I can see this technology becoming widely accepted in cars and especially caravans today. In caravans, we have the luxury of space, and thus having a large screen TV in the caravan should be a no brainer. Advances in SerDes Technology would enable passengers to have the best viewing experience on the road, and make them feel as if they are watching a HD video in their home system.

Why did NS/TI limit this chipset to video transmission? Is this because video tolerates bit errors? SerDes is a great technology for any point-to-point communication need. It could replace a lot of the wiring and very complex, slow buses used now (CAN, FlexRay). This will need to happen anyway as e-cars have much higher datarate requirements and EMI requirements.

This can have many potential applications - like connecting CCD camera and other data sources. This also refers BD Player. Does not it need much more bandwidth?

All the wired multimedia applications can use this chipset. Their data clocking goes from 5 to 85 Mhz. This works upto 10 mtrs.Probably with buffers it can be extended. Most suitable place to employ this is in video coaches .Ser/Des technology supports encrypted video and audio content with full duplex bi-directional control channel over a single wire interface.

You say there is great demand to "reduce expensive cabling and connectors" in the automotive space. This seems counter-intuitive, as accessories in the automotive space are some of the highest mark-up items that car makers sell. $2 worth of lightbulbs and wire becomes a $200 lighting package option. An $89 TomTom navigation system goes for $2000 when embedded into a dashboard (updates are extra). A $60 portable DVD player goes for $2500 when stuffed into the headrest of a driver's seat. Why re-design when you can just mark it up?

SerDes is a very remarkable invention by National Semiconductor, if proper consideration is made in the development of this technology this will also prove equally useful with computing and domestic video viewing needs.
