Ethernet AVB(Audio Video Bridging) is a networking standard developed by the IEEE
to transport timing-critical data such as audio and video over Ehernet.
Ze-PRO AVB (Endpoint) is a protocol stack library to easily implement endpoint function
of Ethernet AVB.


for Automotive Use
When used in automotive, EthernetAVB can simplify cabling and wiring for in-vehicle AV network connecting speakers, monitors and cameras. It reduces weight and increases fuel efficiency.
Functions of time synchronization and bandwidth reservation achieve a high-quality in-car AV infotainment

Ze-PRO AVB Evalutaion Kit (RZ/A1LU AVB board)

Ze-PRO AVB Evaluation Kit (RZ/A1LU AVB board) is a hardware and software combination that allows users to try mutual communication via Ethernet AVB. The kit contains Ze-PRO AVB (Endpoint) implemented in RZ/A1LU, a suitable CPU for audio processing provided by Renesas Electronics.

  • Verify behavior of IEEE802.1AS (Time Syncronization), IEEE802.1Qat( Bandwidth reservation )and IEEE802.1Qav(Priority Control)

  • Verify transaction of Audio data (16-bits sampling, 2-Channels (L/R) from Talker to Lister in IEEE1722a AAF (AVTP Audio Format)

  • Software for IEEE1722a AAF configuration and analysis is provided in source code to enable format rewrite (ex. number of channels, change to another format)

  • Option kit is available for one to many and many to many transaction.


  • * AVB Switch is not required for one-to-one transaction
