Payload of a FlexRay Frame.

The static segment, represented as the blue portion of the frame, is the space in the cycle dedicated to scheduling a number of time-triggered frames. Retrieved 21 March This page was last edited on 17 Novemberat High-Performance Powertrain, Safety Drive-by-wire, active suspension, adaptive cruise control. After years of partnership with OEMs, tool suppliers, and end users, the FlexRay standard has emerged as the in-vehicle communications bus to meet these new challenges in the next generation of vehicles.

While specific network implementations vary, typical FlexRay networks have a cabling impedance between 80 and ohms, and the end nodes are terminated to match this impedance. In-cycle control reading 4 wheel positions and updating a vehicle control output in a single FlexRay cycle. FlexRay supports single- and dual-channel configurations which consist of one or two pairs of wires respectively. FlexRay has the unique ability to sync up nodes on a network without an external synchronization clock signal.

FlexRay Automotive Communication Bus Overview – National Instruments

Because the exact point in time is known in the cycle, the data is deterministic and programs know exactly how old the data is. Multi-drop Bus FlexRay is flexrya used in a simple multi-drop bus topology that features a single network cable run that connects multiple ECUs together. Startup Frames and Sync Frames. Figure 13 illustrates an example where four wheel positions are broadcast in the static slots of the frame.

baaics Increasing Communications Demands For automobiles to continue to improve safety, increase performance, reduce environmental impact, and enhance comfort, the speed, quantity and reliability of data communicated between a car’s electronic control units ECU must increase. FlexRay Basics Many aspects of FlexRay are designed to keep costs down while delivering top performance in a rugged environment.

Clocks are resynchronized when the voted signal changes flexrray 1 to 0, if the receiver was in either idle state or expecting BSS1.

Ethernet may replace FlexRay for bandwidth intensive, non-safety critical applications. Drift is smaller than 1 cycle per cycles, and during transmission the clock is synchronized more than baslcs every cycles. The first series production vehicle with FlexRay was at the end of in the BMW X5 E70[3] enabling a new and fast adaptive damping system.

So in the worst case the two middle bits are correct, and thus the sampled value is correct. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.


To start a FlexRay cluster, at least 2 different nodes are required to send startup frames. Learn more about our privacy policy.

FlexRay Automotive Communication Bus Overview

The network idle time is of a pre-defined, known length by ECUs. Higher priority data receives a minislot closer to the beginning of the dynamic frame. Frame Format Figure 7. For security-critical applications, the devices connected to the bus may use both channels for transferring data.

Back to Top 7. Since long runs of wires tend to conduct more environmental noise such as electromagnetic emissions from large electric motors, using multiple legs reduces the amount of dlexray wire for a segment and can help increase noise immunity. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Within the physical layer, FlexRay provides fast error detection and signaling, as well as error containment through an independent Bus Guardian.

FlexRay – Wikipedia

The FlexRay standard supports “Star” configurations which consist of individual links that connect to a central active node. The clock is sent in the static segment.

Termination is one of the most frequent causes of frustration when connecting a FlexRay node to a test setup.
