Interoperability & Compliance Tests for 10BASE-T1S PHYs

In the beginning of 2019, the standardization process of 10BASE-T1S achieves its final status in the IEEE. To enable the development of compatible products by semiconductor manufacturers, TC14 was established to coordinate the effort to define interoperability, compliance, and EMC requirements and test methods for 10BASE-T1S PHYs.

The planned specifications will cover the following areas:

  • PCS, PMA and PHY Control compliance to the 10BASE-T1S standard
  • Interoperability of 10BASE-T1S compliant PHY implementations
  • Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)
  • Interface definition between the digital and analog part of 10BASE-T1S
  • System implementation of 10BASE-T1S
  • Advanced diagnostic features for 10BASE-T1S PHYs
  • PLCA register configuration
  • Topology discovery
