- Ethernet is a common interface for cabled networks.
- The new standard Single Pair Ethernet (SPE), reaching up to 1000 m, enables many new use cases to replace analog sensor applications or industrial bus systems.
- Besides cable length, mechanical connector stability and PCB size reduction were the drivers to create a new standard.
The advantages of Single Pair Ethernet
Multi Pair Ethernet vs. Single Pair Ethernet
Diameter & weight
Smaller cable diameter and 30 % of weight reduction
PCB & component space
Significantly lower space consumption on the PCB
