In addition to common serial interfaces, such as the two UARTs, I2C and SPI, a QSPI peripheral provides an interface for booting the device. The TDM/I2S interface provides a full-duplex TDM port with support for multi stream operating as a clock master (TDM/I2S) or clock slave (TDM only) supporting 24-bit audio at up to 192 kHz.
After all the hard work of advisory boards and committees, Ethernet has been extended to fulfil the harsh demands of in-vehicle networking. With plenty of bandwidth, guaranteed latencies, and support for specifying presentation time, this veteran technology is again revitalised and ready for the emerging demands of ADAS and autonomous driving. The TC9562 tackles the challenges of in-vehicle networking by offering developers a customisable solution for simpler cost-optimised nodes that are more limited in their functionality, such as audio amplifiers, as well as a compact solution that fulfils the requirements of larger ECUs, requiring Automotive Ethernet support alongside the chosen SoC.
