PCIe is the de-facto physical layer interface available in almost all processors used in central vehicle computers. The introduction of PCIe switching provides the best solution for meeting the inter-processor connectivity requirements within a central computer.
Automotive Ethernet provides the best solution for next-generation in-vehicle networks, connecting centralized computers and ECUs.
In this free, 60-minute webinar, Microchip‘s Mike Jones and Richard Cannon discuss PCIe and automotive Ethernet’s critical role in creating complete end-to-end centralized computer platform architectures for ADAS and other connected vehicle technologies.
Key topics and takeaways:
- The next-generation vehicle is a “data centre on wheels.” CPU, MPU, GPU, NAD, SoC, Accelerators, Storage – all natively wanting to communicate PCIe
- PCIe switches connect all processors within the central computer, meeting the connectivity bandwidth demands whilst enabling platform modularity, scalability, secure design partitioning and bridging to the Ethernet domain
- Ethernet provides the vehicle network, transferring sensor data and timing to all devices in the central computer
