HSINCHU, Taiwan – December 15, 2016 – Realtek Semiconductor Corp. (Taiwan Stock Exchange: 2379.TW), one of the world’s leading IC providers, today announced that its Automotive Camera SoC integrated with Audio/Video processor and Ethernet 100BASE-T1 (RTL9020AA) has received an Innovative Product Award 2016 from the Hsinchu Science Park Administration in Taiwan.
With fully autonomous driving on the horizon, automakers are designing an ever-increasing number and variety of sensors into their vehicles. As a result, sensor data processing and communication requires ever-higher bandwidth. The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Standards Association (IEEE-SA) has standardized 100BASE-T1 and 1000BASE-T1 protocols to meet these needs. Realtek’s automotive Ethernet portfolio provides customers with total solutions that include the RTL9020AA, the world’s first highly integrated Ethernet-ready camera SoC. Customers achieve the flexibility of designing various topologies using Realtek PHYs and multi-port Switches, and can additionally apply the RTL9020AA to implement rear-view and surround-view systems. Realtek RTL9020AA provides ultra-low power consumption, excellent heat dissipation, and high-definition video requirements in a competitive package size (9x9mm) and offers the following technical and market advantages:
- World’s first highly integrated multimedia and Ethernet SoC
- 100BASE-T1-ready for reduced cable weight and cost
- Robust electromagnetic interference protection
- Embedded AVB (Audio Video Bridging) function
- HDR (High Dynamic Range) support up to 120dB
- Embedded 2D/3D Noise reduction
- Very low-power consumption in Ultra Sleep mode (35µA)
- OPEN alliance TC10 sleep & wake-up standard compliant
“The expansion of computing technology and automation into automobiles requires modern vehicles to be ‘network-ready’ as never before”, said Realtek’s Vice President and Spokesman, Yee-Wei Huang. “Realtek's RTL9020AA is the world’s first highly integrated multimedia and Ethernet SoC. It was designed for low-power consumption, video compression up to Full-HD resolution, and 100BASE-T1 single unshielded-twisted-pair cable for reduced weight and cost”.
