Building on our leadership in Ethernet camera bridge technology, Marvell is excited to work with OMNIVISION and to have been a part of their automotive demonstrations at the recent AutoSens Brussels event. OMNIVISION, a leading global developer of semiconductor solutions, partnered with Marvell to demonstrate its OX03F10 (image sensor) and OAX4000 (image signal processor) with our industry first multi-gigabit Ethernet camera bridge, the Marvell® Brightlane™ 88QB5224.
The combined solutions allow camera video that would otherwise be transported via point-to-point protocol to be encapsulated over Ethernet, thereby integrating cameras into the Ethernet-based in-vehicle network. The solutions work with both interior and exterior cameras and are ideal for SVS and other applications in which numerous cameras are utilized and the output of those cameras is used by multiple subsystems or zones.
“Ethernet is the foundation of the software-defined vehicle. By using the Ethernet camera bridge from our Brightlane automotive portfolio to connect cameras to the zonal Ethernet switch, the cameras are integrated into the end-to-end, in-vehicle network,” said Amir Bar-Niv, vice president of marketing for Marvell’s automotive business unit. “Standard Ethernet features such as security, switching, and synchronization are now available to the camera system, and a simple software update is all that’s required when porting the system from one automobile model to another. Shorter runs to the zonal switches reduce the cable cost and weight, as well.”
The demonstrations in the OMNIVISION booth were well received at AutoSens Brussels, an annual event that brings together leading engineers and technical experts from across the ADAS and autonomous vehicle supply chain.
