SwitchBlox is a small ethernet switch with five ports designed for size constrained and tough environments.
With an overall size of 44.5mm (1.75 inches) by 44.5mm (1.75 inches), SwitchBlox is the smallest network switch in the world, making it perfect for robots, drones or any space limited network application.
As an unmanaged network switch it works straight out the box, all you need to do is…
Apply a 7 to 40V DC supply. Connect your devices using the included cable set. It will automatically begin forwarding packets, no coding or setup needed. For more advanced applications, you can also control SwitchBlox over SPI to implement full managed switch capabilities.
All cables included, these are: 5 x 1.25mm Molex 5 way to RJ45, 300mm cables (for port connections). 2 x 1.25 Molex 5 way to tinned wires, 300mm cables (for power input and output)
The board comes fully assembled and ready to work as a managed switch, no firmware necessary.
There's currently no option for robot and drone builders looking for a small and robust ethernet switch that's also open source. SwitchBlox means you can incorporate ethernet into space, weight and power constrained applications easily.
It's unique on the market. It's tiny and open source and works straight out the box. And I haven't closed off the design. I want this to help robot and drone developers and eventually build a suite of open source networking hardware for robots and drones.
