M12-X Ethernet Connector for CPU Cards

Mezzanine Expansion Module

Available as a mezzanine add-on expansion board e.g. to recent CompactPCI® Serial and CompactPCI® PlusIO CPU carrier cards, the S02-M12 provides one or two M12-X style Ethernet connectors as required for railway and many other applications.

The S02-M12 mezzanine card replaces one or two of the triple RJ45 connectors equipped on suitable CPU carrier cards.

The S02-M12 Ethernet ports are 2.5GBASE-T compliant (backwards compatible to 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, and 1000BASE-T). The upper port 1 can be used also in applications where Intel® vPro® is required.

The S02-M12 mezzanine card will be mounted on top of the CPU carrier card, resulting in an 8HP assembly, thus suitable for CompactPCI® Serial backplanes with a right aligned system slot.
