AUTOMOTIVE ELECTRONICS ARE BECOMING MORE COMPLEX with the addition of advanced sensors, high-resolution displays, on-vehicle cameras, automated driver assistance systems (ADAS), and their data transmission and controls. Toshiba’s automotive-grade Ethernet solution also supports Ethernet-AVB, which is an important factor for multimedia applications. In addition, the device will be AEC-Q100 qualified to ensure performance in rigorous automotive environments. In particular, for emerging autonomous vehicle systems, a reliable, high-speed communications network is an essential requirement. The TC9560AXBG micro-controller supports CAN FD and provides two channels.

Connected to an application processor or other system-on-chip (SoC) host, the micro-controller allows the host device to deliver audio, video, and data information through the network in an automotive environment. Connection to the host is achieved via PCI Express, HSIC or Time Division Multiplex for audio traffic. The IC’s RGMII/RMII interface connects to the Ethernet switch or PHY device, and both AVB and legacy traffic are supported. An on-chip ARM Cortex-M3 processor can perform system control and management.
