Extended Embedded Platform for automotive bus systems
Compared to the compact FRC-EP170, the FRC-EP190 offers additional FlexRay, CAN and LIN channels CAN FD and analog inputs.
The Embedded Platform forms the basis for manifold automotive testing and analysis applications in vehicles and test benches – both, with the IXXAT ACT tools as well as with customer-specific software solutions.
They are therefore ideal for applications for which several bus systems are to be merged into a single device with its own processing power. The PC is only needed for the configuration or stimulation/visualization of data, as the actual intelligence – for e.g. the transport protocols – is outsourced to the embedded platform.
By default, in addition to FlexRay, CAN, LIN and K-Line also analog/digital IOs and RS232 are available. The Ethernet configuration interface is supplemented by a USB interface. Additional interfaces can be upgraded through internal expansion slots. Thus, besides additional FlexRay and CAN interfaces also EtherCAT, WLAN, Bluetooth and GSM/GPS interfaces can be implemented. The included SD card slot allows the configuration update even without an attached PC as well as the use as multi-bus data logger for large amounts of data.
For most applications, IXXAT offers the appropriate configuration and analysis tools for the Embedded Platform. Nevertheless, there are very specific applications where it is necessary to provide an accurate customized solution. The open architecture of the IXXAT Embedded Platform allows providing adaptations or extensions very quickly. If necessary this can also be performed by the user based on the software development kit.
