The Aquantia AQcelerate AQVC107 Automotive Ethernet controller provides the Multi-Gig connectivity for a new class of In-Vehicle Networks (IVN) that supports up to Level 4 and Level 5 autonomous driving. The AQVC107 PCIe Multi-Gig MAC+PHY Ethernet controller implements all the necessary electronic circuitry to communicate among the GPUs/CPUs, switches, sensors and ECUs that are part of the IVN. It is designed to support data rates up to 10Gbps over automotive-grade copper cabling.
The AQVC107 is Automotive qualified based on AEC-Q100 industry Standard Target applications and integrates both the MAC and the PHY in one package to enable designers to connect the GPU/CPU and switch via Automotive cable for communication within the IVN.
By supporting up to 10Gbps the AQVC107 can meet the stringent requirements for level four and five autonomous, including the highest resolution cameras, and the need for redundant and secure networks that run on reliable and low-cost copper cabling. These requirements are driving the industry towards Multi-Gig Ethernet over copper – the perfect fit for Aquantia’s deep networking expertise, knowledge, and experience.
