The XPand1030 system is a low-cost debug, development, and display platform for 3U conduction-cooled cards. It supports one X-ES CompactPCI SBC and the Cisco® 5940 with direct Ethernet and serial I/O access to each board.
The XPand1030 backplane provides CompactPCI bus between the two slots. Ethernet, RS-232 serial I/O, and DVI are routed to RJ-45, micro-DB-9, and HDMI connectors for easy access.
The XPand1030 is the ideal solution for rapid prototyping mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) based on the Cisco® 5940 ESR. The 5940 3U cPCI hardware is complemented by Cisco IOS® Software and Cisco® Mobile Ready Net capabilities. With support for Dynamic Link Exchange Protocol (DLEP), the latest protocol in the Radio Aware Routing (RAR) family of protocols that enable communication between a router and a radio in a mobile ad hoc network, the 5940 provides highly secure yet scalable video, voice, and data services for mobile and embedded outdoor networks.
