The integration, says the company, makes the Nvidia AI car supercomputer the first commercially available solution with embedded security built into the core. The 88Q5050 secure switch can handle multi-gigabit applications for OEM car manufacturers to deliver an in-car network that supports sensor fusion, cameras, safety, and diagnostics, while its embedded security helps to prevent vehicles from cyberattacks.

The Nvidia Drive Pegasus computing platform has been designed to handle Level 5 driverless vehicles and compute over 320 trillion operations per second. It combines deep learning, sensor fusion, and surround vision to understand what’s happening around the vehicle in real-time. The Marvell 88Q5050 layer 2 managed secure IP switch enables the fast and safe transmission of this data for next-generation connected vehicles.

The 88Q5050 employs a deep packet inspection engine and trusted boot functionality to ensure a robust level of security. The switch also supports both blacklisting and whitelisting addresses on all of its Ethernet ports to further enhance its security especially against denial of service attacks.

“The 88Q5050 is Marvell’s latest addition to the automotive portfolio of wired and wireless network solutions and is designed to prevent malicious attacks or compromises to data streamed in and out of the vehicle,” says Thomas Lagatta, executive vice president of Sales and Marketing at Marvell. “Marvell has over 20 years of Ethernet IP experience and this partnership with Nvidia demonstrates our continued commitment to innovating and leading in automotive technology. Marvell is excited about the future of automotive and will utilize its extensive portfolio to accelerate the adoption of automotive Ethernet.”

“Nvidia Drive enables automakers, tier 1 suppliers, and startups to accelerate production of automated and autonomous vehicles,” says Gary Hicok, senior vice president of Hardware Development, Nvidia. “Marvell’s new Ethernet switch adds a robust security capability that can handle multi-gigabits of data and help combat the risk of cybercrime.”

The Nvidia Drive Pegasus is expected to start sampling in Q3 2018.
