Marvell AQcelerate Automotive Ethernet controllers implement the necessary electronic circuitry to communicate among the GPUs/CPUs, switches, sensors and ECUs that make up the In-Vehicle Network (IVN). To provide the most flexible design options and meet the needs of today’s connected cars and the future autonomous driving ecosystem, Marvell Ethernet Controllers support data rates up to 10Gbps.
The AQVC100 is a 10Gbps Ethernet MAC with a PCI Express Gen3/Gen2 interface, based on Marvell’s industry-leading Ethernet controller technology. It is automotive qualified based on AEC-Q100 industry standard. The AQVC100 MAC configuration allows the system designer to place the GPU/CPU and switch on a single board for chip-to-chip communication within the IVN.
For board to board communication via automotive cable, Marvell offers MAC and PHY combinations with the AQcelerate AQVC107, AQVC108, and AQVC109.
