1.Background of Development

In the automotive industry in recent years, in order to improve the functions of automobiles such as automatic operation and ADAS*4, the image resolution of automotive cameras that operate as sensors has been further improved and the speeding up of automotive networks connecting various ECUs*5 has been accelerated. In future, it is expected that the 1000BASE-T1 transmission standard, which is faster than the currently established 100BASE-T1*6 standard, will become widespread.

This product has been made more compact using Murata’s winding technology, and realizes the characteristics and reliability required of noise filters used in 1000BASE-T1 communication circuits.

2.Features of the Product

The DLW32MH101XT2 supports the S-Parameter characteristics*7 specified by the OPEN Alliance*8 automotive network standard organization. The details are as follows.
  • The world’s first common mode choke coil compatible with 1000BASE-T1 (up to 1Gbps)
  • Fully compatible with the S-Parameter specified by the OPEN Alliance
  • Operating temperature from -40℃ to 125℃
  • The industry’s smallest size, measuring 3.2mm x 2.5mm, realized using a unique winding structure

3.Future Development

Murata has begun shipping samples of this product with a view to the future introduction of automotive devices supporting 1000BASE-T1 in 2019. The Company plans to begin mass production within 2018.

From now on, the demand for faster automotive networks will increase in line with the greater functionality and use of electronics in automobiles. Murata will continue develop a variety of products that meet the needs of our customers while watching the spread of high-speed networks exceeding 1000BASE-T1 (multi-gigabit).
