P802.3cz Multi-gigabit Optical Automotive Ethernet Standard Passed to IEEE-SA Ballot Phase

, , ,

KDPOF is proud to announce the new stage in the P802.3cz standard moving into IEEE-SA ballot phase. The P802.3cz amendment defines an optional start-up procedure that enables the time from power_on=FALSE to a state capable of transmitting and receiving valid data to be less than 100ms and support data rates of 2.5, 5, 10, 25, and 50 Gb/s at the MAC/PLS service interface.

Other important characteristics include the Energy Efficient Ethernet optimized for automotive applications, support in automotive environments, and up to 4 inline connectors for at least 40 m on at least one type of automotive optical cabling. Also, the performance characteristics of an automotive link segment and an optical PHY to support 50 Gb/s point-to-point operations over this link segment support up to 2 inline connectors for at least 15 m on at least one type of automotive optical cabling.

Expect more information and demonstrations in the following months and at the IEEE Ethernet & IP @ Automotive Technology Day in Yokohama, Japan, this November.
