Embedded Switch Technology

The Embedded Switch Technology embeds Ethernet switch features into your hardware to support high performance applications. Our dual-port products with the embedded switch feature let you connect devices directly to your network, without a separate Ethernet switch, helping to reduce overall cost and simplifying system configuration. These products support linear and device-level ring (DLR) topologies for EtherNet/IP™ applications.
