USB 100BASE-T1 Stick


The FC602 USB 100BASE-T1 Stick represents a compact hardware interface connecting MS-Windows and Linux based PCs with automotive Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) network devices and switches. Automotive Ethernet network standards OABR (OPEN Alliance BroadR-Reach) and 100BASE-T1 are supported.

The FC602 USB 100BASE-T1 Stick functions as seamless media converter between a standard USB 2.0 interface and a 100BASE-T1 automotive Single Pair Ethernet network. On Windows and Linux host PCs the FC602 USB 100BASE-T1 Stick is detected as standard Ethernet device.

Flexible software APIs feature full access to the NXP TJA1101 PHY internal registers. This enables cable testing and network diagnosis.

The USB interface of the FC602 USB 100BASE-T1 Stick allows seamless connection to a broad variety of PCs, notebooks and embedded platforms. The USB Control and CDC/ECM profiles enable the usage of USB hosts running MS-Windows as well as Linux operating systems. This enables the USB 100BASE-T1 Stick for the following applications:

  • Standard Ethernet network device supporting OABR/BroadR-Reach/100BASE-T1 pyhsical interface
  • MS-Windows and Linux PC used as protocol analyzer (Wireshark) for 100BASE-T1 networks
  • Point-to-Point automotive Ethernet network connection using two USB 100BASE-T1 Sticks
  • Evaluation of NXP TJA1101 100BASE-T1 PHY chip with full access to SMI registers
  • 100BASE-T1 cable testing and network diagnosis
  • Simulation of multiple nodes on automotive Ethernet switch designs
  • Automotive Ethernet network simulation and demonstration


  • MS-Windows 10 or Linux host platform (e.g. PC, Laptop, Raspberry Pi)
  • USB 2.0 host port
