Don Pannell has architected Ethernet switches and networking solutions for over 20 years, focusing on Automotive Ethernet solutions for the last 10 plus years. He has been an active participant and contributor in both IEEE 802.3 and IEEE 802.1 for over 20 years. Don organized the 802.3 Call for Interest (CFI) for RTPGE which resulted in the 1000BASE-T1 Automotive PHY we have today, and he started the Time-Aware Shaper project in 802.1, now known as IEEE 802.1Qbv. More recently he helped start the new 802.1 Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) Automotive Profile project where he is responsible for creating the Use Case and Requirements document. Don has worked on the IEEE 802.1 AVB/TSN standards since their beginning and he is currently Secretary of the IEEE 1722 working group (which standardize end node protocols for AVB/TSN). He worked on his 1st IEEE standard in 1980 and was Vice Chair of the Board of the VESA standards association in 1990. He has been a lead architect for over 30 years at companies including Sierra Semiconductor, I‐Cube, Marvell and now NXP. Don currently has over 80 patents granted with more in the works and he received his BSEE degree from Loyola University in California.
