New Wave DV introduced the V1160 dual-port, 100G, rugged Ethernet switched mezzanine card (XMC) for radar, signals intelligence (SIGINT), embedded communications, video, storage, and medical-imaging systems.

The card is designed for high-bandwidth and low-latency interface applications that require 10-, 25-, 40-, and 100-Gb Ethernet. The rugged design of the V1160 turns a VPX single-board computer into a single-slot sensor processor.

Featuring the Nvidia Mellanox ConnectX-5 network interface, the V1160 offers hardware offloads for UDP, TCP, RoCE v2, DPDK, and other protocols. Options are available to select optical or electrical Ethernet interfaces, as well as for front-panel I/O or backplane I/O. Backplane electrical interfaces come via Pn6, and backplane optical interfaces come via VITA 66 connectors.

The V1160 is built from the ground up for rugged and harsh environments. This XMC is designed and tested to VITA 47 environmental standards and provides VITA 20-compliant conduction cooling.

It operates in temperature ranges from 40 to 85°C. The V1160 is built to provide a real-time high-bandwidth network interface for next-generation sensor, storage, and communication systems in a rugged and SWaP-C-centric package.
