Implementing Ethernet QoS for use in Automotive Networking Designs
Ethernet is becoming mainstream in the automotive market due to the proliferation of in-vehicle infotainment systems and subsystems networked in today's automobiles. For success in this market, designers must understand how to most effectively interface to their Ethernet subsystems via commercial PHY devices, which allow Ethernet packets to be transmitted over a single twisted pair cable instead of a traditional Ethernet cable. In addition, designers should understand how to best implement their designs in hardware and software.
This webinar will review Audio Video Bridging (AVB), the main standard used to enable in-vehicle technology, and the driving forces and predictions for Ethernet in the automotive market. Additional IEEE specifications for encapsulating audio / video into an Ethernet network will also be presented. The webinar will highlight the new features in the DesignWare Ethernet QoS V4.0 specification and their benefits, as well as Synopsys' complete hardware and software solution available to DesignWare Ethernet QoS customers.
Estimated Length: 50 Minutes, 10 Minutes Q&A
Who should attend: Systems designers, SOC designers, project managers, business development managers.
What attendees will learn:
- Introduction to key Ethernet specifications used in automotive designs, including Audio Video Bridging (AVB)
- Automotive applications migrating to Ethernet
- How the these designs will interact with traditional consumer products
- Complete hardware and software solution for Ethernet designers from Synopsys
