MediaConverters

The MediaConverters of Technica Engineering are hardware devices that establish a physical layer conversion between Automotive Ethernet connections (100BASE-T1 or 1000BASE-T1) and any device with a standard Ethernet Network Interface Card (NIC) with an RJ-45 connector.

Our MediaConverters are available in different form factors for different use cases (EMC, SFP, RJ-45, USB-LAN). All of our MediaConverters provide direct point-to-point conversion. They have been designed to adapt to the increasing need for bandwidth, safety and efficiency in the market. The MediaConverters of Technica Engineering provide a bi-directional communication, as they can be switched to half or full-duplex mode.

Our portfolio covers chipsets from established vendors like Broadcom, NXP, and Marvell, providing the user with adaptable and flexible devices for their test systems.

Through Technica’s SFP Modules the user can convert 100BASE-T1 or 1000BASE-T1 to SGMII. With the combination of our products MediaGateway or the Enhanced Ethernet Switch, the user will have an extra Autmotive Ethernet port (100 or 1000Base-T1) in an Automotive-grade switch.

Our converters are the first marketed product of their kind. In 2010, we launched the first BroadR-Reach to Ethernet converter. In 2016, we became pioneers in the integration of 1000BASE-T1 in vehicle networks by introducing the first 1000BASE-T1 physical layer converter.

Today, Technica Engineering is in continuous development for these robust products. We have launched two converters with different connectors (MATEnet and H-MTD) to cope with the needs of gigabit Ethernet solutions for the Automotive world. Our solutions for Next-Generation technologies will follow, so stay tuned to our updates!
