Nano Interface Unit / Rugged Ethernet Switch - NIU

The NIU2A-ES2 is a small, low-power, self-contained Rugged Ethernet Switch system that is ideally suited for military, commercial aerospace and industrial applications requiring a SWaP-optimized solution.

Powered by an integrated MIL-STD-704A (designed to meet) power supply, it is a Layer 3, fully managed switch providing sixteen (16) 10/100/1000Base-T Gigabit Ethernet ports and four (4) optional 10 Gigabit 850 nm multimode fiber-optic ports. Additionally, there is one GbE and one RS-232 port for maintenance / configuration interface.

The NIU2A-ES2 supports Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model data link (L2) and network (L3) layer, quality of service (QoS) and security features. The NIU2A-ES2 rugged switch provides scalable Ethernet links enabling networks including on-board vehicle, marine and aircraft platforms to field and expand digital network architectures for network-centric operations. The NIU2A-ES2 fits seamlessly in NAI’s Configurable Open Systems Architecture™ (COSA®) providing the most modular, agile and rugged COTS portfolio of embedded smart modules, I/O boards, Single Board Computers, Power Supplies and Ruggedized Systems.

  • Supports ES2 Managed Switch Module: 16x 10/100/1000Base-T (Gigabit Ethernet) ports, 4x Fiber Optic (10 Gb @ 850 nm) option, 1x Gigabit Ethernet and 1x RS-232 for maintenance
  • Minimized SWaP footprint: ~7.0" x 3.0" x 2.5" (including connectors), ~2.75 lbs (1.25 kg), 28 VDC input @ ~1.0 A Operating

Accelerate Your Time-to-Mission™ With COSA®

NAI’s Configurable Open Systems Architecture™ (COSA®) offers a choice of over 70 smart I/O, communication, and Ethernet switch functions, providing the highest packaging density and greatest flexibility of any multifunction I/O board in the industry. Preexisting, fully-tested functions can be combined quickly and easily in an unlimited number of ways. Each I/O function has dedicated processing, unburdening the system Single Board Computer (SBC) from unnecessary data management overhead.
