The FlexPoint 10AUI/T is a 10BASE-T to Attachment Unit Interface (AUI) converter. The transceiver provides the physical medium conversion between units equipped with the AUI and the unshielded twisted pair (UTP) connectors.
The FlexPoint 10AUI/T Transceiver operates in Half-Duplex. It supports switch-enabled SQE function, also known as heartbeat. This signal tests the collision detection electronics of the transceiver, and informs the Ethernet interface that the collision detection circuits and signal paths are working correctly.
