XMC-6280 - 10-GbE Interface XMC Module

Acromag's XMC-6280 provides a 10-gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) interface solution for data-intensive real-time embedded computing systems. Ultra-high performance is achieved using a hardware-based TCP/IP offload engine (TOE processor). 


Implementing the TOE fully in hardware relieves the CPU from TCP/IP overhead, and frees it to perform other tasks. The TCP offload removes network bottlenecks to ensure determinism and reliability with low latency, even under high loads.



  • Quad 10 GbE interface via SFP+ ports
  • XMC PCI Express Gen2 x8
  • Supports up to 1M connections
  • Full offload support for: TCP, UDP, iSCSI, and FCoE (Fiber Channel over Ethernet)
  • Low processor overhead
  • Very low Ethernet latency
  • High-level determinism
  • Zero-copy direct data placement
  • Traffic filtering and management

Model VSC/900 - Universal Video Format Converter


The Model VSC/900 provides scan conversion and mixing for any video input signals. The unit's capabilities include conversion of any input to any output format up to 2K x 2K. In addition to operating with VESA, HD, and SD signals, the unit provides conversion and mixing of stroke (vector) video signals.The VSC/900 has an integrated mixer/keyer for combining computer graphics and video. An optional video encoder can be included to provide video-over-IP functionality. This is an H.264 AVC encoder providing an MPEG-2 compliant transport stream over a fully configurable IP network. 



  • Multi-format scan conversion 
  • Input/output resolutions up to 2K x 2K 
  • Full range of analog and digital inputs and outputs 
  • Mix and synchronize different video standards 
  • Optional: Video-over-IP; H.264 video compression w/ MPEG-2 compliant TS multiplexing 
  • Fully configurable network interface 
  • Front panel, or command line control (RS-232 or Ethernet) 
  • 1RU Package 
  • +10OC to +71OC operation
