Product Description

The SFP Module 1000BASE-T1 H-MTD is a solution to convert between 1000BASE-T1 and SGMII using an H-MTD connector. It fits into a standard SFP(+) (Small Form-factor Pluggable) slot and provides an Automotive Ethernet interface (100/1000 Mbit/s full-duplex, on one single twisted pair cable). When plugged into approved devices, Hardware-in-Loop (HiL) systems, and test benches with compatible chassis, the SFP Module has to be configured to Automotive Ethernet (100- or 1000BASE-T1) after power-up.

The device features four dip switches for the following functionalities:

  • Dip switch no. 1: Slave/Master setting
  • Dip switch no. 2: 100/1000Mbps
  • Dip switch no. 3: IEEE/Legacy mode
  • Dip switch no. 4: SingleSendS/MultipleSendS mode

The device can be used together with other Technica Engineering products, like the Switch-Based products or Capture Module products or other approved chassis of Technica partners. However, the SFP Modules do not work as a “plug-and-play” solution. To set up the SFP Module, the user must be able to interact with the registers of the Phy via I²C and get in touch with Marvell (the PHY manufacturer) to receive the NDA-protected PHY-register setting datasheet to initialize the Phy. Some commercially available devices already recognize and work with the SFP modules successfully, please check the supported devices together with us.
