foBroadR, an EMC shielded automotive ethernet connector
  • Autodetect: 100Base-T1, 1000Base-T1
  • Up to 200 m
  • EMC immunity 200 V/m up to 18 GHz

BroadR-Reach technology is an Ethernet physical layer standard designed for use in automotive connectivity applications.

BroadR-Reach technology allows multiple in-vehicle systems to simultaneously access information over unshielded single twisted pair cable.

The BroadR-Reach standadrd was originally introduced by Broadcom. Besides Broadcom there are also NXP and Marvel chip set and Phy (88Q2212). The Marvel version used in our converters works with both NXP and Broadcom solutions.

In order to facilitate the connection to a PC the converter supports also regular STP connectors.
