Test specifications for the compliance testing of IEEE 1000BASE-T1 (IEEE802.3bp, Cause 97) Physical Interface (PHY) devices

In March 2016, the SIG introduced its twelfth technical committee (TC12), aimed to create test specifications for the compliance testing of IEEE 1000BASE-T1 (IEEE802.3bp) Physical Interface (PHY) devices. The planned specifications will cover the following areas:

  • Physical Interface device Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)

  • ESD Protection device performance requirements

  • PCS, PMA and PHY Control compliance to 1000BASE-T1 specification

  • Interoperability of 1000BASE-T1 compliant PHY implementations

  • Advanced PHY Features desired in 1000BASE-T1 PHYs

  • System Implementation specification
