There are four main parts to a communication cycle: The ends of the network have termination resistors installed that eliminate problems with signal reflections. Trailer of a FlexRay Frame. All the communication is sent in the form of frames.

FlexRay supports single- and dual-channel configurations which consist of one or two pairs of wires respectively. As synchronization is done on the voted signal, small transmission errors during synchronization that affect the boundary bits may skew the synchronization no more than 1 cycle.

FlexRay_E: Learning Module FlexRay

If it doesn’t broadcast, it loses its spot in the dynamic frame and the next minislot occurs. Most applications require data to be represented in real decimal values with units, scaling, and limits. This site uses cookies to offer you a better browsing experience.

Adoption of a new networking standard in complex embedded designs like automobiles takes time. The payload contains the actual data transferred by the f,exray. This can be done using two more more synchronization nodes. It lets you learn about the basic properties of data communications in a FlexRay network in advance of the workshop.


FlexRay Automotive Communication Bus Overview

The Frame ID defines the slot in which the frame should be transmitted and is used for prioritizing event-triggered frames. Learn more about our privacy policy. Once a minislot occurs, an ECU has a bqsics opportunity to broadcast its frame. Figure 3 illustrates a simple network with four static slots being used by three ECUs.

If the dynamic frame window ends, then the lower-priority minislots must wait until the next cycle for another opportunity to broadcast. Target Group This E-Learning module is intended for all those who wish to gain a better understanding of FlexRay communication technology.

FlexRay is a serial communication technology that is used in particular for data prtoocol in very safety-critical use areas baxics the automobile. The Header CRC is used to detect errors during flexrwy transfer. Ethernet may replace FlexRay for bandwidth intensive, non-safety critical applications. Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. FlexRay supports simple multi-drop passive connections as well as active star connections for more complex networks.

Every FlexRay network may be different, so each node must be programmed with correct network parameters before it can participate on the bus. The Field Bus Exchange Format, or FIBEX file is an ASAM-defined standard that allows network designers, prototypers, validaters, and testers to easily share network parameters and quickly configure ECUs, test basiccs, hardware-in-the-loop simulation systems, and so on for easy access to the bus.

The multi-drop format also fits nicely with vehicle harnesses that commonly share a similar type of layout, simplifying installation and reducing wiring throughout the vehicle.


To prioritize the data, minislots are flexrah to each frame of data that is eligible for transmission in the dynamic segment. The smallest practical unit of time on a FlexRay network is a macrotick. ECU 1 must wait for the protocoo cycle to broadcast. 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 ECU has an independent clock.

While configurable for a particular network, macroticks are often 1 microsecond long. Simplified Synchronization process of a FlexRay network FlexRay has the unique ability to sync up nodes on a network without an external synchronization clock signal.

As there are at most 88 cycles between synchronization BSS1, 8 bits of the last byte, FES and TES – 11 bits of 8 cycles eachand the clock drift is no larger than 1 per cycles, the drift may skew the clock no more than 1 cycle.

Back to Top 7. The trailer contains three 8-bit CRCs to detect errors.

Illustration of a static segment with 3 ECUs transmitting data to 4 reserved slots. At the end ofthe consortium disbanded. Clocks are resynchronized when the voted signal changes from 1 to 0, if the receiver was in either idle state or expecting BSS1.
