Enabling Ethernet Time-Sensitive Networking With Automotive-Certified IP


Automotive systems are becoming more sophisticated as they combine ADAS applications from emergency braking, collision avoidance, lane departure warning to fully autonomous driving, making predictable latency and guaranteed bandwidth in the automotive network critical. These applications require a high volume of data from different parts of the car for processing and decision making. Due to the... » read more

Ethernet Architected For The Future


I wonder if Bob Metcalfe and David Boggs, who invented Ethernet (on my 4th birthday, it turns out!), imagined their technology baby would be what enables the communication within future autonomous vehicles. If you’re curious too, here’s a video of Metcalfe discussing the history of Ethernet. Fast forward to this week, when the Automotive Ethernet Congress was held in Munich, and from whi... » read more

How Ethernet Will Change Automotive Networks


The in-vehicle networks currently used in automobiles are based on a combination of several different data networking protocols, some of which have been in place for decades. There is the controller area network (CAN), which takes care of the powertrain and related functions; the local interconnect network (LIN), which is predominantly used for passenger/driver comfort purposes that are not tim... » read more

Driving By Ethernet


The race to add more sophisticated and safety-critical electronics into cars is forcing carmakers to revisit the communications systems within increasingly electrified and connected vehicles. Until very recently, communication between components within a vehicle was simplistic, and communication between vehicles was non-existent. All of that is changing quickly. Rapid and secure communicatio... » read more

Ethernet In Cars


The automobile is encountering possibly the biggest changes in its technological progression since the invention of the internal combustion engine nearly 150 years ago. Increasing levels of autonomy will reshape how we think about cars and car travel. It won’t be just a matter of getting from point A to point B while doing very little else — we will be able to keep on doing what we want whi... » read more

Faster Commoditization In Cars


Sensors are at the heart of assisted and autonomous driving, but even before these devices hit the road the average selling prices of these components will have to fall far enough to be affordable to a mass audience. Achieving economies of scale is what has made the semiconductor industry successful over the past half century. It has enabled semiconductors to proliferate and for electronics ... » read more

Security For Embedded Electronics


The embedded systems market is expected to enjoy steady growth in the near future—provided those systems can be adequately secured. One of the biggest challenges for embedded devices and systems, especially those employed in the [getkc id="76" comment="Internet of Things"], is adequately protecting them from increasingly sophisticated hacking. This is a new tool for criminal enterprises, a... » read more

A Dual-Mode Error-Correcting Code Solution For 50Gbps Ethernet


The increase in bandwidth is driving more innovations in the Ethernet physical layer technology to combat numerous challenges like channel loss, inter-symbol interference and more importantly error detection and correction. It is imperative to have a mechanism in place to detect and correct errors as data is transmitted and received, while maintaining small silicon area and low power consumptio... » read more

The Importance Of Wi-Fi


Wi-Fi has had a huge impact on the modern world, and it will continue to do so. From home wireless networks to offices and public spaces, the ubiquity of high speed connectivity without reliance on cables has radically changed the way computing happens. It would not be much of an exaggeration to say that because of ready access to Wi-Fi, we are consequently able to lead better lives – using o... » read more

Ethernet’s Next Life


An ever-growing engagement with the Internet — where most of humanity and the ‘things’ we use are almost constantly connected and constantly storing, processing and retrieving data over a network — is increasing pressure to develop new standards, and much more quickly. Witness the timeline of Ethernet, and its humble beginnings as a standard protocol for moving data at 2.5 megabits p... » read more
