FC612
USB 100BASE-T1 Stick Raw

Description

The FC612 USB 100BASE-T1 Stick Raw represents a compact hardware interface connecting MS-Windows and Linux based PCs with automotive Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) network devices and switches. Network standards like OABR (OPEN Alliance BroadR-Reach) and 100BASE-T1 are supported.

The FC612 USB 100BASE-T1 Stick Raw functions as full-featured Layer2 receiver and transmitter on a 100BASE-T1 automotive Single Pair Ethernet network. In comparison to the standard FC602 USB 100BASE-T1 Stick the FC612 USB 100BASE-T1 Stick Raw is not installed as network device on the Host PC, but comes with an API (Broadway2 C-API) to get full access to Layer2 raw data on a 100BASE-T1 automotive network.

The FC612 can be used for the analysis, simulation, test and validation of automotive Ethernet networks. Flexible software APIs feature full access to NXP TJA1101 PHY internal registers. This enables cable testing and network diagnosis.
