Conversion between Automotive MultiGigabit Ethernet and commercial Ethernet solutions.


The MediaConverter Multi-Gigabit from Technica Engineering establishes a direct point-to-point conversion between Automotive ECUs using 10GBASE-T1 (10 Gbit/s Fullduplex) and any standard Gigabit Ethernet (10 Gbit/s, 10GBASE-T) device. In the conversion, no packets are stored or modified. The conversion takes place on the physical layer with the highest proven reliability.

This device which uses a PHY is one of the first implementations worldwide of a multigigabit Automotive Ethernet physical layer media converter. We ensure a trustworthy and effective tool to our customers that are looking for a cost-efficient, quick, and manageable solution for their testing requirements, with no latency and no packet loss.

The device features bi-directional conversion between Gigabit Ethernet (10GBASE-T) and Automotive Gigabit Ethernet (10GBASE-T1). A massive housing made of galvanized sheet steel, coupled with DIP switches for ease of configuration, enables the user to interact with the converter effortlessly.

No customized driver is needed to interact with this MediaConverter. It communicates with standard Ethernet through an SFP slot. It comes with an automotive-grade H-MTD connector and a standard SFP slot. Its design makes it portable and easy to install in test racks. The metal housing makes it robust with IP20 protection. The devices can also be accessed using the debug connector for TX/RX register values as well as information regarding link quality and SQI. With the in-built status LEDs, the operation of the device is transparent and aids the tester to detect link-up and data transmission visually.

No extra hardware or software complements are needed to connect the device with a PC or a Laptop. The device can be coupled with any hardware or software tool that runs on standard Ethernet with an RJ-45 connector.

Thus, the MediaConverter Multigig is the ideal solution for working quickly and efficiently with the new 10GBASE-T1 technology without the hustle of extra-wiring, customized connectors, and vendor-specific tools.
