In-Vehicle Networking (IVN) is the specialized internal communications network that interconnects mission critical components and systems to onboard computer control units, safety applications and the driver.


IVN is experiencing strong growth due to rising complexities in next-generation transportation applications and the rapid advancement of technology. In this webinar, Avnet’s own Jason Struble and guest technology partner, Bob Card from ON Semiconductor will discuss how automotive E/E (electrical/electronic) architecture has progressed through four distinct trends:


  • Distributed and de-centralized
  • Domain Controlled with early centralization
  • Inter Domain Controlled with more centralization
  • Zonal Control with Full Centralization


We’ll examine how the IVN landscape, specifically LIN (Local Interconnect Network), FlexRay, CAN (Controller Are Network), CAN-FD (Controller Are Network – Flexible Data rate), SBC (Systems Basis Chips), and automotive Ethernet, have navigated these four trends, and what lies ahead.
