Quad-Port 10GBASE-T Networking Controllers
M12-X Ethernet Front Panel Connectors

The SN4-DJEMBE is a networking adapter card for CompactPCI® Serial systems, equipped with four individual controllers for 10GBASE-T. The front panel is provided with M12-X style Ethernet connectors Cat 6a, as required for railway and many other applications.

The 6-speed mGig controllers with integrated PHYs are designed to support also other network rates 5GBASE-T, 2.5GBASE-T, 1000BASE-T, 100BASE-TX and 10BASE-Te, compliant with the IEEE® 802.3an/bz standard and the NBASE-T™ specification.

The board is equipped with a PCIe® Gen3 packet switch (8 lanes upstream to the backplane connectors). For optimum performance when operated at maximum speed across all ports simultaneously, the SN4-DJEMBE should be positioned in a CompactPCI® Serial backplane fat pipe peripheral slot, PCIe® Gen3 x8.

The single-chip high performance Ethernet controllers Marvell® AQC113 provide latest networking technologies. Drivers are available for Windows 10/11 and Linux.
