SparkFun MicroMod Single Pair Ethernet Kit

The SparkFun MicroMod Single Pair Ethernet Kit demonstrates 10BASE-T1L Two-Wire Ethernet protocol within the SparkFun MicroMod ecosystem by using two SparkFun MicroMod Single Pair Ethernet Function Boards and including all the accessories to run a proof of concept example over 0.5 meters of cable; which can be helpful before installing application nodes 1700 meters apart to monitor remote equipment.

The ADIN1110 is an ultra-low power, single-port Two-Wire Ethernet transceiver. It features an integrated media access control (MAC) interface to allow for direct connections with a host controller via a serial peripheral interface (SPI) at 10 Mbp/s full duplex. To top it off, the specified cable reach for edge nodes is up to 1700 meters.

10BASE-T1L Ethernet uses a single twisted pair for data and power (Note: this Function Board is not designed to provide power over the cable) intended for long distance connections with reduced cable weight and increased connector integrity for edge node devices for applications such as industrial installations and field instruments. 10BASE-T1L Ethernet is compatible with the 802.3cg IEEE® standard, supports high bandwidth up to 10Mb/s and can send and receive data on Ethernet connections over 1 kilometer long.

This kit can be used with an example based on two nodes. A MicroMod Single Main Board with a MicroMod Artemis processor and a MicroMod Single Main Board with a MicroMod ESP32 Processor processor. These two Main boards should be connected with the included 0.5 meter Industrial Ethernet Cable.

Note: This kit includes the required hardware to provide proof of concept communication over 10BASE-T1L Ethernet. A Qwiic sensor should also need to be integrated into your system depending on your monitoring application. These parts will need to be purchased separately.

MicroMod is a modular interface ecosystem that connects a microcontroller “processor board” to various “carrier board” peripherals. Utilizing the M.2 standard, the MicroMod standard is designed to easily swap out processors on the fly. Pair a specialized carrier board for the project you need with your choice of compatible processor!
