Ethernet interfaces for 10BASE-T1S standard now available

07-07-2023 | Vector | Test & Measurement

Vector now supports the 10BASE-T1S standard in its VN5650 and VN5240 automotive Ethernet interfaces. The company's existing Ethernet interfaces can also be swiftly upgraded to 10BASE-T1S capability through a new physical layer module. This supplies the user with excellent support for simulation, analysis and testing of 10BASE-T1S and 100/1000BASE-T1 networks.

For the user, 10BASE-T1S support in the automotive Ethernet environment is supplied by modularising the interfaces with a new physical layer module (VNmodule60). This allows 10BASE-T1S and

100/1000BASE-T1 in parallel.

For remaining bus simulations with CANoe.Ethernet messages from several simulated ECUs are transmitted to the bus (multi-drop line) with cycle accuracy through a 10BASE-T1S port on the VN5650. For analysis with CANoe, exact receive/transmit time stamps, error states and statistics are displayed as normal. Also, direct access to the 10BASE-T1S multi-drop line is obtainable for testing.

The 10BASE-T1S ports can be combined with other Ethernet standards through the switches and TAPs available on the device. This permits easy media conversion from standard Ethernet to 10BASE-T1S.

Also, physical layer modules for 2.5G/ 5G/ 10GBASE-T1 will soon be available that can be flexibly combined with the physical layer standards 10BASE-T1S, 100BASE-T1, 1000BASE-T1.
