Automotive Ethernet guide

Intrepid Control Systems’ new book Automotive Ethernet - The Definitive Guide describes the technology behind the biggest revolution in automotive networking since the 1980s. Ethernet, the most widely used local area networking technology in the world, is moving from the server rooms of automobile manufacturers to their vehicles. On display at SAE 2014 Convergence, Automotive Ethernet - The Definitive Guide describes the fundamentals of networking, data link, and physical layers of industry-standard Ethernet variants, as well as the new one twisted pair 100 Base Ethernet or BroadR-Reach technology developed by Broadcom specifically for vehicle use. Topics covered in Automotive Ethernet - The Definitive Guide include: in-vehicle networking requirements, comparing Ethernet to CAN and other existing networks (such as LIN, MOST, and FlexRay), TCP/UDP, IPv4/IPv6, and Diagnostics over IP. Also discussed in the book are the Audio Video Bridging standards used to transport media over Ethernet: Stream Reservation Protocol (802.1Qat), Forward-Queueing and Time-Sensitive Streams (802.1Qav), Timing and Synchronization for Time-Sensitive Applications or (802.1as), and Transport Protocol for Time-Sensitive Applications (IEEE 1722), and more.
