S-A6640 | Unmanaged Ethernet Switch for Space

The S-A6640 is the space industry’s first standalone SFF Ethernet switch designed and tested for NEO and LEO missions.  The unmanaged Ethernet switch/router features 12×1 GE copper ports and uses IP and Ethernet protocols to help lower costs and significantly improve time-to-market for small satellite constellations as well as manned missions. Packaged in a rad-tolerant SFF, the S-A6440 can be easily installed, and significantly lowers the risk of communication-related failures in space.

In addition to serving as the centerpiece of the Aitech Space Digital Backbone (DBB) architecture for LEO/NEO applications, the new switch operates as the main connectivity hub for any small satellite or human rated space mission, for interconnecting all electronic equipment on board.
