Buy Book

Ethernet, the most widely-used local area networking technology in the world, has moved from the server rooms of automobile manufacturers to their vehicles. As the quantity and variety of electronic devices in cars continue to grow, Ethernet has proven to be a useful and powerful technology for applications in vehicles. Automotive Ethernet – The Definitive Guide provides an overview on the numerous Automotive Ethernet physical layers as well as Ethernet-based protocols targeted for in-vehicle networking.

Topics covered:

This extensive volume covers automotive electromagnetic, environmental and electrical requirements; network fundamentals and the OSI Reference Model; IEEE Project 802 structure and working groups; IEEE 802.3 (Ethernet) Physical Layer and Media Access Control, physical layers including 100BASE-T1, 1000BASE-T1, MultiGBASE-T1, 10BASE-T1S and others, MAC addressing, frame formats and hardware devices; a comparison of Ethernet to traditional automotive networks such as CAN/CAN FD, LIN, MOST and FlexRay; and the TCP/IP protocol suite, including IPv4/IPv6, ICMP, ARP, NAT, TCP, UDP, Diagnostics over IP (DoIP) and SOME/IP. In addition, the Audio Video Bridging (AVB) / Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) suite used to transport media over Ethernet is covered, including key underlying standards: SRP (IEEE 802.1Qat), FQTSS (IEEE 802.1Qav), gPTP (IEEE 802.1AS), and AVTP (IEEE 1722). The book also describes how diagnostics differ in an Ethernet environment, and details some of the tools available for measurement, calibration and diagnostics (MCD).


Intended Audience:

  • Electronics engineers, network communication engineers, testers, and technicians involved in automotive electronics development. If you’re an automotive engineer who currently does any type of testing, validation, or development on CAN, LIN, FlexRay, MOST, or other automotive networks, then this book is for you.
  • Ethernet hardware engineers and network application designers who want to learn about Automotive Ethernet and how it differs from traditional Ethernet implementations.
  • Android, Linux, iOS, and Windows developers. As Ethernet is implemented more widely in vehicles, and new functionality becomes possible, the demand will grow for expertise in using these operating systems and other computer systems on Ethernet.
  • Engineers and software developers in training at the university level.
