Hit The Road With Broadcom BroadR-Reach Automotive Portfolio
As consumer demand for in-vehicle connectivity continues to grow, automotive manufacturers are under constant pressure to deliver competitive, innovative features while minimizing cost. Broadcom's BroadR-Reach automotive solutions allow multiple in-vehicle systems (such as infotainment, automated driver assistance and on board-diagnostics) to simultaneously access information over unshielded single twisted pair cable. By eliminating cumbersome, shielded cabling, automotive manufacturers can significantly reduce connectivity costs and cabling weight.
Engineered to meet the rigorous qualifications and demands of the automotive semiconductor market, Broadcom's BroadR-Reach® technology provides high-performance bandwidth of 100Mbps while dramatically reducing connectivity costs up to 80 percent and cabling weight as much as 30 percent.



The Broadcom BroadR-Reach automotive portfolio consists of five devices, including three highly integrated switches with embedded PHYs, and two stand-alone PHY solutions. Each device in the automotive portfolio is designed to meet in-car EMC requirements, extreme automotive temperature grades. Broadcom is TS16949 compliant. AEC-Q100 qualification is currently under way.



Proliferation of Automotive Ethernet Connectivity

Broadcom, NXP Semiconductors N.V., Freescale Semiconductor, and Harman International recently announced the formation of a special interest group (SIG) to drive wide-scale adoption of Ethernet-based automotive connectivity.



Jointly developed with founding automotive members BMW and Hyundai Motor Company, the OPEN Alliance (One-Pair Ether-Net) SIG will address industry requirements for improving in-vehicle safety, comfort, and infotainment, while significantly reducing network complexity and cabling costs.



Designed to encourage wide-scale adoption of 100Mbps Ethernet connectivity as the standard in automotive networking applications, the OPEN Alliance plans to expand its membership roster in the coming months to additional automotive suppliers and manufacturers. For more information visit opensig
