FlexRay

Integrates MAC IP to a broad range of PHY and SerDes IP

Overview

FlexRay was developed by a consortium of automotive manufacturers and suppliers to address the increasing complexity of in-vehicle communication systems. It aims to meet the stringent requirements of modern automotive applications such as x-by-wire systems (where mechanical linkages are replaced by electronic control).

Features

  • Deterministic Communication: FlexRay provides deterministic communication with fixed-time slot allocation for messages, ensuring real-time performance critical for safety-critical applications.
  • Dual Channel Communication: It supports redundant communication channels (A and B channels), enhancing reliability by allowing seamless switching in case of a fault.
  • Dynamic Frame Length: Unlike CAN (Controller Area Network), FlexRay supports dynamic frame lengths, allowing for more flexible data transmission.
  • Flexible Data Rate: FlexRay supports different data rates (up to 10 Mbps), accommodating various bandwidth requirements within a single network.
  • Fault Tolerance: It includes mechanisms for detecting and recovering from errors, ensuring high reliability even in harsh automotive environments.
  • Synchronous and Asynchronous Communication: FlexRay supports both synchronous (time-triggered) and asynchronous (event-triggered) communication modes, catering to different types of messages and applications.
  • Network Management: Provides mechanisms for network configuration, synchronisation, and diagnostics, essential for managing complex automotive networks.
