The AME51 Media Converter is a standalone physical layer device that converts between 10/100BaseT(X) and 100BaseFX segments of the same network. The converter supports Link Fault Pass-Through for easily tracing network link failures, and the LFP function enhances the integrity and conformity of TP-Fiber linking to make the network easier to maintain. AME51 is powered by an external power adaptor or USB port on the hosting device (e.g., PC or NB). The option of using USB port power, which is unique to AME51 for products of this type, offers greater flexibility when deploying AME51 in the field.

Link Fault Pass-Through
The Link Fault Pass-Through feature overcomes a problem encountered when using traditional media converters. The problem is this. When one side of the link fails, the other side continues transmitting packets, and then waits for a response that never arrives from the disconnected side.

What AME51 does is force the link to shut down as soon as it notices that the other link has failed, giving the application software a chance to react to the situation.
