Vehicle Network Timing Analysis



Designing and implementing timing strategies for AUTOSAR-based vehicle networks has to take into account multiple network types, safety considerations relating to message delays, and the ability to test and predict performance of the entire network.  This webinar will look at the timing models of CAN and FlexRay vehicle networks, some of the design and analysis tools available to analyze and predict message transfer performance, and synthesize message frames.

What You Will Learn

  • An introduction to the timing models in CAN and FlexRay networks
  • The challenges and problems to be solved when implementing a network timing model
  • Use of Design Automation tools for timing performance analysis,  and timing frame synthesis
