The Automotive Ethernet Converter converts Gigabit data between automotive Ethernet and standard Ethernet.

Automotive Ethernet Converter

The Automotive Ethernet Converter converts Gigabit data between automotive Ethernet and standard Ethernet (100 / 1000Base-T1 <-> 100 / 1000Base-T).


The successor to our OABR2Ethernet Media Converter is now also capable of converting Gigabit ethernet data between 1000BaseT1 and standard Ethernet. This device is primarily designed to convert Ethernet signals between a car’s ECU on one side and a PC or data logger on the other, but it can also be used for any other application where this functionality is needed.

In addition, the Automotive Ethernet Converter provides a high-speed CAN transceiver. If there is no activity on the connected CAN bus, the device can optionally be put into sleep mode to reduce power consumption. The sleep timeout is configurable via software.

Basic configuration is realised with DIP switches, and LEDs provide information about the current status of the media converter and the connected interfaces. The firmware of the device can be updated via USB bootloader.

*All X2E OABR products run through Teledyne LeCroy’s QualiPHY Compliance Test. We gladly provide you with the test results.
