Simplified Synchronization process of a FlexRay network FlexRay has the unique ability to sync up nodes on a network without an external synchronization clock signal.

FlexRay Automotive Communication Bus Overview

This is extremely useful when calculating control loops that depend on consistently spaced data. To facilitate rlexray network configurations between nodes, FlexRay committee standardized a format for the storage and transfer of these parameters in the engineering process.

Actual FlexRay networks may contain up to several dozen static slots. This E-Learning module is intended for all those who wish to gain a better understanding of FlexRay communication technology. Back to Top 5. Each byte takes 80 cycles to transfer. At each time, only one ECU writes to the bus. The Payload Length contains the number of words which are transferred in the frame. The bus has certain disadvantages like lower operating voltage levels and asymmetry of the edges, which leads to problems in extending the network length.

By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Protocool and Privacy Policy. The errors are moved to the extreme cycles, and the clock is synchronized frequently enough for the drift to be small.

Clocks are resynchronized when the voted signal changes from 1 to 0, if the receiver was in either idle state or expecting BSS1. Data Security and Error Handling The FlexRay network provides scalable fault-tolerance by allowing single or dual-channel communication.

While flexible and easy to expand, this technique does not allow for very high data rates and cannot guarantee timely delivery of data.

This allows very high-speed control rates to be realized on a FlexRay network. The clock drift must be not more than 0. Dynamic Segment The dynamic segment behaves in a fashion similar to CAN and is used for a wider variety of event-based data that fleexray not pritocol determinism. Logic analyzers and bus analyzers are tools which collect, analyze, decode, store signals so people can view the high-speed waveforms at their leisure. As synchronization is done on the voted signal, small transmission errors during synchronization that affect the boundary bits may skew the synchronization no more than 1 cycle.

Differential signaling on each pair of wires reduces the effects of external noise on the network without expensive shielding. There are a variety of schemes used to prevent contention on a bus. All the communication is sent in the form of frames.

The Frame ID defines the slot in which the frame should be transmitted and is used for prioritizing event-triggered frames. Figure 5 shows ECU 1 broadcasting in its minislot since the first 7 minislots chose not to broadcast. Other nodes on the network wait for the sync frames to be broadcast, and measure the time between successive broadcasts in order to calibrate their internal clocks to the FlexRay time.

Serial Bus Systems in the Automobile – FlexRay for data exchange in highly critical safety applications.

The FlexRay communications protpcol delivers the deterministic, fault-tolerant and high-speed bus system performance requirements for the next generation of automobiles. BMW airs Ethernet plans”. To prioritize the data, minislots are pre-assigned to each frame of data that is eligible for transmission in the dynamic segment.

Payload of a FlexRay Frame. If nothing is being communicated, the bus is held in state 1 high voltageso every receiver knows that the communication started when the voltage drops to 0. The receiver keeps a buffer of prrotocol last 5 samples, and uses the majority of the last 5 samples as the input signal.


The FlexRay communication cycle is the fundamental element of the media-access scheme within FlexRay. Every FlexRay node is synchronized to the same clock, and each nodes waits for its turn to write on the profocol. Dynamic slots illustration showing ECUs 2 and 3 broadcasting in their minislots and tutprial no time for the lower-priority minislots.

FlexRay uses unshielded twisted pair cabling to flexraay nodes together. Multi-drop Bus FlexRay is commonly used in a simple multi-drop bus topology that features a single network cable run that connects multiple ECUs together. This means that, if ECU-s is a sender and ECU-r is a receiver, then for every cycles of the sender there will be between and cycles of the receiver.

Target Group This E-Learning module is intended for all those who wish to gain a better understanding of FlexRay communication technology. To accommodate a wide variety of data without slowing down the FlexRay cycle with an excessive number of static slots, the dynamic segment allows occasionally transmitted data.

FlexRay_E: Learning Module FlexRay

If the dynamic frame window ends, then the lower-priority minislots must wait until the next cycle for another opportunity to broadcast. To start a FlexRay cluster, at least 2 protpcol nodes are required to send startup frames. ECU 1 must wait for the next cycle to broadcast.
