TI’s automotive transceiver is now available from Mouser

Designed to save space in automotive electronics and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), Texas Instruments’ DP83TC811S-Q1 transceiver is now available from distributor, Mouser Electronics.

The AEC-Q100 qualified DP83TC811S-Q1 is an automotive Ethernet physical layer (PHY) transceiver that allows designers to introduce increased intelligence to automotive applications through Ethernet connectivity. It is claimed to be the first 100BASE-T1 device to support serial gigabit media independent interface (SGMII). The DP83TC811S-Q1 is suitable for use in automotive body electronics, infotainment and cluster, and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) applications.

The TI DP83TC811S-Q1 is a 100-Mbits per second single-pair Ethernet PHY transceiver with SGMII, which improves design flexibility by enabling connections to multiple switches and interfaces. The transceiver features low power consumption, which reduces thermal dissipation, allowing less space required between components. The robust DP83TC811S-Q1 transceiver also includes a physical medium dependent (PMD) filter and termination, MII terminators and power-supply filtering components, reducing the need for external circuitry. The level of integration allows developers to gain more space to incorporate additional features.

The TI DP83TC811S-Q1 automotive transceiver features an integrated diagnostic toolkit, with test modes and debug tools through a number of real-time monitoring functions. The diagnostic toolkit includes cable diagnostics, temperature and voltage sensors, and an electrostatic discharge (ESD) monitor, facilitating designs that can withstand high-voltage faults and ESD events.

The DP83TC811S-Q1 transceiver is compliant with the IEEE 802.3bw standard and OPEN Alliance qualification, enabling the use of unshielded single twisted-pair copper cable, which reduces overall cable weight and cost, says Mouser The device’s small wettable flank package measures 6.0 x 6.0mm and is claimed to enable a 50 per cent smaller size while also allowing a visual indicator of solderability to lower inspection time.

Mouser claims to stock the world’s widest selection of the latest semiconductors and electronic components for the newest design projects. Its website is continually updated and offers advanced search methods to help customers quickly locate inventory. Mouser.com also houses data sheets, supplier-specific reference designs, application notes, technical design information, and engineering tools.
