Microchip unveils Automotive-Qualified Gen 4 PCIe Switches


High-speed, low-latency connectivity solutions for distributed, heterogeneous computing systems are a fundamental element in next-generation autonomous driving applications. Microchip Technology Inc. recently unveiled the unique industry-first Gen 4 automotive-qualified PCIe switches. 

This Switchtech PFX, PSX, and PAX switch solutions provide cutting-edge compute interconnect capabilities for Advanced Driver- Assistance Systems (ADAS). 

Krishna Mallampati, Associate Director of Marketing and Applications at Microchip’s data center solutions business unit stated: “Our automotive-qualified portfolio of Switchtec Gen 4 switches provides the lowest latency and high bandwidth required to link the CPU and accelerator building blocks used in ADAS applications. We are delighted to see the culmination of several years of collaboration with key technology partners and customers to bring these solutions to market.”

Michael Truog, senior director of Automotive Platform Architecture at NVIDIA stated: “The qualification of Microchip’s solutions to meet the stringent needs of the automotive market is a significant milestone, and one NVIDIA closely collaborated on. Microchip’s automotive PCIe switches deliver flexibility and advanced programmability, enabling high-speed SoC and GPU connectivity within our NVIDIA DRIVE platform.

According to Microchip’s claims, Switchtec Gen 4 PCIe switches provide the high-speed interconnect that supports distributed, real-time safety-critical data processing in ADAS architectures. PCIe is emerging as the preferred compute interconnect solution for the automotive industry for the same reasons it has become pervasive in the data center market. It provides ultra-low latency and low-power bandwidth scalability to CPUs and specialized accelerator devices.
