The quantity of electronics content found in a modern car is quite staggering. Back in the 1990s there would have only been a relatively small number of electronic controls units (ECUs) taking care of a few key tasks. With the advent of advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) technology and the integration of increasingly more sophisticated in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) features, things are proving to be very different today. Now even an economy level car can possess as many as 100 distinct ECUs, while a luxury model might have in excess of 150.
We have now reached a stage where nobody really doubts that it will be Ethernet that forms the foundation of in-vehicle networking infrastructure in the future. Avnet Silica partners with Marvell to help develop cutting-edge customer solutions using the latest Ethernet Technologies.
