NETLion is an automotive Ethernet development tool for bidirectional conversion and decoupling of automotive Ethernet 100BASE-T1 (BroadR-Reach®). In addition the media converter and Ethernet tap can diagnose the 100BASE-T1 (BroadR-Reach®) connection quality, status and errors.
- Two variants
- Dual-Media converter
- Dual-Media converter + Tap mode
- For the view of diagnosis data in measurement setups
- Wide range input 8-32V
Operating Mode Dual Media Converter
Up to two 100BASE-T1 (BroadR-Reach®) signals are converted to 100BASE-TX Ethernet, which is common in the IT area.
Operating Mode Network Tap
During the operating mode Network Tap data is decoupled of both BroadR-Reach® line ends and transmitted on the two 100BASE-TX interfaces. The network tap operates on layer 1 and inserts a small symmetric and constant delay of about 1.2 µs.
With the NETLion Configurator Software you can see signal quality, occurring errors, as well as the status of the data traffic. Additionally NETLion includes a filter for ADTF (Automotive Data and Time-Triggered Framework), where you can acquire and view the diagnosis data. NETLion has a Configuration Ethernet Port where you can get this data.
For use in the automotive area
NETLion can be used for the development desk and even for use in harsh environments. Power supply and operating temperature range are designed for the permanent integration in such envirionments.
