ANALOG DEVICES INC. EVAL-CN0506-FMCZ Evaluation Board | Featured Product Spotlight

Analog Devices is now introducing the CN-0506 Circuit Evaluation Board, a dual channel, low latency, low power Ethernet physical layer card that supports 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, and 1000 Mbps speeds for industrial Ethernet applications using line and ring network topologies.  

Dual channels enable line and ring network topologies that are used for industrial sensing, control, and distributed control systems. The solution supports cable lengths up to 150 meters at gigabit speeds and up to 180 meters at 100 Mbps or 10 Mbps. The automatic negotiation feature of the ADIN1300 allows connection with other PHY devices at the highest supported speed.

The ADIN1300 Ethernet physical layer was tested for electromagnetic compatibility and electrostatic discharge robustness and supports automatic negotiation to enable linking with remote PHY devices at the highest common speed advertised. IEEE 1588 time stamping in the PHY reduces timing uncertainty in real-time applications and enhances link loss detection. 

The circuit consists of two individual, independent 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, and 1000 Mbps PHYs, each with an energy efficient Ethernet PHY core with all the associated common analog circuitry, input and output clock buffering, management interface, subsystem registers, media access control interface, and control logic.

The design is powered from the host field programmable gate array mezzanine card development board, eliminating the need for an external power supply. 

A software programmable clock enables media independent interface, reduced MII, and reduced Gigabit MII MAC interface modes. RJ45 ports with integrated magnetics keep the solution as compact as possible.
