatible real-time operating systems. Free drivers are available from the WINSYSTEMS’ website.
