Powerful Embedding Technology

Providing rugged, I/O-rich embedded computing solutions to companies in a broad range of markets, including transportation, energy, aerospace, defense, manufacturing, medical and research.

Diamond's extensive product line includes compact, highly integrated single board computers (SBCs); an extensive line of expansion modules for analog and digital I/O, wired and wireless communications including multiprotocol serial ports and Ethernet switches, GPS, solid-state disk, and power supply functions; and complete, rugged, system-level solutions.

Their products are based on industry-standard embedded buses and form-factors such as PC/104, EBX, EMX, EPIC, ETX, and COM Express.

Their extensive line of I/O expansion modules includes analog and digital I/O, counter/timers, serial communications, wired and wireless networking, GPS, solid-state disk, and DC/DC power supply functions.

Diamond Systems and NVIDIA Jetson redefine embedded computing possibilities.
Diamond offers low-cost, ruggedness, and rich I/O carrier boards and systems. Diamond, an expert in the industry, also develops custom solutions.

Diamond Systems’ EPSM Modules simplify design effort and reduce time to market for custom Ethernet switch boards and systems

The new EPSM-10GX4 is a managed Ethernet switch module in an ultra-compact size offering 24 10/100/1000Mbps copper ports + 4 10Gbps SFI ports. In the same manner as a COM simplifying the development of an embedded computer, EPSM-10GX4 dramatically reduces development time, cost, and risk while providing instant access to a rich range of software features without any programming required. The core Ethernet switching technology is almost fully encapsulated on the module; for many applications, only the "last inch" of magnetics and I/O connectors is required on the carrier board, enabling easy development of carrier boards and systems.

EPSM-10GX4 is designed to meet the challenges of vehicle and other harsh environments with its 50% thicker PCB, -40/+85°C operating temperature range, and MIL-STD-202G shock/vibration resistance.

Size 55 x 84mm / 2.2 x 3.3”
Layer 3 capable Ethernet router/switch IC
24 1Gbps ports
4 10Gbps ports can work with SFP+ sockets or rugged 10Gbps transceivers on carrier board
Supports IEEE-1588 Precision Time Protocol

Its small size makes EPSM-10GX4 a perfect choice for a building block to create custom Ethernet switch solutions in a variety of space-demanding applications, such as drones, ground and underwater vehicles, and robotics.

For customers seeking to avoid engineering development altogether, Diamond’s
EPS-24G4X implements all of the EPSM-10GX4’s features in a rugged board-level product, with integrated latching I/O connectors and SFP+ sockets.

EPS-24G4X complete board-level Ethernet switch solution using EPSM-10GX4 module
Custom carrier design and manufacturing services available

Diamond also offers the EPS-12000-CM, an ultra-compact Ethernet switch module (same size as COM Express Mini) offering 12 10/100/1000Mbps copper twisted pair ports.

EPS-12000-CM is ideal for rugged applications including industrial, on-vehicle and military, where space is at a premium.

Diamond’s SabreNet product family
offers complete rugged box-level switching solutions based on the module.

SabreNet 12000 - rugged Ethernet switches feature multiple port counts and both copper and fiber technologies

Two embedded software packages are available, Layer 2+ switching and Layer 3 routing/switching. In addition, IEEE1588 precision time protocol (PTP) is supported in the Layer 3 software.
