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

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

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

Swanson, Product Line Manager, DesignWare Ethernet, Digital Cores,

John Swanson has been working in the IP business since 1990
when he joined Logic Automation / Modeling which was later acquired by Synopsys.
John has worked in the design, verification, integration and implementation
aspects of complex IP in engineering methodology, and business development and
marketing. He has been working on System-on-a-Chip technologies and
methodologies for over ten years with Synopsys in a variety of assignments.
Currently he is the product line manager for the DesignWare Ethernet family of
Digital cores as well as JPEG, 1394 and the IP reuse tools.

Prior to
joining Synopsys he worked for Amoco Oil Company designing wellhead automation
