Ethernet and SMBus combine to deliver data and power management on a single platform - Blog

October 08, 2020

ETHERNET EVERYWHERE BLOG. Because customers need to simplify and economize on space, many networking companies are being asked to move beyond traditional networks and look at ways to combine networking and power management. You’ve got devices that need to share data, but they also need to be powered.  If you are looking at a mobile military platform, Power over Ethernet (PoE) simplifies cabling and reduces the number of devices needed on a platform.


Timing is everything when mobilizing an Ethernet network - Blog

September 10, 2020

ETHERNET EVERYWHERE BLOG. Today we are going to discuss timing and synchronization of devices on an Ethernet network. Synchronization of packet cadence is necessary for time-sensitive applications work like they’re supposed to.


How Ethernet is key to VICTORY - Blog

June 28, 2019
ETHERNET EVERYWHERE BLOG: Adding or enhancing new command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) and electronic warfare (EW) technologies in armed forces? tactical ground vehicles has historically been done through a ?bolt-on? approach. Communications systems have traditionally been independent, siloed systems that lacked integration, futureproofing and as importantly, economies of size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C).

AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2019--CHICAGO. MilSource is launching Techaya?s MILTECH 24FO at AUVSI XPONENTIAL; the fiber-optic-enabled Ethernet switch offers as many as 24 ports in an approximate 8? x 4? x 2? footprint. The part is aimed at use in radar installations, electro-optic sensor suites, persistent wide-area surveillance, and signal-intelligence applications.

Fiber and copper working together for today's Ethernet backbones - Blog

January 31, 2019
ETHERNET EVERYWHERE BLOG: In all mobile military and airborne platforms, the transition from mechanical systems to electronically controlled systems is taking place. As the electronics content continues to grow, so do the processing loads that happen on every platform. Embedded computers are rising in sophistication as they need to support sensors, radar, video streams, and remote-control functions. Distributed processing, the interconnection of devices, and communication between devices has led to an exponential jump in bandwidth requirements on the interconnects between these devices. Traditional protocols like IEEE 1394 and USB still have legacy applications on these platforms, but most new platforms and platform retrofits are turning to Ethernet as their de facto communications protocol, supporting 1 Gbps in most platforms and growing to 10 Gbps in certain payloads.
