The move from domain-oriented system architecture to new zonal architectures is fuelling the change from legacy networking technologies to Ethernet.

Ethernet, by nature, is a packet-oriented and non-deterministic technology, which is suitable where data packets of any size are required to be transmitted, one after the other. However, in applications that require continuous transmission and possibly even synchronous streaming data such as audio and video, Ethernet is not the ideal solution.

In this free, 60-minute webinar, Microchip Technology’s Francis Ielsch explains how adding Audio Video Bridging (AVB) or Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) support can fix these problems and make Ethernet suitable for audio and video applications in vehicles.

Key topics and takeaways:

  • The global automotive industry is heading toward full Ethernet vehicles, but classic Ethernet non-deterministic behavior is a barrier
  • Overview of AVB/TSN and how it improves Ethernet’s deterministic behaviour and latency for synchronous audio/video transmission
  • Case study showing how an in-vehicle audio infotainment system made of multiple sources and speakers can achieve high-quality synchronous audio
