Enabling Technologies for IEEE 100BASE-T1

100BASE-T1 offers a way to introduce modern signal processing in automotive, which allows optimal usage of the available channel characteristics. 100BASE-T1 is the industry’s first technology to transmit 100 Mbps over unshielded twisted pair in automotive.TC2 therefore defines the transmission channel between the Ethernet enabled electronic control units that need to communicate. TC2 goals are as follows:

  • Cable, connectors and harness manufacturing need to combine to a deterministic and robust interconnection
  • The solution needs to be reproducible in high volumes, high quality and cost targets of today’s global automotive logistics
TC1 and TC2 in combination provide for the complete 100BASE-T1 application.
