KDPOF joins forces with Keysight Technologies (leading technology company for advanced design and validation solutions) to advance optical multi-gigabit automotive Ethernet technology. At the IEEE SA Ethernet & IP @ Automotive Technology Day from November 9 to 10, 2022 in Yokohama, Japan, the two technology pioneers will present the first proof of concept demo for the optical automotive ethernet transmitter test including the Corning ClearCurve® multi-mode fibers.
First Optical Automotive Ethernet Transmitter Test Demo Displays Proof of Concept for Multi-gigabit Data Connectivity
“Together with our partner Keysight, we are proud to have the optical fiber, cable, and connectors available today that meet challenging automotive requirements, such as temperature, vibration, aging, dust, and other harsh environment attributes,” stated Carlos Pardo, CEO and Co-founder of KDPOF. “Automotive grade fiber easily delivers 50 Gb/s PAM4 measurements at a link length of 40 m with at least 4 inline connectors.” Multiple tight bends, twists, and knots add little to no additional signal loss. All of these can leave a significant test margin vs link budget of 8 dB. Optical test equipment is available today and the test solution is under development to align with the IEEE 802.3cz standard.
P802.3cz Multi-gigabit Automotive Ethernet Standard Passed to IEEE-SA Ballot Phase
KDPOF welcomes 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 100 ms 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-line connectors for 40 m on at least one type of automotive optical cabling.
KDPOF and Keysight will present the first proof of concept demo for optical automotive ethernet transmitter test at stands 1, 2, and 25 at IEEE SA Ethernet & IP @ Automotive Technology Day from November 9 to 10, 2022 in Yokohama, Japan.
