August 1st, 2012 – ADL Embedded Solutions Inc., a leading provider of customizable, high-performance embedded solutions for demanding thermal and rugged environments, today has announced the ADLLAN-41000e. The ADLLAN-41000e employs the Intel i350-AM4 quad port Gigabit Ethernet controller to bring server class connectivity to PCI/104-Express. With the PCIe V2.0 interface, four Gigabit LAN ports can operate at Gigabit speed while consuming just one PCI Express lane (x1). An additional three ADLLAN-41000e boards may be used in a stack for a total of 16 available Ethernet ports, loading 4 PCIe x1 lanes. This brings true server capability to the PC/104 form factor.
As expected, the ADLLAN-41000e is also backward compatible with PCIe V1.0 signaling platforms, albeit at less than 1 Gigabit per port. The ADLLAN-41000e also provides a maximum of two additional USB 2.0 ports via the Type 1 PCIe bus interface from the host SBC. Since the USB ports are not implemented using an independent USB controller, only two ports will be available in configurations that use more than one ADLLAN-41000e.
According to JC Ramirez, ADL Embedded Solutions Product Manager, “The ADLLAN-41000e is well poised to take full advantage of next generation SBCs utilizing second and third generation Intel® Core™ processors with PCIe V2.0 I/O bandwidth such as the ADLQM67PC. Early interest includes applications ranging from military-grade minirouters–requiring ruggeddization and extended temperature–to ethernet-based surveillance systems and other industrial networking applications.”
