G211F - Quad Fiber Optics Interface Board

Quad Fiber Optics Ethernet Board

The G211F is a rugged 3U CompactPCI Serial peripheral board. It offers the possibility to implement four optical fiber Ethernet interfaces. The board is equipped with a cage for connection of four SFP transceivers. The cage hosts the optical adapter. The cables are connected to the adapter module. duagon offers an optical transceiver with LC-Duplex connectors as an accessory.

The G211F can be used in combination with a CompactPCI Serial or CompactPCI PlusIO CPU board in a CompactPCI Serial or hybrid system.

1000BASE-SX Channels

All four interfaces are controlled by one Ethernet controller which is connected to the backplane via a x4 PCI Express link and supports the IEEE 802.3x standard. Each interface supports a data transfer rate of 1 Gbit/s if all interfaces are used simultaneously. Two LEDs show the link and activity status of every interface.

Rugged Environments

The G211F is designed for extended operating temperature and prepared for conformal coating for use in harsh and mobile environments.
