The TPMC895 is a PCI Mezzanine Card (PMC) compatible module providing a dual or four channel Ethernet 10Base-T / 100Base-TX / 1000Base-T interface.
A transparent 64 bit, up to 133 MHz PCI-X/PCI to PCIe Bridge and a PCIe Switch provide access to the Intel I210IT Gigabit Ethernet controllers. Each Ethernet interface supports 10, 100 and 1000 Mbit/s transmission rates and is equipped with a 16 Mbit Serial Flash to support PXE and iSCSI boot.
The two/four Ethernet interfaces of the TPMC895 are capable of performing an auto negotiation algorithm which allows both link-partners to determine the best link-parameters. The TPMC895 supports IEEE 1588/802.1AS Precision Time Protocol (PTP) and IEEE 802.1Qav Audio/Video Bridging (AVB) traffic shaping (with software extensions).
The TPMC895-10R provides four 10/100/1000 Mbit/s Ethernet connections via front panel RJ45 connectors.
The TPMC895-11R routes four Ethernet ports to the Back I/O P14 connector without any RJ45 connector at the front.
The TPMC895-20R provides two 10/100/1000 Mbit/s Ethernet connections via front panel RJ45 connectors.
The TPMC895-21R routes two Ethernet ports to the Back I/O P14 connector without any RJ45 connector at the front.
The TPMC895-30R is a TPMC895-10R with an additional Back I/O P14 connector for IEEE 1588 auxiliary device connections.
All ports are galvanically isolated from the Ethernet controllers and LEDs on the board indicate the different network activities.
The module meets the requirements to operate in extended temperature range from -40°C to +85°C.
