10 Gigabit Ethernet with a 96% Smaller Foot Print

Today, we announced the availability of the new Techaya MILTECH 9124 and MILTECH 9128 board-level, ultra-compact Ethernet switches. These conformally coated, Layer 2/Layer 3, 24- and 28-port 1 GbE and 10 GbE Ethernet switch/routers are designed specifically as embedded solutions for military, avionic and commercial communications platforms.

As military and avionic platforms carry a growing number of intelligence devices, such as infrared scanners, sensors, cameras and storage, they must be able to accommodate their space requirements plus the communications platform between the devices.  SWaP is becoming key. The industry is basically calling for a shrinking footprint of everything. By creating a board-level Ethernet switch, we’re allowing developers and engineers to embed their switch on their comms platform and deliver military-grade Ethernet switching capabilities in a footprint that is up to 96% smaller than previous generation rack-mount Ethernet switches.

The MILTECH 9128 features a class-leading 24 triple-speed (10/100/1000Mbps) ports plus four 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) fiber optic ports on a form factor of 3.55 x 3.55 inches. The MILTECH 9124 features 24 triple-speed (10/100/1000Mbps) ports with dimensions of 2.55 x 3.55 inches. Both come with board-to-board connectors and are designed to withstand working temperatures of -40°C to +85°C and will comply with MIL-STD-810 & MIL-STD-461 when incorporated in a suitable enclosure.

The MILTECH 9124 is available now for evaluation and testing.  The MILTECH 9128 will be available Q1 of 2016.
