SwitchBlox - Small Ethernet Switch
SwitchBlox Nano is the smallest ethernet switch currently available, with three 10/100MB ethernet ports in the size of a quarter coin.
With an overall size of 25.5mm (1 inch) by 25.5mm (1 inch), SwitchBlox Nano is designed for truly space-constrained applications that need compact, robust ethernet connectivity.
SwitchBlox Nano runs from a wide input voltage of 5 to 45V and outputs an auxiliary 5V, 1A output. These features make SwitchBlox Nano ideal limited internal volumes.
As an unmanaged network switch it works straight out the box, all you need to do is...
By utilising surface mount transformers, and a dense layout we've squeezed three ethernet ports into a 1x1 inch square. SwitchBlox Nano boards are fully tested to perform data rates of up 100MB/s.
We use Molex Picoblade connectors on all our boards to keep them tiny. All boards ship with a cable set included, which consists of...
3 x PicoBlade to RJ-45 300mm (SKU: BB-PBRJ1-4-0.3)
1 x PicoBlade to bare wires 300mm (SKU: BB-PBTL1-4-0.3)
SwitchBlox Nano has an STM32 microcontroller onboard, allowing basic switch management functions such as VLAN (port and tag based) and Port Mirroring.
This allows the creation of a very small traffic sniffer or VLAN tag stripper.
