Automotive Ethernet Tools

Hit the ground running with Intrepid’s full line of Automotive Ethernet tools!

Automotive Ethernet (AE) represents the latest challenge to the status quo in automotive networking. Many OEMs are now moving forward with this exciting new technology, which promises high performance at low cost, especially for infotainment applications.

Capturing Automotive Ethernet Frames
Automotive Ethernet traffic cannot be monitored using the same techniques employed for buses like CAN. Ethernet networks use star topology, so there is no single point to monitor an entire network. The sophisticated technology employed also means bit values cannot be interpreted directly from voltage levels. Finally, Ethernet hardware silently discards erroneous frames, making diagnosing problem conditions difficult. Intrepid’s tools are designed to address all of these issues conveniently and efficiently.

Automotive Ethernet Connector
Media Converters
Active Tap
Ethernet Switches
Data Loggers
The inexpensive, pocket-sized RAD-Moon easily interfaces conventional Ethernet with BroadR-Reach® (100BASE-T1 compatible). Powered by USB, the RAD-Moon allows you to communicate directly between a PC and an Automotive Ethernet ECU.
RAD-Moon Duo
The RAD-Moon Duo is a Dual media converter for connecting to two port of 100BASE-T1 physical layer to two port of a 4-wire 10/100 Ethernet (100BaseTX).
RAD-Moon 2
RAD-Moon 2 allows you to convert from 100/1000BASE-T1 Automotive Ethernet to standard 10/100/1000 Ethernet, useful for connecting a PC to a 100/1000BASE-T1 host or switch.
Intrepid’s RAD-Galaxy is a multi-purpose Ethernet multi active-tap, media converter and ISO CAN FD tool for Automotive Ethernet applications. Using the RAD-Galaxy, you can monitor both sides of up to 6 BroadR-Reach® (100BASE-T1 compatible) links in active tap mode, or connect your laptop to up to 12 nodes in media converter mode. In addition to supporting Automotive Ethernet, the RAD-Galaxy supports 8 ISO CAN FD networks, 1 LIN channel and a Diagnostics over IP (DoIP) channel.
The RAD-Gigastar can monitor one pair of 100/1000BASE-T1* connections with an additional pair of SFP cages to support optical/ copper SFP transceivers. In addition, the RAD-Gigastar can also operate as a programmable gateway to create an Ethernet-to-Ethernet or a CAN-Ethernet gateway.
Intrepid’s RAD-Pluto is the first in a family of Automotive Ethernet switches designed specifically for bench and vehicle network development. This Layer 2 switch is configurable with up to 4x 100BASE-T1 ports, a 1000BASE-T port, and a GigE/USB bridge.
Intrepid’s RAD-Jupiter is a rugged 7-port managed switch designed specifically for bench and vehicle network development. In addition to its Ethernet functionality, it integrates many of the key CAN, LIN, and scripting features found in our ValueCAN 4 family of tools.

Vehicle Spy Supports Automotive Ethernet

Vehicle Spy

Intrepid’s Vehicle Spy 3 software analyzes and saves Automotive Ethernet data. You can view CAN, LIN, Automotive Ethernet and video data on one screen, time-aligned with an accuracy of 10 ns. Examine live data and load data logger captures to see when a test operator pressed a trigger button, synchronized with video frame captures and Automotive Ethernet frames.
