Ethernet-AVB/TSN Connectivity IC for Automotive and Industrial Applications


  • High-Speed PCIe (5.0GT/s) to Ethernet AVB/TSN Bridging
  • Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) Protocol Support
  • Programmable On-chip ARM┬«Cortex┬«-M3 MCU (187MHz)
  • Automotive IATF16949, Small Package 9 x9 mm

The latest member of Toshiba's Ethernet connectivity IC lineup provides advanced Ethernet capability for automotive and industrial applications.

It enables deterministic real-time performance up to 1 Gbps Ethernet transfer rates and supports Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) protocol. The optimized hardware is complemented by a programmable ARM®Cortex®-M3 core which can be used to implement additional features offloading the host CPU or to enable stand-alone operation for customized audio endpoints.
