Details on New MB88395 Controller for 1394 Automotive Networking
SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 6 /CNW/ -- Fujitsu Microelectronics America, Inc.
(FMA) today published a new technology backgrounder entitled "How the 1394
Automotive Network Simplifies Infotainment Delivery."
The new backgrounder describes the 1394 Automotive standard, which
provides the bandwidth, flexibility, cost-effectiveness, and technological
features to satisfy requirements for infotainment networking. The new Fujitsu
1394 Automotive controller incorporates all the advantages that IEEE 1394
brings to the automotive world, while providing a wealth of added
functionality that simplifies system integration and minimizes costs.
The backgrounder begins by comparing the three leading contenders for
automotive infotainment networking--1394 Automotive, Media Oriented System
Transport (MOST), and Gigabit Ethernet--and outlines some of the tradeoffs
involved in selecting a networking technology. The paper then describes the
new Fujitsu MB88395, a single-chip controller IC that complies with
IEEE-1394-2008. As the world's first 1394 Automotive controller for HD video
in-vehicle networks, the chip integrates PHY/Link, 800 Mbps bus speeds and
built-in SmartCODEC compression.
"This new technology backgrounder highlights the advantages of the 1394
Automotive standard by providing a good analysis of three competing in-vehicle
networking technologies," said Akio Nezu, senior manager of product marketing,
Automotive Business Group at Fujitsu Microelectronics. "At the heart of these
comparisons is the single-chip Fujitsu 1394 Automotive controller -- the
MB88395 -- which opens up an enormous variety of opportunities for
infotainment systems for today and tomorrow."
