Advanced Analog Integrated Circuits (Praktikum)


Automotive Data Communication (Ethernet)

With the ongoing trend of automotive industry, the amount of data being transferred in the vehicle is increasing rapidly requiring a higher bandwidth communication between the modules within not only the vehicle itself but also as a node in a higher level network. In the last decades, protocols such as LIN (Local Interconnect Network), CAN (Controller Area Network), MOST (Media Oriented Systems Transport) and FlexRay have been the accepted standards within the automotive communication designs. These speed of these protocols limit some of the current and new upcoming features and applications on the vehicles. Ethernet protocol has proven to be an acceptable standard for increasing the data transfer speed up to 40times (1 Gbit/s) and even higher within automotive communications. Standards and models in this area, as well as the electrical physical layer design for automotive environments is the current challenge. The goals of this project is:

  • Understand the automotive requirements
  • Understand the impact of the external noise sources within the automotive environment
  • Fully understand the 1000Base-T1 Ethernet channel
  • Build a 1000Base-T1 Ethernet PHY architecture that is immune to these external noise and interferences or actively cancels the impact with a robust and low power solution
  • Prove the concept by implementing the electrical physical layer featuring a bi-directional transmission interface that will meet IEEE 802.3 standards


Hossein Ghafarian was born in Mashhad, Iran, in 1989. He received the B.S. degree in electrical and electronic engineering from Ferdowsi University, Mashhad, Iran, in 2011, and the M.S. degree in microsystem engineering from IMTEK, Albert Ludwig University of Freiburg, Germany, in 2014. He subsequently joined the Chair of Mixed Signal Circuit Design (MSC) at TU Berlin, Germany. He is currently working toward the Ph.D. degree at MSC chair in the research area of Automotive Data Communication (Ethernet).
