32-Port Fibre Channel FPGA Switch

The 32-Port 1/2/4G Fibre Channel FPGA Switch is a high port-density, completely FPGA-based network switch built for special purpose avionics switching applications. This switch is based on the next generation of New Wave DVÔÇÖs programmable networking hardware.

The 32-Port Fibre Channel FPGA Switch is powered by the latest Xilinx® Virtex® UltraScale®+ FPGA technology. Purpose-built for processing network data in real time, the switch has been optimized to provide the lowest possible latency and the highest possible performance. This provides a port-dense, cost-effective method to implement avionics missions-system networks in development and integration environments.
