F211 – 3U CompactPCI® Quad Fast Ethernet Interface

F211 – 3U CompactPCI® Quad Fast Ethernet Interface

The F211 is a single Eurocard CompactPCI® networking controller that needs only one slot on the CompactPCI® bus.

The four Fast Ethernet channels on one card occupy four individual MAC/IP addresses. They support full-duplex or half-duplex with 10Base-T and 100Base-TX physical layers for distances up to 100 m. Featuring auto-negotiation, collision and link detection the maximum data transfer rate per channel is 200 Mbits/s with fullduplex operation.

The Ethernet channels on the F211 can be used individually as well as in redundant mode for high availability systems by using some of the Ethernet ports in parallel.

The F211 has been designed for rugged and mobile applications with demand for multiple network controllers such as firewalls, gateways, routers, or as a fieldbus data concentrator based on industrial Ethernet.

The F211 is qualified for extended operation temperature and prepared for conformal coating for use in harsh and mobile environments.

Functional Description

2.2.3

General

Ethernet is a local-area network (LAN) protocol that uses a bus or star topology and supports data transfer rates of 100Mbps and more. The Ethernet specification served as the basis for the IEEE 802.3 standard, which specifies the physical and lower software layers. Ethernet uses the CSMA/CD access method to handle simultaneous demands. It is one of the most widely implemented LAN standards.

Ethernet networks provide high-speed data exchange in areas that require economical connection to a local communication medium carrying bursty traffic at high-peak data rates.

A classic Ethernet system consists of a backbone cable and connecting hardware

(e.g. transceivers), which links the controllers of the individual stations via transceiver (transmitter-receiver) cables to this backbone cable and thus permits communication between the stations.

2.2.4

10Base-T

10Base-T is one of several adaptations of the Ethernet (IEEE 802.3) standard for

Local Area Networks (LANs). The 10Base-T standard (also called Twisted Pair

Ethernet) uses a twisted-pair cable with maximum lengths of 100 meters. The cable is thinner and more flexible than the coaxial cable used for the 10Base-2 or

10Base-5 standards. Since it is also cheaper, it is the preferable solution for costsensitive applications.

Cables in the 10Base-T system connect with RJ45 connectors. A star topology is common with 12 or more computers connected directly to a hub or concentrator.

The 10Base-T system operates at 10Mbps and uses baseband transmission methods.

2.2.5

100Base-T

The 100Base-T networking standard supports data transfer rates up to 100Mbps.

100Base-T is actually based on the older Ethernet standard. Because it is 10 times faster than Ethernet, it is often referred to as Fast Ethernet. Officially, the 100Base-T standard is IEEE 802.3u.

Like Ethernet, 100Base-T is based on the CSMA/CD LAN access method. There are several different cabling schemes that can be used with 100Base-T, e.g.

100Base-TX, with two pairs of high-quality twisted-pair wires.

Functional Description

2.2.6

Ethernet Controller

The KSZ8841-PMQL is a single-port Fast Ethernet MAC chip with a 32-bit/33-

MHz PCI processor interface. It is designed to be fully compliant with the IEEE

802.3u standard.

Physical signal transmission and reception are enhanced through the use of analog circuitry, making the design more efficient and allowing for lower power consumption.

The KSZ8841-PMQL is a mixed-signal analog/digital device offering Wake-on-

LAN technology. Its extensive feature set includes management information base

(MIB) counters and CPU control/data interfaces.

The controller includes a unique cable diagnostics feature called LinkMD. This feature calculates the length of the cabling plant and determines if there is an open/ short condition in the cable. Accompanying software allows the cable length and cable conditions to be conveniently displayed. In addition, the controller supports

Auto-MDIX, eliminating the need to differentiate between straight or crossover cables in applications.

Main Features

• Fully compliant with the IEEE 802.3u standard

• Supports 10/100Base-T/TX

• Supports IEEE 802.3x full-duplex flow control and half-duplex backpressure collision flow control

• Supports burst data transfers

• 8 KB internal memory for RX/TX FIFO buffers

• Early TX/RX functions to minimize latency through the device

• Dynamic buffer memory scheme

• LinkMD cable diagnostic capabilities to determine cable length and distance to fault, and to diagnose faulty cables

• Wake-on-LAN technology

• Auto MDIX crossover with disable and enable option

• Enhanced power management feature with power-down feature

CompactPCI Interface

The F211 supports a 32-bit 33-MHz CompactPCI interface fully compatible with

CompactPCI specification PICMG 2.0 Rev. 3.0. It is a universal board and can be used in a +3.3 V or +5 V signaling environment.

For full CompactPCI functionality only the J1 connector is needed, therefore the board only has a J1 connector to the bus.

Connector type of J1:

• 110-pin shielded, 2mm-pitch, 5-row receptacle according to IEC 917 and IEC

1076-4-101

The pin assignment of connector J1 as defined in the CompactPCI specification will not be repeated here.
