With the MICROSPACE PC/104-Plus extension card MSMGE104+, Swiss-based company Digital-Logic is now offering a 1Gbyte LAN controller to connect industrial PC/104-Plus computers and control systems to Ethernet networks.

The 32bit card is based on an i82541 network controller and supports data transmission speeds of 1,000/100/10Mbps. For network access it is equipped with an RJ-45 port. A setup program controls the I/O address section and the IRQ number.

The board consists of an Ethernet IEEE802.3 network interface with 10BASE-2 and 10BASET connections. Selections are performed by setting jumpers or by using software tools supplied with the Ethernet tool disk. Drivers for Windows and Linux are available. The card is connected to the 32bit PCI bus and requires only one PCI resource.

The MSMGE104+ has dimensions of 90mm x 96mm x 17mm and a weight of 100g. It requires a 3.3V power supply and operates within the standard temperature range of -25C to 70C (1Gbyte). On request, it is also available for an extended operating temperature range from -40C to 85C (100Mbytes). The mean time between failures is specified with over 100,000hrs.
