WinSystems Introduces PPM-GIGE-2 PC/104-Plus Dual Gigabit Ethernet Controller

WinSystems PPM-GIGE-2 PC/104-Plus Dual Gigabit Ethernet Controller

WinSystems introduced the PPM-GIGE-2 PC/104-Plus Dual Gigabit Ethernet Controller. The dual channel module features two Realtek RTL8110 devices. It offers self-stacking I/O expansion on PC/104, EPIC, and EBX SBCs based on the PC/104-Plus form factor. PPM-GIGE-2 is ideal for industrial embedded applications. A single channel version, PPM-GIGE-1, is also available. The two-channel PPM-GIGE-2 is priced at $199 and the single channel PPM-GIGE-1 is priced at $149.

The PPM-GIGE-2 add-in module supports connection to two 10, 100, and 1000 Mbps networks using standard CAT5 twisted pair copper cables (via standard RJ-45 connectors). It supports Windows, Linux, and other x86-compatible operating systems. The PPM-GIGE-2 requires only +5 volts at 500 mA (2.5W). It will operate from -40°C to +85°C. The module measures 90mm x 96mm (3.6″ x 3.8″) and weighs only 88 grams (3 ounces).
