Conclusion The FlexRay communications network delivers the deterministic, fault-tolerant and high-speed bus system performance requirements for the next generation of automobiles.

FlexRay – Wikipedia

Flexgay embedded networks have a small number of high-speed messages and a large number of lower-speed, less-critical networks. Embedded networks are different from PC-based networks in that they have a closed configuration and do not change once they are assembled in the production product. Symbol Window The Symbol window is primarily used for maintenance and identification of special flexrxy such as cold-start cycles.

This is extremely useful when calculating control loops that depend on consistently spaced data. Because the exact point in time is known in the cycle, the data is deterministic and programs know exactly how old the data is.

Frame Format Figure 7. The static segment, represented as the blue portion of the frame, is the space in the cycle dedicated to scheduling tlexray number of time-triggered frames. FlexRay is a protocok communication technology that is used in particular for data communication in very safety-critical use areas in the automobile.


This article needs additional citations for verification. Each bit to be sent is held on the bus for 8 sample clock cycles.

To start a FlexRay cluster, at least 2 different nodes are required to send startup frames. Most applications require data to be represented in real decimal values with units, scaling, and limits. Many aspects of FlexRay are designed to keep costs down while delivering top performance fllexray a rugged environment.

FlexRay Automotive Communication Bus Overview

Too much or too little termination can break a FlexRay network. The frame is divided into three segments: Header, Payload, and Trailer.

The receiver keeps a buffer of the last 5 samples, and uses the majority of the last 5 samples as the input signal. The dynamic segment operates more like CANwith nodes taking control of the bus as available, allowing event-triggered behavior.

FlexRay supports single- and dual-channel configurations which consist of one or two pairs of wires respectively. Symbol Window Typically used for network badics and signaling for starting the network.

Hybrid Network The bus and star topologies can be combined to form a hybrid topology. FlexRay accomplishes this hybrid of core static frames fpexray dynamic frames with a pre-set communication cycle that provides a pre-defined space for static and dynamic data.

For security-critical applications, the devices connected to the bus may use both channels for transferring data. The Cycle Count contains progocol value of a counter that advances incrementally each time a Communication Cycle starts.


To accommodate a wide variety of data without slowing down the FlexRay cycle with an excessive number of static slots, the dynamic segment allows occasionally transmitted data. Frame to Signal conversion FlexRay data is represented in bytes.

FlexRay supports simple multi-drop passive connections as well as active star connections for more complex networks. Back to Top 7. This not only simplifies your entry into the baskcs.

FlexRay is commonly used in a simple multi-drop bus topology that features a single network cable run that connects multiple ECUs together. Static Clexray Figure 3: FlexRay delivers tlexray error tolerance and time-determinism performance requirements for x-by-wire applications i. The green cells are sampling points. FlexRay Basics Many aspects of FlexRay are designed to keep costs down while delivering top performance in a rugged environment.

Views Read Edit View history. Logic analyzers and bus analyzers are tools which collect, analyze, decode, store signals so people can view the high-speed waveforms at their leisure. Each byte takes 80 cycles to transfer.
