Real-time processing and reliable data transmission is critical to support telematics, infotainment, driver assistance systems and various sensor data to enable a fully connected vehicle. New standards, including Ethernet AVB and TSN, are becoming adopted in automotive and industrial applications to meet the increased performance requirements.
Toshiba’s TC9562 series is designed for reliability and performance delivering Ethernet bridging capability up to 1Gbps transfer rate. The new automotive bridge IC also supports Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) protocol for various industrial and commercial applications.
The TC9562 series’s advanced capabilities supports Ethernet AVB specification, specifically IEEE 802.1AS ] and IEEE 802.1Qav, as well as TSN standards IEEE 802.1Qbv, IEEE 802.1Qbu and IEEE 802.3br. The IC also supports a broad range of interfaces, including PCI Express 2.0 and 1.0, I2S/TDM, RGMII, RMII, MII and an option for SGMI for expanded interfaces to various IVI SoC solutions.
The TC9562 series will be automotive qualified and packaged in P-LFBGA120 in 9mm x 9mm package. Samples shipments will start in February 2019 and volume production will start in October 2019.
