Guidelines for Ethernet Physical Layer on Military and Aerospace Vehicle Applications
This ARP establishes guidelines for the use of IEEE-802.3 as a data bus network in military and aerospace vehicles. It encompasses the data cable and its connections for a system utilizing 10Base-T, 100Base-T, 1000BASE-T and 10GBASE-T over copper medium dependent interfaces (MDI). This document contains extensions/restrictions to “off-the-shelf” IEEE-802.3 standards, and assumes that the reader already has a working knowledge of IEEE-802.3.
Rationale: This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) establishes guidelines for the use of circular connectors, cable and harness assemblies for military and aerospace vehicle applications where the use of commercial IEC 60603-7 connectors is not suitable due to environmental or airworthiness requirements
