Symphony Teleca Partners with Broadcom to Deliver Ethernet AVB to the Automotive Industry
Sep 30, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Symphony Teleca Corp., a services organization dedicated exclusively to helping clients manage the global convergence of software, the cloud and connected devices, announced a joint collaboration with Broadcom to deliver a multi-node Ethernet AVB System based on Symphony Teleca's Ethernet AVB End-point Stack and Broadcom BroadR-Reach Ethernet switch technology.
According to a release, the combination of these company's solutions provides automotive OEMs and Tier1s with a low risk track to Ethernet AVB solutions, while tackling the challenging requirement for higher performance and scalability, reducing connectivity costs.
With increasing multimedia requirements for in-vehicle-infotainment, Ethernet AVB provides higher bandwidth and more stable network management capabilities compared to Media Oriented System Transport (MOST) and Controller Area Network (CAN) standards. With a time-synchronized network for audio, video and control data on a single cable, it delivers a low latency and low cost in-vehicle network with guaranteed quality of service (QoS). Through simple lightweight cabling, plug-and-play capabilities, scalable and versatile topology support like star, bus and tree, it is the ideal standard for future proof in-vehicle networks. Ethernet AVB also supports gateways for heterogeneous networks like CAN, LIN or Flexray for compliance with other standards.
"Ethernet AVB is becoming a key feature for future automotive connectivity," said Dean Miles, Senior Vice President Automotive, Symphony Teleca. "We are pleased to collaborate with Broadcom to provide a seamless option to customers looking to adopt a proven, high-performance Ethernet AVB Solution for next-generation vehicles."
Key highlights of the Symphony Teleca Ethernet AVB Solution comprise:
-An Ethernet AVB endpoint stack designed for compliance with the developing automotive specification in AVnu,
-Endpoint implementation for IEEE802.1AS, 802.1Qav, 802.1Qat, IEEE1722 and the latest IEEE 1722a draft
-Adaptable for major silicon vendors and OS platforms
-Multimedia and network management middleware development and application
-Application development for multimedia and network management
Broadcom's BroadR-Reach automotive-qualified Ethernet solutions allow multiple in-vehicle systems to simultaneously access information over a single unshielded twisted pair cable at speeds of up to 100 Mbps. By eliminating cumbersome, shielded cabling, automotive manufacturers can reduce connectivity costs up to 80 percent and cabling weight up to 30 percent.
"The automotive industry has enthusiastically embraced Ethernet as the technology of choice in enabling the next-generation connected car," said Dr. Ali Abaye, Senior Director of Automotive at Broadcom. "We are pleased to collaborate with Symphony Teleca in enabling faster time-to-market and lower cost Ethernet AVB solution."
Symphony Teleca Corp., headquartered in Mountain View, Calif., is a global technology and development services company.
