FC621
USB 10BASE-T1L Stick

Description

The FC621 USB 10BASE-T1L Stick represents a compact hardware interface connecting MS-Windows and Linux based PCs with 10BASE-T1L industrial Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) network devices and switches.

The FC621 USB 10BASE-T1L Stick functions as seamless media converter between a standard USB 2.0 interface and a 10BASE-T1L industrial Single Pair Ethernet network. On Windows and Linux host PCs the FC621 USB 10BASE-T1L Stick is detected as standard Ethernet device.

Flexible software APIs feature full access to Analog Devices ADIN1100 PHY internal registers. This enables cable testing and network diagnosis.
