New switch with built-in SFP optical bridge connected to a single clean output Ethernet
EtherRegen pays more attention to the audio of a clean Audio Use Lan Port port output, with special emphasis on isolation, voltage regulation, and clock.
Dual clock domains: Lock, flip and buffer are now symmetric on both sides of the active isolator "moat". One clock synthesizers, the FEMTO Crystek 575 clock, one ultra-fast, ultra-low jitter differential triggers.
Provides isolation from upstream leakage currents (in various forms) and prevents upstream clock noise (phase noise, jitter, whatever you want to call it) to propagate through.
There are four Gigabit RJ45 copper ports on one end and SFP ports for fiber.
The other end has "crossing the active isolator in its own clock and power domain" RJ45 port, DC power jack, power LED, grounding thumbscrew, 75 ohm BNC for optional 10MHz reference clock input, and A micro switch selects the internal/external clock
Eliminate noise with commercial grade 7-layers PCB boards.
How to use EtherREGEN?
The EtherREGEN connection is before any device (computer, streaming/renderer or DAC with Ethernet input) is connected to the DAC. Therefore, you can now connect the Ethernet cable to your computer (from anywhere - on the side of EtherREGEN) and then use the short cable on the other side of the EtherREGEN to connect to the DAC-connected computer/terminal.
Note that I just referred to the "output" side as the "other side". We avoid using the terms "clean" and "dirty" because the unit's isolated clock/data/power domain is symmetrical - both sides are extremely low noise/low jitter. But you do want the device connected to the DAC to be able to connect separately on the side/domain opposite all upstream devices.
Following the above steps, you can see that you do not need to interrupt or replace any other network modem/router/switch. Once you connect EtherREGEN in series to the streaming media connected to the DAC (or become a more popular DAC with Ethernet input), you are free to take advantage of the other
Advantages offered by EtherREGEN:
Two ultra-low-jitter isolated clock domains Its independent, isolated, ultra-low-phase noise clock domain.
This is provided by the new Active 600MHz Ultra Low Jitter Digital Isolator on the Ethernet Signal - this is what no one else has done - the clock operates as a differential line and a 10GHz (!) differential trigger.
The PHY of the switch chip is designed to be connected in a specific manner to ensure a special port-to-port leakage isolation "Ultra low latcacy Ethernet switch chip and the use of the best magnetics of the 4-port jack module with mutiple number of transformer cores per jack"
These must be done on their own separate power domain, thus using more expensive isolated power converter modules and a batch of ultra-low noise regulators.
