CAES Crosspoint Switch

The UT65CML8X8FC, 3.125Gbps Crosspoint Switch, is a high-speed, protocol independent switch.

Ideal uses include:

  • High-speed serial repeater
  • Signal distribution 
  • Primary and redundant switching 
  • Port replications 
  • Space VPX data plane switching applications

Our UT65CML8X8FC Crosspoint Switch is compatible with the VITA 78 standard by virtue of its enhanced redundancy and fault tolerance, which are critical attributes for HiRel Space systems.

CAES UT65CML8X8FD Evaluation Board

For customer experience and ease of use, we offer an evaluation board, UT64CML8X8FD-EVB, that provides a comprehensive platform for evaluating the crosspoint switch.  To help facilitate the setup, a software graphical user interface is available.
