Broadcom delivers automotive Ethernet switch with the highest bandwidth

Broadcom Inc., a global technology leader specializing in semiconductor and infrastructure software products, has recently announced that it has successfully supplied BCM8958X, the highest bandwidth automotive Ethernet switch device designated to address rising bandwidth needs from in-vehicle networking applications and to simplify SDV (Software-defined vehicles) adoption.

The BCM8958X is rigged with 16 Ethernet ports, of which up to six are 10 Gbps capable and unified 100BASE-T1 and 1000BASE-T1 PHYs, offering higher flexibility and switching capacity required to support central compute ECU architectures and automotive zonal ECU.

Apart from this, the switch is armed with an innovative rule-based packet filter engine capable of adapting to different vehicle operation modes for augmenting driving safety.

Currently, in-vehicle networks are evolving with rising bandwidth demands and design complexity as the number of high-resolution sensors, displays, and cameras has increased. Therefore, zonal ECUs are required to combine the data from these connected devices in actual time and share this data securely across central compute ECUs.

BCM8958X is adjusted so that it can be used in both central compute ECUs and zonal ECUs, which can switch and route high volumes of data for decision-making in real-time.

Along with the broader-Reach® PHYs (BCM8988X, BCM8983X, and BCM8989X) and sensor MCUs (BCM8910X), Broadcom delivers the most inclusive automotive Ethernet portfolio industry for enabling end-to-end network in the car.

It is crucial to note that SDV is evolving rapidly as the next wave of automotive network revolution, increasing its adoption. These vehicles remove the static nature of today’s in-vehicle networks and bring scalability, programmability and flexibility to automating networking to empower real-time capabilities and cost proficiency in the automotive value chain.

The BCM8958X will provide interface scalability, Layer 3 routing, hardware virtualization, MACsec, and Layer 2 security required to support SDV’s new software applications and features.
