1000Base-T1 SPY Mini

Read the complete data of your 1000Base-T1 (Automotive Gigabit Ethernet) network

Samples data frames directly from the bus without influencing the original network



1000Base-T1 SPY mini is more than just a development tool for testing and analysing on-board vehicle networks, is the first one that allows to sniffing 1000Base-t1 (Automotive Gigabit Ethernet) traffic.

It allows to sample data frames directly from the bus without influencing the original network, and also provides the possibility to serve as a converter between 1000Base-T and 1000Base-T1.

In logging mode the data Frames can be enhanced with additional information: the exact timestamp with 0.04 µs resolution and the bus port the data was originally received on. All data can be recorded on a PC or datalogger for detailed offline analysis.

Different SPY modes are allowed:

  1. Copying each direction of 1000Base-T1 Traffic to one independent RJ45 interface
  2. Allowing copy of both directions of 1000Base-T1 traffic to only one RJ45 interface, assuming less  than 500Mbps traffic bandwidth in each direction.

Optionally other Uses-Cases as Dual Media Converter or Frame Generator are also available.
