IEEE APPROVES STANDARD AMENDMENT PROJECT.
IEEE has formed a task force to develop IEEE P802.3ch Standard for Ethernet Physical Layer Specifications and Management Parameters for Greater Than 1 Gb/s Automotive Ethernet. The new standards development project aims to meet the demand for higher speed Ethernet in the automotive environment to support ongoing technological developments, such as connected cars, advanced driver assisted systems and infotainment systems.
IEEE P802.3ch will bring up to 10 Gb/s to the IEEE 802.3 automotive Ethernet family, enabling a new generation of applications and connectivity, said Steve Carlson, chair of the IEEE P802.3ch Multi-Gig Automotive Ethernet PHY Task Force and president of High Speed Design, Inc. Ethernet standardization will enable rapid advancement in technologies such as driverless or assisted driving systems, and automotive infotainment. We look forward to working collaboratively to build consensus on standards development that will meet the needs of all stakeholders.
Deployment of technology defined by IEEE 802 standards is already globally pervasive, driven by the ever-growing needs of data networks around the world. New application areas are constantly being considered that might leverage IEEE 802 standards in their networks from wireless, through twisted-pair cabling, to fiber-optic cabling solutions.
To better address the needs of all of these areas, IEEE 802 standards are constantly evolving and expanding. The success of IEEE 802 standardsfrom their inception through todayhas been based upon their fair, open and transparent development process.
About the IEEE Standards Association
The IEEE Standards Association, a globally recognized standards-setting body within IEEE, develops consensus standards through an open process that engages industry and brings together a broad stakeholder community. IEEE standards set specifications and best practices based on current scientific and technological knowledge. The IEEE-SA has a portfolio of over 1,200 active standards and over 650 standards under development. For more information visit http://standards.ieee.org.
