Media Converter for Automotive Ethernet

Bridge the Gap Between Conventional and Automotive Ethernet

The RAD-Moon is a media converter that allows you to connect a BroadR-Reach® / 100BASE-T1 Automotive Ethernet device to a PC with a conventional 4-wire 10/100 Ethernet port. With its low cost, compact size and high performance, the RAD-Moon is ideal for monitoring, analysis, diagnostics and other applications in an Automotive Ethernet environment.

Simple, Inexpensive, Yet Powerful

The RAD-Moon contains two different Ethernet physical layer implementations (PHYs) that are internally connected: BroadR-Reach® and conventional 10/100 twisted pair Ethernet. Whenever any data is received over either connection, it is automatically sent out on the other, creating a seamless link between the two attached devices. Full-duplex operation is supported, so data can be sent in both directions simultaneously.

Key Features

  • Powered by an industry-standard mini-USB connection
  • BroadCom BCM89810 BroadR-Reach® PHY
  • Automatic master/slave configuration for the attached Automotive Ethernet device
  • Molex Mini50 for Automotive Ethernet connection
  • Standard RJ-45 for 10/100 Ethernet connection with automatic configuration for 10 Mb/s or 100 Mb/s Ethernet networks
  • Link and activity LEDs for both connections
  • Full-duplex support for simultaneous data transmission and reception across both PHYs
  • Rugged aluminum enclosure with rubber bumpers for durability
  • Ethernet cable and USB cable included
