Marvell Accelerates Software-Defined Vehicle Era with Multi-gig Ethernet Camera Bridge Solution
The key technology for scalability is an Ethernet backbone that connects all domain electronic control units (ECUs) as well as cameras and sensors to central compute devices in the vehicle. This device is the latest addition to Marvell’s Brightlane automotive portfolio, which is delivering a host of innovative and secure solutions for the vehicles of the future. The new Ethernet device underscores Marvell’s commitment to enabling smarter, safer and greener vehicles with innovative automotive networking, storage, compute and security semiconductor solutions.” “Marvell’s Ethernet-based bridges are becoming an essential component for the software-defined cars of today,” said Ian Riches, vice president for the Global Automotive Practice, Strategy Analytics. “Not only do Ethernet-based products fit seamlessly into a zonal architecture, but with 802.3ch they are also proving to be an attractive alternative to the SerDes solutions currently used to transport video data in the vehicle.” “Today’s high-speed long-distance camera to ECU communication are proprietary point-to-point protocols that narrow our customers’ design options, which is why they have been requesting a standardized protocol such as Ethernet,” said Stephen Harris, director of Automotive Systems Architecture at onsemi. “Marvell’s 88QB5224 is a single-chip 10Gbps standard Ethernet PHY solution that provides the fast speed needed to enable our portfolio of high-performance, ultra-dynamic range image sensors.
