Granite River Labs and KDPOF Collaborate to Deliver ISO-Standardized Automotive Ethernet Over Plastic Optical Fiber

ISO 21111 Enables Standardized Design and Testing of Optical Gigabit Networks

Granite River Labs (GRL), provider of engineering services and test solutions for connectivity and charging, and KDPOF, supplier for gigabit transceivers over POF (Plastic Optical Fiber), announced that a specification for 1 Gb/s optical connectivity in vehicles has been adopted by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

ISO published two new standards for in-vehicle Ethernet series 21111, forming the basis for reliable implementations of systems that realize in-vehicle 1 Gb/s Optical Ethernet as a physical layer.

ISO 21111-3:2020 specifies additional features to IEEE 802.3bvTM, such as wake-up and synchronized link sleep algorithms. ISO 21111-5:2020 specifies requirements at the system level and a  conformance and interoperability test plan for electronic control unit (ECU) providers that implement an optical 1 Gb/s physical layer as specified in ISO 21111-3.
