CompactPCI® Serial • 7-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch

The SL1-COMBO is a 7-port Gigabit Ethernet switch on a peripheral slot card for CompactPCI® Serial systems. The on-board Marvell® 88E6350R GbE switch is self-managed and provides a rich feature set. While five GbE ports are wired to associated RJ45 front panel jacks, the 6th GbE port is in use for backplane communication via the CompactPCI® Serial connector P6.

As an option, the SL1-COMBO is available with an Intel® I210-IT Gigabit Ethernet controller (NIC) in addition, which is internally connected to the 7th port of the GbE switch. Usage of the NIC requires a PCIe Express® enabled CompactPCI® Serial backplane slot. The Gigabit Ethernet switch provides many features such as 802.1 Audio Video Bridging (AVB) and Quality of Service (QoS) support.


SL1-COMBO • 7-Port GbE Switch

The SL1-COMBO is equipped with a Marvell® 88E6350R Gigabit Ethernet switch. This device provides 5 ports with integrated Ethernet transceivers (PHY) and another two digital interfaces (RGMII).
A total of 7 GbE ports is available on-board, wired to the front panel (5), and the CompactPCI® Serial backplane connector P6 (1). Another port is connected to the on-board Gigabit Ethernet controller.

While the front panel RJ45 jacks are provided with integrated magnetics, the remaining two internal GbE ports are isolated by on-board magnetics modules and equipped with a discrete GbE PHY each.
The SL1-COMBO can be inserted into any CompactPCI® Serial peripheral slot. A single PCI Express® lane would be sufficient for communication via the on-board Gigabit Ethernet controller.
