Symphony Teleca Unveils Ethernet Audio Video Bridging Solution for the Automotive Industry

Symphony Teleca Corporation, the services organization dedicated exclusively to helping clients manage the global convergence of software, the cloud and connected devices, today unveiled its Ethernet Audio Video Bridging (AVB) solution for the automotive industry. The increasing need to support lower cost and high performance in-vehicle networks demands the adoption of new standards like Ethernet AVB. The company’s solution provides automotive OEMs, Tier1s and silicon suppliers a fast and low risk track to Ethernet AVB products.

With increasing multimedia requirements for in-vehicle-infotainment Ethernet AVB provides higher bandwidth and more stable network management capabilities compared to Media Oriented System Transport (MOST) and Controller Area Network (CAN) standards. With a time-synchronized network for audio, video and control data on a single cable it delivers a highly reliable, low latency and low cost in-vehicle network with guaranteed quality of service (QoS). Through simple lightweight cabling, plug-and-play capabilities, scalable and versatile topology support like star, bus and tree, it is the ideal standard for future proof in-vehicle networks. For compliance to other standards Ethernet AVB also supports gateways for heterogeneous networks like CAN, MOST or Flexray.

The Symphony Teleca Ethernet AVB solution provides an affordable, scalable, flexible, robust and security-guaranteed in-vehicle network that helps automotive customers tackle the cost and complexity challenges involved in delivering next-generation in-vehicle-infotainment solutions. The company delivers a complete solution for silicon vendors who want to provide Ethernet AVB capable chipsets, automotive OEMs who consider Ethernet AVB based networks or automotive Tier1 suppliers who plan to provide Ethernet AVB capable ECUs or components.

“We are seeing a tremendous need for new connectivity solutions as part of the connected car evolution and Ethernet AVB is one of the most promising standards to be deployed in next generation vehicles,” said Dean Miles, Senior Vice President Automotive, Symphony Teleca. “Through our investment in an Ethernet AVB solution we will help the automotive industry to faster migrate to this new standard and benefit from its high performance and low cost attributes.”

Key highlights of the Symphony Teleca solution comprise:

  • Full compliance to the Ethernet AVB stack specification for automotive,
  • Endpoint implementation for IEEE802.1AS, 802.1Qav, 802.1Qat & IEEE1722
  • Multimedia & network management middleware development and application
  • Application development for multimedia & network management
  • Adaptable for major silicon & OS vendors with flexible IP models

Symphony Teleca is an end-to-end solution provider for Ethernet AVB covering consulting and proof-of-concept development, implementation of the stack using productized assets, configuration and development of relevant middleware and application components, and full network management as well as test and validation services. The company leverages its vast experience and expertise in development of video distribution systems, TCP/IP stack, PHY & MAC layer drivers, middleware components and application APIs in Open Source.

At the 2013 International CES in Las Vegas Symphony Teleca is showcasing the Ethernet AVB solution pre-integrated on the Freescale iMx6 platform at its LVH Hospitality Suite 2855 as well as at the Genivi CES 2013 Showcase Reception at the Trump International Hotel. Symphony Teleca is also excited to showcase the Ethernet AVB solution pre-integrated on the “Jacinto” DRAxxx family of infotainment processors from Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI), in TI’s CES Village (Las Vegas Hilton North Hall, N115 – N119).

“Ethernet AVB is becoming a key feature for future automotive connectivity,” said Matthew Watson, Automotive Infotainment Processors Product Line Manager, TI. “We are pleased to work with Symphony Teleca to offer a pre-integrated solution on our Jacinto 5 DRA65x family of infotainment processors. Through this collaboration, we provide a seamless option to customers looking to adopt a proven, high-performance Ethernet AVB solution for next-generation vehicles.”

“We have worked with Symphony Teleca to build a flexible and highly reusable Ethernet AVB solution pre integrated into our i.MX 6 Series product family. This will allow our customers to scale Ethernet AVB solutions across a wide range of automotive applications at a lower cost with better time to market allowing them to take full advantage of this emerging technology,” said Dan Loop, Freescale Semiconductor i.MX Automotive Product Marketing Manager.
