Automotive optical Multi-Gig call for interest


The following request for agenda time for a Automotive optical Multi-Gig call for interest has been received from Carlos Pardo. It will be discussed at the IEEE 802 LMSC July 2019 Plenary meeting in Vienna, Austria.

If you have any questions please get in touch with either or directly.


Ethernet is becoming the main in-vehicle communication technology of the automotive industry. Several PHYs have been standardized in IEEE 802.3 to support this automotive market. The first generation Ethernet automotive optical PHY is being designed in by several car manufacturers. To complement this current 1 Gb/s PHY and proposed multi-gig Ethernet copper PHY solutions, a higher data rate optical solution is also required by the automotive industry.


The call for interest will take place during the IEEE 802.3 Opening Plenary on the morning of Monday 15th July. A call for interest consensus building meeting has been scheduled to occur from 18:30 to 19:30 on the evening of Tuesday 16th July. The vote to determine if a Study Group will be formed will take place at the IEEE 802.3 Closing Plenary on the afternoon of Thursday 18th July.
