Mercury Ensemble MSW-100

 

Overview 
 
The Mercury Ensemble™ MSW-100 MicroTCA Switch/Hub is a cost-effective foundation for a range of flexible MicroTCA® system configurations. It provides single-module support for three system fabrics: 
  • a Gigabit Ethernet base interface
  • a RapidIO switch fabric (via the Tsi578)
  • an intelligent platform management interface
                          
The MSW-100 can be configured with any combination of Ensemble processing AMCs to create a market-ready high-performance system, suitable for a variety of data-intensive telecommunications applications.
