Automotive SerDes Applications
Advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving have become megatrends and will require more and faster SerDes links to safely connect camera, radar, and LiDAR sensors to the sensor fusion processor. The more widespread adoption of virtual instrument clusters and larger infotainment displays in consumer vehicles also drives the need for higher data rates. At the same time, these applications require lightweight and low-power hardware as well as low production costs.
Optimized next generation SerDes connections:
- Point-to-point link with simple daisy-chain extension
- Strongly asymmetric data rates for low power
- Slim end-node design for sensors and displays
