With the EVB9351-SFP, KDPOF has developed and validated the first 1000BASE-RH SFP module for optical gigabit connectivity in vehicles. The design of the new small form-factor pluggable transceiver module is based on a standard SFP supporting MSA registers via I2C bus. The module can operate at 100 and 1,000 Mb/s. It integrates the whole 1000BASE-RHC PHY and the header connector for SI-POF optical harness. The new SFP module is an evaluation tool and a reference design for test tool suppliers.

With the new 1000BASE-RH SFP, test houses can support optical gigabit by integrating it in their test setups. The new EVB9351-SFP supports 1000BASE-X, 100BASE-X, and SGMII (with and without auto-negotiation) as electrical interfaces. It monitors the received optical power, the link margin, the junction temperature, and the supply voltages, among others.
