Curtiss-Wright, have created the VLX2500 Series VME-based 6U 8×8 and 16×16 Physical Layers Switches. The Physical Layer Switches allow non-blocking, multi-protocol physical layer switching. Any input can be connected to any output at speeds up to 3.125 Gb/s. With no impact on throughput speed, almost any digital signal can be routed through the VLX2500.
The base VLX2500 switch is a single 6U VME64x card with eight ports. With the addition of an 8-port expansion card, the switch provides 16 ports in two VME slots. Each port input provides an option of clock reconditioning to reduce jitter.
