Product Change Notification
The NCN26010 device is an IEEE 802.3cg compliant Ethernet Transceiver including a Media Access Controller (MAC), a PLCA Reconciliation Sublayer (RS) and a 10BASE−T1S PHY designed for industrial multi−drop Ethernet. It provides all physical layer functions needed to transmit and receive data over a single unshielded twisted pair. NCN26010 communicates to host MCUs via Open Alliance MACPHY SPI protocol.
  • Enhanced Noise Immunity Mode:
    - ENI extends the noise immunity to values well above the IEEE T1S standard
    - Allows the NCN26010 to withstand worst-case DPI and BCI immunity tests
    - Significantly improves the network reach when enabled, almost 2X better than competition
    - Unique to NCN26010
  • Lowest Line Pin Capacitance:
    - Best-in-class line pin capacitance allows for the highest number of nodes per segment.
    - The NCN26010 supports up to 40 nodes on a 25-meter segment, well above the IEEE minimum standard
    - Lowers cabling, connector, and installation costs
  • Collision Detection Masking:
    - Masking detected collisions allows operation in noisy conditions
    - Prevents false collision detection in high-noise environments
    - When used in conjunction with ENI, the NCNS26010 has unparalleled noise tolerance
  • PLCA Precedence Mode:
    - Lower PLCA ID's get precedence over higher ones
    - Provides arbitration similar to CAN: The Coordinator (i.e., the head node) sends a new beacon once any station transmits
    - Unique to NCN26010
  • Physical Layer collision avoidance PLCA:
    - Allows higher throughput in multi-drop topologies
  • Two Configurable Digital Outputs that can Drive Low Current LEDs:
    - Supports systems where up to two LEDs can provide status indicators
  • Open Alliance Compatible SPI Interface:
    - Conforms to Open Alliance TC6 specs for Configuration and Data Frames to Host MCUs
  • MAC Address Filtering:
    - By filtering frames based on the destination address, Ethernet frames not intended for a certain node are not processed by the host, thus reducing the load
    - The MAC will see the frame, process the address, drop it based on the filter criteria, and the host will not need to handle it
  • Supports IEEE802.3 CSMA/CD Collision Detection:
    - PLCA mode will default to CSMA/CD collision detection, if needed
