New IC Supports Time-Sensitive Networking Protocol and Ethernet Bridging Bandwidth up to 1Gbps
IRVINE, Calif. – Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. (“Toshiba”) today has announced TC9562 series, its latest member in the automotive network bridge IC product line. The TC9562 series provides advanced Ethernet capability for telematics and infotainment systems for the automotive segment.
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 AVB1 and TSN2, 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 bandwidth. 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 802.1AS3 and IEEE 802.1Qav4, as well as TSN standards IEEE 802.1Qbv5, IEEE 802.1Qbu6 and IEEE 802.3br6. The New IC also supports a broad range of interfaces including PCI Express® 2.0 and 1.0, I2S/TDM, RGMII, RMII, MII7 and an option for SGMII7 for expanded interfaces to various IVI SoC solutions.
“We had the pleasure of working with Toshiba to feature their Ethernet bridge IC solutions in our industry-leading Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 820A Platform,” said Shyam Krishnamurthy, senior director of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., “We look forward to continuing our combined efforts to design cutting-edge solutions to support highly advanced automotive cockpit and telematics applications.”
Shardul Kazi, Chief Marketing Officer at Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc., commented, “We are pleased to expand the successful automotive Ethernet bridge IC series to the market. We hope to help accelerate the Ethernet adoption in automotive applications.”
The TC9562 series will be automotive qualified8 and packaged in P-LFBGA120 in 9mm x 9mm package. Sample shipments will start in February 2019, and volume production will start in October 2019.
