How to Become an Expert in Automotive Ethernet Testing

Automotive Ethernet is the becoming the serial data backbone of choice for faster data communication to enable advanced ADAS, infotainment, connected car, and autonomous vehicle technologies. Join Teledyne LeCroy for this 4-part webinar series covering automotive ethernet (BroadR-Reach, 100Base-T1, and 1000Base-T1) fundamentals through advanced testing for electrical link and PHY compliance test to advanced PHY debug.

Mastering MDI Return Loss and Mode Conversion Loss Test

In this session (Part 2), we will focus on the reflection measurements MDI return loss and MDI mode conversion loss. We will review the basic concepts of the S-parameters and their meaning in single ended and mixed-mode form with particular reference to the single balanced twisted pair. We’ll follow with a measurement demonstration.

Topics to be covered in this webinar:

  • Automotive Ethernet and single-balanced unshielded twisted pair
  • Mixed-mode S-parameter overview
  • Why to measure common-to-differential mode conversion?
  • Testing the fixture for mode conversion loss margin compared to the MDI requirement
  • Introduction to MDI S-parameter testing

Who should attend? All HW engineers developing and testing Automotive Ethernet accordingly to the 100Base-T1 and 1000Base-T1 standards with particular reference to MDI S-parameters.

What attendees will learn? Background knowledge for MDI S-parameter Automotive Ethernet measurement and what to expect when testing it.

Presenter: Giuseppe Leccia, Business Development Manager, High-speed Interconnect Analysis
