There is a noticeable trend towards extending the FlexRay
bus from chassis control and body gateway applications to the powertrain domain, including engine and transmission control," says Frank Schwertlein, Infineon vice president and general manager, Standard Power, Automotive Div.
Consortium advocates the use of its standards for "x-by-wire" systems in next-generation advanced onboard networks in which mechanical controls are replaced by electronic controls.
The TJA1083 is a FlexRay
"clamp 15" node transceiver in a compact TSSOP14 package, while the TJA1085 and TJA1086 are both FlexRay
active star couplers.
This is the first top column module in the world to use FlexRay
With transmission rates up to 10Mb/s, FlexRay
provides 20 times the speed of the unshielded twisted copper cable used in cars today.

Infineon Technologies AG is expanding its portfolio of LIN and CAN automotive communications ICs with its first FlexRay
Rather than the CAN communications that we used today, we need something like FlexRay
to allow high-speed communications between the components.
In addition, Atmel will demonstrate its new technology today at the FlexRay
day conference held in Stuttgart, Germany with a mockup car implementing advanced in-vehicle networking with X-by-wire drive, steer and brake functions.
Vector is the leading manufacturer of software tools and software components for networking of electronic systems based on CAN, LIN, FlexRay
, Ethernet, WLAN and MOST as well as multiple CAN based protocols.
NXP Semiconductors the world s largest supplier of in-vehicle networking semiconductors today announced availability of the TJA1083, TJA1085 and TJA1086 FlexRay
