Choosing the Right High-Speed SerDes Technology for ADAS and Infotainment Systems

As infotainment and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) become increasingly sophisticated, accurate and real-time data processing has become more critical for vehicles. The only technology that can manage the explosion of video, audio, and communications data fueling these applications are high-speed serial links. High bandwidth, performance, and reliability of these serial links will continue to be key requirements as the automotive industry advances toward fully autonomous cars. In this paper, we will examine how high-speed serial links enable next-generation vehicles.
