Presentation at PCI-SIG Virtual Developers Conference 2021, May 25-26
The need for more safe and eco-friendly vehicles drives automotive connectivity towards so-called Zone-Based Architectures. Inside those so-called Zone Gateways PCIe technology provides the connectivity between multiple System-on-Chip (SoC), CPUs, GPUs, and FPGAs for scalable performance. Within the automotive network, multiple Zone Gateways connect with each other via the emerging IEEE standards “Time Sensitive Networking” (TSN).
Today, Fraunhofer and MLE can provide a working proof-of-concept in form of a digital circuit & system stack which encapsulates and decapsulates PCIe packets (and other protocols) over real-time automotive TSN Ethernet and which scales up to 100 Gbps.
