Feature New Record
Carmakers are facing the next wave of automotive connectivity. Cars will extend their reach, tapping our homes, talking to nearby cars and connecting to myriad other devices. New challenge is to meet bandwidth demands.
BMW is a German luxury automobile, motorcycle, and engine manufacturing company with 116,324 employees worldwide.
Broadcom’s second-generation automotive Ethernet switch with integrated BroadR-Reach PHYs are set to address the increasing load on the car’s network. The next-generation BroadR-Reach automotive Ethernet switch portfolio is developed to securely enable infotainment, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and time-sensitive applications for the in-car network.

Hardware Components
- BroadR­Reach PHYs: automotive Ethernet switch solution

Software Components
- Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)
Real-time driving data, including speed, back-up images, infotainment system data
Cutting Edge (technology has been on the market for < 2 years)
Data Aggregation - Cloud solutions enable aggregation of 'big data' to enable more robust analysis and lower costs.
Real-time Tracking - The location of individuals and assets can be identified in near real-time which creates more port capacity and greater functionality for vehicles.
Network Safety - Device/message authentication and message encryption can protect the car from malicious attacks.
Broadcom was able to cut power consumption by 30% and shrink the package size by half by moving from a 65 nm process node to a 28 nm silicon design.
The IoT ONE Radar indicates the mix of hardware, software and services used in an IoT solution.
Processors provide the intelligence behind IoT systems and are often integrated into system-on-a-chip designs.
Hardware that enables dual directional communication for data collection and control message delivery. Examples include cellular, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi.
Sensors transform energy into electrical data; they are the eyes and ears of IoT. Actuators transform electrical data into energy; they are the muscle of IoT.
Horizontal applications are standardized (e.g., asset tracking). Vertical applications are tailored to specific needs (e.g., delivery fleet management).
IoT analytics includes real-time or edge computing and batch analysis. Analytics can be behavioral, descriptive, predictive, or prescriptive.
Visualization solutions use dashboards, alerts, events, maps, and other tools to present easily comprehensible data to end users.
