100/1000BASE-T1 USB Interface MATEnet

The 100/1000BASE-T1 USB Interface MATEnet realizes a connection between a 1000BASE-T1/100BASE-T1 network and USB 3.1 port. The device features TE MATEnet and USB 3.1 Type-C connectors and acts as a standard network interface card when plugged into a PC.

The 100/1000BASE-T1 USB Interface is an ideal tool for connecting a 100BASE-T1/1000BASE-T1 ECU or network to a computer or laptop without an internal network card, such as ultrabooks, mini PCs etc.

Communication speed and master/slave settings can be auto-negotiated with a link partner or can be set manually by the user. A Virtual COM port is available to read the device status and port diagnostic. The device can also be used as a USB-CAN(/FD) interface.

100/1000BASE-T1 USB Interface MATEnet – Communication Protocol Specification


  • Automotive Ethernet to USB 3.1 network interface card
  • 1000BASE-T1 and 100BASE-T1 support
  • 100/1000 Mbit full-duplex communication
  • Speed auto-negotiation or manual selection
  • Master/slave auto-negotiation or manual selection
  • IEEE and Legacy mode
  • Automatic polarity detection on T1 port
  • Frame generator mode
  • USB virtual COM port for configuration, status and port diagnostic
  • Free-of-charge PC application
  • Can be used as a USB to CAN(/FD) interface
  • USB Type-C connector
  • USB-powered
  • Aluminium enclosure
  • DIN rail mounting possibility

The in-built status LEDs and dip switches allow to visualize the port status and configure its parameters. The interface offers advanced features such as frame generator and cable diagnostic.

When plugged into a computer’s USB 3.x port, the device is enumerated as a network interface card (supports both 1000 Mbit and 100 Mbit speeds depending on the T1 port speed) and a virtual COM port that can be used to programmatically access the device’s status and configuration as we as use the USB to CAN(/FD) interface function (works simultaneously with the 100/1000BASE-T1 network interface card function).

The open communication protocol over USB allows to read status information and configure the port parameters, and enables to easily integrate the device into any system. The user can programmatically configure the device, and a free-of-charge PC application is available to visualise the device’s status, configure its parameters and use the advanced functions.

Free of Charge PC Application

The 100/1000BASE-T1 USB Interface PC application is provided free-of-charge.


  • Read port status: link, speed, master/slave, signal quality, insertion and return loss
  • Override device’s configuration: auto-negotiation, speed, IEEE/Legacy mode
  • Run cable test
  • Use the device as a USB-CAN(/FD) interface: configure CAN channel, transmit/receive CAN and CAN FD frames

The application is available for Microsoft Windows and uses the .NET framework.

Communication Protocol for Integration

The open communication protocol is available to access the media converter over USB or CAN(/FD). The protocol allows to remotely read status and configure the T1 port, or to use the device as a USB-CAN(FD) interface.
