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

The FC612 USB OABR Stick Raw functions as full-featured Layer2 receiver and transmitter in an automotive Ethernet network. In comparison to the standard FC602 USB OABR Stick the FC612 USB OABR 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 in an automotive 100Base-T1 network.

Flexible software APIs feature full access to TJA1101 internal registers. This enables cable-testing and network diagnosis.

The design of the FC612 USB OABR Stick Raw contains two main components. The NXP LPC4333 microcontroller features an USB 2.0 device interface for connectivity to a MS-Windows or Linux host platform. A NXP TJA1101 BroadR-Reach PHY is realizing the physical interface to an OABR network. The LPC4333 microcontroller and the TJA1101 PHY are connected via RMII, SMI and GPIO interface signals.
