The TXMC895 is a Switched Mezzanine Card (XMC) compatible module providing a four channel Ethernet 10Base-T / 100Base-TX / 1000Base-T interface.

A PCIe Switch provides 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 four Ethernet interfaces of the TXMC895 are capable of performing an auto negotiation algorithm which allows both link-partners to determine the best link-parameters. The TXMC895 supports IEEE 1588/802.1AS Precision Time Protocol (PTP) and IEEE 802.1Qav Audio/Video Bridging (AVB) traffic shaping (with software extensions).

The TXMC895-10R provides four 10/100/1000 Mbit/s Ethernet connections via front panel RJ45 connectors.

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.
