Next-Gen GMSL SerDes Technology Advances ADAS

Maxim Integrated announces its next-generation gigabit multimedia serial link (GMSL) serializer and deserializer (SerDes) technology to fully support the high bandwidth, complex interconnect, and data integrity requirements required for future automotive infotainment and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). According to Strategy Analytics, automotive sensor data aggregation on the hardware side will be a major challenge due to increasing bandwidth requirements for ADAS and infotainment applications as video resolution improves. The analyst firm expects bandwidth requirements to increase by a factor of approximately 25 from 2017 to 2020, and predicts that a move to higher frame rates and resolutions will increase bandwidth requirements even further. Based on a foundation that pioneered many of the features seen in automotive video interconnect today, Maxim’s new GMSL technology offers the bandwidth, rich features, and flexibility needed to build autonomous driving systems.


From low-power requirements in cameras to widely varying bandwidth of sensor data aggregation, the new technology was carefully designed to address the needs of future systems. Advanced link integrity and diagnostic capabilities enable a breakthrough in link performance monitoring—a vital capability to the design of automotive safety systems.


Sensors Midwest Hits Rosemont, IL October 16-17!

Sensors Midwest, the industry's largest event focusing on sensors, design, and IIoT in the Midwest region, is scheduled for October 16-17 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. Co-located with STMA, the event draws over 1,000 engineers and engineering professionals that are looking for access to the latest sensor advancements and will provide an opportunity to connect with the area's greatest technology leaders and suppliers.


Using shielded twisted pair (STP) or coax cables of up to 15m, this GMSL technology also meets the most stringent EMC requirements of the automotive industry. The new technology is backward-compatible with the current generation of already-deployed GMSL products. In addition, the next-generation GMSL technology reduces cables and simplifies head unit design when used in a remote tuner architecture with radio tuners.
