Ethernet Bridge IC targets automotive and industrial applications

Toshiba Electronics Europe has unveiled the TC9562 series, the latest member in its 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 AVB and TSN, are becoming adopted in automotive and industrial applications to meet the increased performance requirements.

The TC9562 series has been designed to provide both reliability and performance, delivering Ethernet bridging capability up to 1Gbps transfer rate. The bridge IC also supports Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) protocol for various industrial and commercial applications.

The 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 SGMII 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.
