BroadR-Reach® Ethernet Technology

As consumer demand for in-vehicle connectivity continues to grow, automotive manufacturers are under constant pressure to deliver competitive, innovative features while minimizing cost. BroadR-Reach Ethernet automotive technology allows multiple in-vehicle systems (such as infotainment, automated driver assistance and on board-diagnostics) to simultaneously access information over a single unshielded 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, BroadR-Reach® Ethernet technology delivers high-performance bandwidth of 100 Mbps per port while dramatically reducing connectivity costs and cabling weight.

BroadR-Reach automotive Ethernet solutions are available from the following semiconductor companies:
BroadR-Reach Ethernet Supports Key Requirements:
  • Dedicated bandwidth per port
  • Advanced cable diagnostics for each link
  • IEEE standard (AVB) for entertainment audio/video processing
