Swiss Made 10Gbit LAN expansion for PIP and MXCS


 PIP Option  MXCS Option

The UNIXET is MPL’s dual 10GbE interface expansion. The expansion is designed to be used in combination with the PIP4x and the MXCS platforms. Both Ethernet interfaces support all Ethernet speeds from 10Mb to 10Gb on the integrated RJ45 Connectors. On the PCB are populated a total of 4 dual color LED’s to show Link and Activity information’s of the Ethernet interfaces.

Additionally, the UNIXET has two µSERLED connectors for Pass-through of the µSERLED I2C Signals and injection of the Link and Activity signals into the µSERLED. The UNIXET also features a second PCIe104 Connector on the top layer to Pass-through the unused 8 Lanes of the PEG Port as well as the additional 4 single lane PCIe Ports and the Power Rails of the PCIe104 connector.

Rugged Gigabit Ethernet Controller (UNIGET)

UNIXET Highlights

These features make the UNIXET Family ideally suited for any rugged industrial or defense network applications. Due to the low power consumption, robust and flexible design, the products are well suited for embedded systems even in extended temperature environments. The UNIXET makes it easy to set up a challenging network gateway with all flavors and can also be combined with our rugged Switch Family.
* Typically 10 years or more, 20+ years repair-ability (after first introduction)
