Ethernet PHY devices are automotive-qualified

MICROCHIP TECHNOLOGY Family of automotive-qualified Ethernet PHYs allows automotive designers to replace legacy gateway subsystems with technology that can migrate applications to an Ethernet network to easily access information from the edge to the cloud. The family of 10BASE-T1S devices with AEC-Q100 Grade 1 qualification includes the LAN8670, LAN8671 and LAN8672. The LAN8670/1/2 10BASE-T1S Ethernet PHYs are functional safety ready and designed for use in ISO 26262 applications. Devices now make it possible to connect low-speed devices that previously required their own communication systems into a standard Ethernet system in automotive applications. The ability to connect multiple Ethernet PHYs to a common bus line makes it simpler to implement automotive applications on a single, well-known architecture and saves implementation costs by reducing cabling and switch ports.
