3U cPCI I/O & Comm Board w/Gig-E Switch

The 75D4-H2 is a Layer 2+ Gigabit Ethernet Switch built upon NAI’s multifunction, 3U cPCI board technology. The 75D4 motherboard contains a high-density I/O module slot that supports an H2 switch function. The 75D4 with H2 consumes approximately 9.5 W of total power at 5 V to operate at full 1000 Base-T speeds. In addition, the 75D4 motherboard can integrate four channels of RS232/423/422/485 serial communications. This adds an additional 1.5 W of 5 V power. Serial data is available on the cPCI bus or can optionally be available over Ethernet via the use of one of the switch ports.

The 75D4 can also be configured to support a complement of NAIs high-density I/O and communication functions. The module slot is standardized with a relatively large footprint and high-density channel count, enabling up to 48 channels of high functionality, feature-rich programmable discrete on a single 3U board. The low-power/high-performance 75D4-H2 is ideally suited for rugged defense, commercial aerospace, and industrial applications.
