Software stack for automotive audio/video certified by AVnu Alliance

June 07, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Excelfore, a company working in connected car platforms, has announced that its Audio Video Bridging/Time Sensitive Networking (AVB/TSN) software stack platform for audio networking as well as video end points has achieved AVnu Certification, becoming the first AVB/TSN software reference module to bear the AVnu-certified logo.

The AVnu Alliance is an industry consortium driving open, standards-based deterministic networking; it grants its certification mark to those devices that have passed all interoperability testing conducted by its third-party testing house, the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL).


The newly AVnu-certified Excelfore software reference platform is a scalable, economical and production-ready embedded route to build a range of AVB-enabled audio or video products. The platform can be customized and integrated into automotive infotainment end points, ADAS cameras for automotive, audio amplifier integration, remote smart tuners, media gateways and a number of other professional AV and automotive applications.


Excelfore comments, "We encourage manufacturers and OEMs to ask for AVnu-certified components. An Avnu-certified software stack enables designers to confidently add AVB/TSN to products with a faster time to market. We are committed to continuing our efforts towards AVnu certification for our other products including our smart camera for automotive and industrial
