The Compact GigaBit Switch

GigaBlox is a tiny form factor GigaBit ethernet switch with five 10/100/1000M ports, designed for space, weight, and power (SWaP) limited applications.

We developed it specifically to address the need for high data throughput inside small internal volumes, a common problem for drones and robots.

GigaBlox has an overall size of 45mm x 45mm, and runs from a very wide input voltage from 6 to 60V (tolerant up to 65V).

Plug and play GigaBit Connectivity

GigaBlox is an unmanaged switch and works straight out the box with zero setup required. All you need to do is.

Apply a 6-55V DC supply.

Connect your devices using the included cable set.

GigaBlox will perform autonegotiation to select the fastest speed for each connected device, then automatically begin switching.

GigaBlox's switch engine uses a non-blocking fabric, meaning that all five ports are capable of 1Gbps simultaneously. This is crucial for applications with multiple streams of data, typical in camera-based systems.

Dimensions

We've squeezed all necessary Ethernet circuitry into GigaBlox without making performance compromises. We use magnetics for improved signal integrity and electrical isolation between each ethernet bus.

Cabling

We use Molex Picoblade connectors on all our boards to keep them tiny, and we include all the cables needed to get started, which are…

1 x GigaBlox to GigaBlox Coupler (Molex male to Molex male)

Use this cable to connect two GigaBlox together to form a larger network.

5 x GigaBlox to RJ-45 Network cables (Molex male to RJ-45)

Use this cable to connect any external ethernet device with an RJ-45 port.

1 x SwitchBlox Power Cabes (Molex male to tinned wires)

Use this cable to connect a 6 - 60V DC power supply to power SwitchBlox. (Input is tolerant up to 65V in a pinch).
