HighFlex board for interfacing to different bus systems
- Support for CAN, LIN and FlexRay bus systems
- 4 flexibly configurable channels
- On-board failure routing unit
The DS2671 Bus Board is the interface between the dSPACE Simulator and various bus systems. It has 4 multifunctional channels, each of which can support a bus system that is assigned to it by software. The following buses and protocols are supported:
- CAN (high-speed & fault-tolerant)
- RS232, RS422, RS485
- TLL–based protocols.
With its freely configurable channels, the DS2671 can serve different bus systems for an ECU. The selected bus system can easily be changed from project to project because the channels can be completely configured by software.
Other bus systems and protocols can be added on request.
Each channel on the DS2671 has a bus FPGA, all the transceivers for the standardly supported bus systems and protocols, and a piggyback slot for customer-specific transceivers. The bus system controllers, which include certified IP cores such as the Bosch E-Ray controller for FlexRay, are implemented on the bus FPGA.
To use a bus system or protocol that is not standardly supported, you can install the necessary transceiver in the channel's piggyback slot.
A different bus system can be used on each of the 4 channels of the DS2617.
