The MIC-6030 is a ruggedized single-slot 3U OpenVPX switch providing high-speed, low-latency interconnects between VPX blades connected to PCI Express and Ethernet backplane fabrics. An ExpressLane™ PEX8733 PCIe Gen3 switch connects to six PCIe Gen3 x4 ports enabling non-transparent and transparent bridging of processor blades for highly flexible multi-host and legacy configurations.
A Marvell® Link Street® 88E6390X Ethernet layer 2 switch with VLAN support switches gigabit Ethernet traffic between VPX blades connected to the Ethernet fabric enabling a linerate control plane.
When configured with optional Mellanox ConnectX®-4 Multi-Host™ Technology and drivers, the MIC-6030 enables high speed communication of up to 10Gbps bandwidth between up to 4 processor VPX blades VPX by transforming the PCIe bus into a programmable network interface, facilitating the development of data communication between boards and eliminating the need to program a more complex DMA interface.
The onboard BMC firmware based on Advantech’s IPMI core technology brings an advanced set of system management features and can be customized when unique features are required. Lightweight switch management is available via the BMC, supporting tagged and untagged VLANs, port-based VLAN, and port status reporting.
Advantech offers standard designs with either convection or conduction-cooling. A conduction-cooled heatsink ensures operation in harsher environments, providing a reliable solution for operation in extended temperatures, and where extreme shock and vibration requirements must be met. The MIC-6030 is compact, light and robust, meeting stringent size, weight, and power (SWAP) demands.
