John Day In my last post I noted the launch by Freescale and Broadcom of a single-chip automotive microcontroller (MCU) that supports compact video compression and fast transmission of video data throughout a vehicle over unshielded twisted pair cabling. The firms said cabling weight could be reduced by up to 30% and connectivity costs reduced by up to 80%. But wait, there’s more. Cable weight in cars … Read More

John Day Broadcom recently announced a line of wireless chips for automotive infotainment applications (http://bit.ly/17XRzGO). It said the chips will allow drivers and passengers to easily sync and stream content from mobile devices to the car’s infotainment system and rear-seat displays. They will also enable high-speed connectivity beyond the vehicle, serving content via LTE or from a Hot Spot connection. Rahul … Read More

John Day No offense to CAN (controller area network) technology, but with demand mounting for sophisticated in-vehicle systems and on-board diagnostics, there is a clear need for a faster protocol for automotive networking. More than 70 technology and automotive companies are working together in the OPEN Alliance (One-Pair Ether-Net) to make faster networking available. As the name implies, Alliance members … Read More

John Day Last month Broadcom said its BroadR-Reach automotive Ethernet portfolio can reduce connectivity costs by up to 80 percent and cabling weight by as much as 30 percent. NXP Semiconductors licensed BroadR-Reach and intends to create automotive-grade products for the Ethernet physical layer. NXP noted in its announcement that major car manufacturers are designing with Ethernet as a high-bandwidth, low-cost … Read More
