FlexRay PCIexpress Interface Board

FlexRay PCIexpress Interface Board

With its new FR-IB100/PCIe IXXAT offers an extremely cost effective and high-performance interface card for FlexRay analysis and control applications as well as for the analysis of the FlexRay start-up behavior (asynchronous analysis mode).

The card comes with an on-board 32 bit microcontroller system, two FlexRay channels (2 x 10 MBit) with Freescale MFR4310 protocol chip, and provides a time stamp resolution of 100 ns.
The FR-IB100/PCIe can be used in desktop PCs at laboratory workstations as well as in industrial computer systems, e.g. at test benches. Due to the compact design, the card can also be installed in low profile cases.

With the supplied drivers for Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 (each 32/64 bit) customer-specific applications can be programmed using C++ or .NET. Example applications in C++ and C # enable an easy and fast start. In addition, IXXAT offers the multibusAnalyser, a powerful tool for analysis and stimulation of FlexRay devices and systems.

For users upgrading from CAN to FlexRay, a FlexRay configuration tool is in-cluded in the scope of delivery enabling an easy control of the large number of FlexRay communication parameters. After entering a few parameters, such as cycle time, number of messages and length, the tool automatically calculates the dependent parameters and creates a file to configure the FlexRay protocol chips.
Users who have a FIBEX file of the FlexRay network can directly configure the card by using the configuration data from the FIBEX file.

Due to the good price-performance ratio, the FR-IB100/PCIe is suitable for pro-duction use and, by the comprehensive software support, best suited for the analysis of FlexRay systems.
