E-TBT-MC04 10Base-T

Transceiver

Stand-Alone model

Attached Unit Interface (AUI) to Ethernet RJ-45 connectors

No external power requirement

The E-TBT-MC04 transceiver is a media access unit (MAU) that connects the AUI port of data terminal equipment, repeaters, or other network

devices either directly or through an AUI cable to an Ethernet 10BASE-T device. The Ethernet device is connected to the transceiver through an unshielded or shielded twisted-pair copper cable with RJ-45 connector ends.

E-TBT-MC04

General Description

The E-TBT-MC04, IEEE802.3 compliant Ethernet transceiver uses 10Mbps Ethernet CSMA/CD protocol to provide a connection interface to 10Base-T Ethernet unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cables. The transceiver connects to the AUI connector of an Ethernet device via standard AUI cable.

E-TBT-MC04 Features

Provides a complete interface of the AUI to Ethernet UTP cable.

Supports 10Mbps data transfer rates.

Supports Carrier Sense Multiple Access/Collision Detection (CSMA/CD) contention protocol.

Drives UTP cable segments up to 100 meters (328ft).

Supports selectable link and SQE test functions.

Supports direct connections to host AUI ports.

Detects and corrects reverse polarity on the receiving pair of UTP cables.

Provides four LEDs: Transmit (TX), Receive (RX), Collision, and Status.

Connectors and Cables

E-TBT-MC04 AUI male connector

AUI D-sub 15-pin male connector accommodates AUI drop cables (50 meters max.). The AUI connector is used to connect the transceiver to the AUI port of an Ethernet device such as an Ethernet MAC controller, a repeater, or a hub via an AUI drop cable. The AUI connector is shown in Figure 4. The AUI male connector pin assignments are show in Table 1.

UTP cable (RJ-45 connector)

The 10Base-T, RJ-45 out jack is used to connect a 10Base-T Ethernet device via a 2-pair UTP cable. (Use category 3, 4, or 5 UTP cable.) The length of the UTP cable can be up to 100m (328ft).

The RJ-45 connector pin configuration is shown in Figure 5. The pin assignments are show in the Table 2..

Wiring schemes for UTP cable and devices

How to install the UTP cable is determined by the characteristics of the 10Base-T UTP port of the other device. The following shows some pinning examples:

Note: The device 10Base-T output jack is normally used to connect to another 10Base-T device. The vendor's 10Base-T device sometimes provides a crossover option to set the jack as an input jack for connecting to a 10Base-T Ethernet station.
