Industry leading solutions for the car of tomorrow

Automotive Ethernet

Marvell Automotive Networking products are taking what used to be the separate domains of the car — infotainment, the advanced driver assistance system (ADAS), body electronics, and control — and connecting them together providing a high bandwidth, standards based data backbone for the vehicle.  Future developments will include using that information to connect with other sensors required for autonomous vehicles to enable connectivity not just inside but also outside the car.

Harnessing the low cost and high bandwidth of Ethernet brings many advantages to the next generation automotive architecture including the flexibility to add new applications.  In other words, allowing the possibility to build for features that haven’t even been thought up yet.

Marvell is at the forefront of this market, recently bringing high-speed networking into the vehicle by delivering the first samples based on the IEEE 1000Base-T1 specifications. Early chip samples have given auto makers the ability to evaluate the performance of this new standard and identify possible issues early in the application development process, prior to production, accelerating time to market.
