Molex and BlackBerry team up on the development of a 10 Gbps Ethernet Automotive Networking platform

Molex has teamed up with BlackBerry on the development of a 10 Gbps Ethernet Automotive Networking platform designed to increase data bandwidth in intelligent connected vehicles. Integrating very 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 (CES) in Las Vegas.

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.
