Hyundai Partners with Broadcom on In-Vehicle Network

Broadcom announced a joint development agreement with Hyundai Motor to power the next-generation connected car, integrating infotainment, telematics and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) features such as surround view parking and lane departure warning.

The in-vehicle network will be based on Broadcom's BroadR-Reach Ethernet technology, which supports the IEEE 802.1 Audio Video Bridging (AVB)  standard, a key technology for achieving high quality audio and video transmission in automotive by providing guaranteed quality of service (QoS), frame synchronization and timing necessary to stream professional-quality audio and video traffic.

"Hyundai is confident about the viability of Ethernet in the car and looks forward to closely collaborating with Broadcom to develop an Ethernet network for Hyundai vehicles. The in-vehicle Ethernet network will enable key features including infotainment, lane departure warning, park assist and telematics to deliver greater value to our customers.  We chose to partner with Broadcom as they deliver superior Ethernet-based innovation to enrich the driver and passenger experience," stated SunJai Lee, Infortainment Design Division Leader, Hyundai Motor.
