IP for Automotive Gateways

Gateway SoCs for automotive networks manage the system connectivity for domains applications. Due to the increased network bandwidth required by distributed sensors and centralized domain compute processing, automotive gateway SoCs are quickly integrating high bandwidth automotive Ethernet Time Sensitive Networking (TSN). To perform advanced network processing, gateway SoCs use the data prioritization and policy capabilities of Ethernet TSN. Providing data traffic routing and management, as well as protocol translation, automotive gateway SoCs perform critical system management. The system security, firewall, and intrusion detection operation of the gateway enables secure Over-the-Air (OTA) software management so various domain functions can be updated on an ongoing basis, enabling new services, applications, and use cases. Synopsys offers a portfolio of silicon-proven IP including up to 10G Ethernet IP supporting Audio Video Bridging (AVB) and TSN specifications for real-time data connectivity, ARC processors with ASIL D safety capabilities for real-time data management, and security IP with root of trust for encryption/description.
