The MACH-ETH is an automotive network interface that features one Ethernet port, two CAN FD channels, a LIN channel, a USB and RS-232 port, and multiple I/Os. The device can act as an Ethernet-CAN(/FD) or Ethernet-LIN interface as well as CAN(/FD)-LIN gateway, and a user-scripting feature allows to run user applications directly on the device.
The communication protocol over Ethernet or USB enables access to CAN(/FD) and LIN bus channels over Ethernet or virtual COM port respectively.
A user-scripting feature, which allows to run user applications directly on the MCU, can be used for HiL testing and rest-bus simulations. The device can act as an interface, a gateway, or bridge between all its channels.
An analogue input and a digital output enable the user to interact with external peripherals.
- 10/100 Ethernet port
- 2 CAN channels with CAN FD support
- LIN channel
- USB 2.0
- Analogue input and digital output
- 4 DIP switches
