Molex and BlackBerry Limited are jointly developing a 10 Gbps Ethernet Automotive Networking platform designed to increase data bandwidth in intelligent connected vehicles. The system features reliable high-speed data transmission, prioritization, scalability and BlackBerry’s advanced embedded security solutions. The new Molex network platform will be officially unveiled at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show during January 9-12 in Las Vegas, Nev.
Based on a future-ready, automotive-grade high-speed gateway, the powerful 10 Gbps Ethernet platform supports legacy and evolving media modules, peripherals and other embedded software systems. This comprehensive platform leverages the following BlackBerry technologies:
• BlackBerry QNX Neutrino SDP 7.0 RTOS, which provides high performance and enhanced kernel-level security through an array of features, including microkernel architecture, file encryption, adaptive time partitioning, a high-availability framework, anomaly detection and multi-level policy-based access control.
• BlackBerry Certicom's Managed PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) Service, to securely provision, authenticate and communicate between modules and other vehicle ECUs and peripheral devices connected to the network. In-vehicle connections can be made via Ethernet IP-based devices or LIN, CAN, USB and other supported legacy communication protocols. As part of the PKI, BlackBerry Certicom is providing an efficient and powerful Elliptic-Curve Cryptography (ECC) solution that can also be extended to communications between the vehicle systems and the cloud.
The Molex 10 Gbps Ethernet Automotive Network features secure over-the-air software and firmware updates and diagnostics over IP (DoIP) to help avoid the need for vehicle recalls and enabling in-vehicle security and diagnostics over IP. Compatibility with existing network components provides OEMs the design flexibility to accommodate different vehicle communication architectures and integrate evolving new technologies.
