Texas Instruments introduced the DP83TD510E, an ethernet physical layer (PHY) that is able to transmit 10 Mbps ethernet signals up to 1.7 km through a single pair of twisted wires.
It’s extended cable reach is 1.5 km greater compared to the 200m requirement of the IEEE 802.3cg 10BASE-T1L single-pair Ethernet specification. The length assists designers to extend the reach of industrial communications.
Further, the PHY helps designers to implement a single communications network ranging from the controller to edge node. This makes it possible to transmit full-duplex data over a single pair of twisted wires. Because of this, designers can simplify network management while improving system control and interoperability in long-distance applications.
The DP83TD510E was developed for the use in ethernet advanced physical layer (APL) systems. Ethernet-APL is a specification based on the IEEE 802.3.cg 10BASE-T1L standard, which was developed to to speed the implementation process of ethernet networking in automation systems with intrinsic safety requirements.
Additionally it’s ultra-low power consumption, which is less than 45 mW at 1 V p2p, allows for additional power margins that can be shifted to other critical circuits.
