The clock is sent in fledray static segment. To start a FlexRay cluster, at least 2 different nodes are required to send startup frames.

Most high-level applications do not interact with the symbol window. Symbol Window Typically used for network maintenance and signaling for starting the network. Simplified Synchronization process of a FlexRay network.

For further navigation please use the arrows within the gray bar in the top right corner. In-cycle control reading 4 wheel positions and updating a vehicle control output in a single FlexRay cycle.

This means that, if ECU-s is a sender and ECU-r is a receiver, then for every cycles of the sender there will be between and cycles of the receiver.

Each ECU has an independent clock. 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 protocpl 1 per cycles, the fpexray may skew the clock no more than 1 cycle. While specific network implementations vary, typical FlexRay networks have a cabling impedance between 80 flexry ohms, and the end nodes are terminated to match this impedance. The Cycle Count contains the value of a counter that advances incrementally each time a Communication Cycle starts.

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. The errors are moved to the extreme cycles, and the clock is synchronized fllexray enough for the drift to be small. After years of partnership with OEMs, tool suppliers, and end users, flexry FlexRay standard has emerged as the in-vehicle communications bus to meet these new challenges in the next generation of vehicles.


To facilitate maintaining network configurations between nodes, FlexRay committee standardized a format for the storage and transfer of these parameters in the engineering process. So in the worst case the two middle bits are correct, and thus the sampled value is correct. Symbol Window The Symbol window is primarily used for maintenance and identification of special cycles such as cold-start cycles. 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.

FlexRay Automotive Communication Bus Overview

Solutions for FlexRay Networking. In-cycle control Figure The trailer contains three 8-bit CRCs to detect errors. Too flexra or too little termination can break a FlexRay network.

While configurable for a particular network, macroticks are often 1 microsecond long. Understanding how FlexRay works is important to engineers across all aspects of the vehicle design and production process.

FlexRay Automotive Communication Bus Overview – National Instruments

When flexra slot occurs in time, the reserved ECU has the opportunity to transmit its data into that slot. Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable tutorlal. Technical and de facto standards for wired computer buses. Figure 13 illustrates an example where four wheel positions are broadcast in the static slots of the frame. The smallest practical unit of time on a FlexRay network is a tutprial.

Illustration of a static slot with ECU 2 missing. 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. High-Performance Powertrain, Safety Drive-by-wire, active suspension, adaptive cruise control. Learn more about our privacy policy. Header, Payload, and Trailer. Single-cycle transmission errors may affect results near the boundary of the bits, but will not affect cycles in the middle of the 8-cycle region.


If one of the branches of the star is cut or shorted, the other legs continuing functioning. The segment is a fixed length, so there is a limit of the fixed flexraj of data that can be placed in the dynamic segment per cycle.

The ends of the network have termination resistors installed that eliminate problems with signal reflections. Multi-drop Bus FlexRay is commonly used in a simple multi-drop bus topology protocl features a single network cable run that connects multiple ECUs together. Views Read Edit View history.

The clocks are resynchronized frequently enough to assure that this causes no problems. 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.

If nothing is being communicated, the bus is held in state 1 high voltageso every receiver knows that the communication started when the voltage drops to 0. As with any multi-drop bus, only one node can electrically write data to the bus at a time. January Learn how and when to remove this template message.
