1000BASE-T1 MediaConverter SFP Module
The 1000BASE-T1 SFP Module is the cutting-edge solution to convert between 1000BASE-T1 and SGMII. It ﬁts into a standard Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) and provides an Automotive Gigabit Ethernet interface (1000 Mbit/s full-duplex, on one single twisted pair cable). An ideal candidate to interact with automotive Ethernet with gigabit interfaces in test houses. When plugged into approved devices, Hardware-in-Loop (HiL) systems and test benches with compatible chassis, the SFP Module must be configured to automotive Ethernet 1000BASE-T1 after power-up. The product features a DIP switch under the module for adjustment of Master / Slave mode of operation for automotive Ethernet 1000BASE-T1.
By using the Marvell 88Q2112 A2 PHY transceiver, 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 minimum latency and maximum reliability. Registers of the integrated transceiver are accessible via I2C interface for diagnosis and reconfiguration.
No customized driver is needed to interact with this device once it has been properly initialized. It communicates with the SGMII interface. It is equipped with a Molex connector which suits to the small available size. The metal housing makes it robust with IP20 protection. The device is capable to function in a variating temperature range from 0 Celsius to +70 Celsius. With the in-built status LED, the operation of the device is transparent and aids the tester to detect Link up and data transmission visually.
The device can be used with our MediaGateway and other approved chassis of Technica partners. However, the SFP Modules do not work in a “plug-and-play” manner with any SFP-capable system. In order to set-up the SFP Modules to work in your system, you must be able to interact via I²C and get in touch with Marvell (the PHY manufacturer) to receive the NDA protected PHY-register setting datasheet in order to initialize the phy properly. In this regard, Technica cannot support, due to NDA restrictions. Some commercially available devices might successfully recognize and work with the SFP Module, this cannot be guaranteed by Technica.
Thus, the 1000BASE-T1 SFP is the ideal solution for working quickly and efficiently with the new gigabit technology without the hustle of extra- wiring, customized connectors, and vendor specific tools.
