The TCPS892 is a 3U CompactPCI Serial module providing a four channel Ethernet 10Base-T / 100Base-TX / 1000Base-T interface.
The Intel I350 provides integrated PHYs that support 10, 100 and 1000 Mbit/s transmission rates and is equipped with a 1 Mbit Serial Flash to support PXE and iSCSI boot.
The four Ethernet interfaces of the TCPS892 are capable of performing an auto negotiation algorithm which allows both link-partners to determine the best link-parameters. The TCPS892 supports IEEE 1588/802.1AS Precision Time Protocol (PTP).
The controller is equipped with a 128 Kbit EEPROM storing configuration data. LEDs in the front panel indicate the different network activities.
All ports are galvanically isolated from the Ethernet controllers and are routed to the P3 rear I/O connector.
An accompanying CompactPCI Serial 3U Rear Board TCPS007-TM with reconstruction filters and four RJ45 connectors is available.
