SAE Convergence 2010

SAN FRANCISCO–The 1394 Trade Association will host a new, comprehensive demonstration of 1394-Automotive at the biennial Convergence Conference in Detroit Oct. 19-20.

At booth 1019, the 1394 Trade Association demonstration will feature a pair of DVD players and an iPOD linked over the 1394-Automotive network to a pair of displays. The demo will use standard and automotive grade Coaxial, STQ (Shielded Twisted Quad) and STP (Shielded Twisted Pair) cabling.

It will show how 1394-Automotive provides the optimal size, weight, cost, flexibility, availability, high level command set, and physical layer performance that makes it the superior choice for vehicle networks. The 1394 Trade Association also will provide technical backgrounders — including the recently published comparison between 1394-Automotive and AVB — to carmakers, suppliers, industry analysts and members of the media who attend Convergence 2010.

Convergence 2010 will be held at the Cobo Center in downtown Detroit. It is sponsored by SAE.
