Broadcom Corp. announced a joint development agreement with Hyundai Motor to power the next-generation connected car with integrated infotainment, telematics and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) features such as surround view parking and lane departure warning into Hyundai vehicles.

Based on Broadcom's BroadR-Reach Ethernet technology, the single high-bandwidth in-vehicle network will deliver cost-effective, lightweight 100Mbit/s connectivity to advance integration of safety applications in the vehicle, said the firm.

As members of the AVnu Alliance and OPEN Alliance (One-Pair Ether-Net) Special Interest Group (SIG), Broadcom and Hyundai Motor have partnered since 2011 to drive wide-scale adoption of Ethernet-based automotive connectivity. Ethernet enables an open, scalable network for powering in-vehicle infotainment and ADAS, while supporting faster implementation of next-generation technologies and multiple networks, improving the ability to share data from a common source to the entire network.

BroadR-Reach Ethernet also supports the IEEE 802.1 Audio Video Bridging (AVB) standard, a key technology for achieving high quality audio and video transmission in automotive by providing guaranteed quality of service (QoS), frame synchronisation and timing necessary to stream professional-quality audio and video traffic.

Ali Abaye, senior director, Product Marketing, Infrastructure and Networking Group, said in a statement, "Demand for advanced safety features, together with the need for higher bandwidth and faster connectivity within and between in-car networks, continues to grow at a rapid pace. Broadcom's Ethernet solutions, pervasive throughout cloud-scale data centre, carrier and enterprise networks, are now making their way into the vehicle, enabling a more scalable and open architecture. Our collaboration with Hyundai Motor will make features previously only available in luxury models accessible to a broader number of drivers, ultimately improving automotive safety for the masses."
