Manufacturer: Kontron

Designed for operation in latest high speed networks, the PMC240 provides rapid data throughput and most flexible operation.

Two individual channels without the need of a PCI/PCI bridge grant therapidity of this module. The wide bandwidth of this new semiconductor technology with 32/64 bit, 33/66 MHz PCI and/or 66/133 MHz PCI-X operation corresponds to the requirements of even the most demanding of applications.

Developed with the use of the latest technology, the PMC240 has anexcellent reliability, as the SerDes functionality is integrated. By using only one PCB for all available variants, it is very easy to convert or customize it for any application.

Offering the possibility of either one or two channels as well as the support of copper and/or optical transmission, allows a maximum flexibility. Furthermore the PMC240 has an intelligent behaviour throughthe auto detect of 10Base-T, 100Base-TX or 1000Base-T in copper network configurations.
