Space-saving, low-power transceiver for automotive electronics and ADAS applications
Mouser now stocks the DP83TC811S-Q1 transceiver from Texas Instruments. The AEC-Q100 qualified device is an automotive Ethernet physical layer (PHY) transceiver that enables designers to inject increased intelligence to automotive applications through Ethernet connectivity. Claimed to be the first 100BASE-T1 device to SGMII, the device is ideal for use in automotive body electronics, infotainment and cluster, and ADAS applications.
The automotive transceiver highlights an integrated diagnostic toolkit, including test modes and debug tools through some real-time monitoring functions. The diagnostic toolkit comprises temperature and voltage sensors, cable diagnostics, and an ESD monitor, facilitating designs that can withstand high-voltage faults and ESD events.
The transceiver is compliant with the IEEE 802.3bw standard and OPEN Alliance qualification, allowing the use of unshielded single twisted-pair copper cable, which decreases overall cable weight and cost. The device’s small 6mm x 6mm wettable flank package allows a 50% smaller solution size while also providing a visual indicator of solderability to lower inspection time.
