Space – Ethernet Switches
Since developing the space industry’s first COTS, radiation-tolerant, Layer 2 Gigabit Ethernet switch, Aitech has continued to develop available features for this critical system element. In fact, we’re proud to offer the only Layer 2 Gigabit managed or unmanaged Ethernet Switches designed for manned/unmanned space applications.
All our space-rated switches quickly and reliably transfer data and offer on-board memory as well as key function redundancy implemented in a rad-hard FPGA. We provide a range of options, including Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet throughput, Layer 2/3 switching, manages and unmanaged versions as well as air-cooled and conduction-cooled formats. These PMCs operate in a variety of harsh space environments including low earth orbit (LEO), Mars terrestrial and geostationary earth orbit (GEO).
