The integrated Ethernet Switch (iES-6), is a rugged 6 port layer 2 managed gigabit Ethernet switch with end node timing and discrete signal capabilities for demanding test instrumentation environments on airborne, shipboard or mobile ground vehicles.
Programmable or data driven discrete outputs can be used to control end node devices on or off the network as well as feedback into the iES-6 from discrete inputs. With multiple time sources and outputs the iES-6 provides end node device time signals.
iES-6 contains a hardware based IEEE-1588v2 time engine both able to drive the internal IRIG-A/B/GTime Code Generator (TCG) for time outputs. With the IRIG input seeded from GPS the iES-6 can provide a IEEE-1588v2 Master/Grand Master capability. The integrated board stack architecture and front panel allow for user specific functions and connector interfaces to be implemented without compromising system architecture or integrity.
