We are witnessing a once in a 100-year transformation in the automotive market, with cars poised to experience a significant increase of the complexity of it's electronics. Additional processing power, video, ADAS, and so much more is giving new life to this consumer staple, and Ethernet is a key enabling technology, set to replace legacy protocols and simultaneously create entirely new application spaces.
OmniPHY, the market leader in IP implementations of Base-T protocols such as 10/100 and Gigabit, today offers silicon proven implementation of Automotive Ethernet: IEEE 802.3bw and BroadR-Reach, on TSMC's standard CMOS process technology.
The technology drives Ethernet over unshielded twisted pair, significantly reducing the harness weight relative to existing four-wire shielded solutions. Care is taken both in the standard and in the implementation of the OmniPHY IP to address EMI.
The IP is suitable for integration into a variety of applications including switches, ECU's, camera's, sensors, and more! Owing to the standard CMOS process used, power is very low and the IP is very integration-friendly.
- Competitive advantage in the new market for Automotive Ethernet enabled devices
- Very low power dissipation and silicon area - the IP is easy to integrate into an SOC or device
- Lower system area and cost
- Lower harness weight
- An exciting and dynamic new market
