8-port Gigabit Ethernet switch is customisable

May 04, 2017 // By Julien Happich
LDD Technology has introduced a customisable Gigabit Ethernet switch module for industrial, commercial and building automation data services.

 The standard LDD-ES8 module is an 8-port unmanaged Ethernet Switch on a PC/104-Plus form factor intended for use in embedded applications. It features a high performance, low latency, switch able to handle full-rate gigabit packets on all ports simultaneously.

Auto-negotiation allows each port to operate at 10/100/1000 Mbits with dual LEDs per port to indicate negotiated speed and link activity. Power is provided from the PC/104 stack or through a Molex Microclasp connector. The LDD-ES8 module is designed for fully independent operation but a USB port is provided to allow monitoring of port performance if required. Power consumption is typically 5W with all ports operating at 1 Gbit/s. LDD Technology is able to offer an efficient and cost-effective customisation service in the event that customers require a design with a different number of ports or in a different form factor. The module has been designed using programmable FPGA technology which offers end users a further range of customisation options not normally found on competitive products based on dedicated devices with limited programmability.
