HUNTSVILLE, Ala. Abaco Systems, Inc. has announced the SWE440S, an upgrade which builds on the capability of the SWE440A. This fully managed Ethernet switch is designed to align with the SOSA Technical Standard and provide greater interoperability and integration with SBCs, FPGAs, and Ethernet switches while providing cost reduction for customers.

For applications that require 3U technology and alignment with the SOSA Technical Standard, the SWE440S, VP431, and SBC3511 are intended to provide a complete portfolio of products where interoperability has been designed in.

With SoC switch fabric at the core of the design, it is engineered for port flexibility with options for the type of management interface, as well as offering two 10G capable SFP+ cages to the front panel for optical connectivity. 

The SWE440S comes with Abaco's OpenWare 6.4.0 and is designed for configurability. It features the port wizard capabilities of the SWE440A so that the SWE440S can be reconfigured using OpenWare for quantities of 1G, 10G, or 40G ports. This is intended for applications requiring a managed Ethernet switch for use with radar, surveillance, situational awareness, imaging, AI and autonomy, rugged industrial and transportation, and other high-performance embedded computing applications.
