Product Information

Description

The FlexCard PXIe3 combines a high-performance platform for real-time capable remaining bus simulations or gateways and up to 30 channel* measuring interface for automotive bus systems in one device. This powerful combination provides manifold solutions for:

  • gateways between different automotive bus systems

  • interfacing of automotive bus systems

  • remaining bus simulation

  • signal manipulation

  • data logging

  • rapid prototyping

The FlexCard PXIe3 supports current and upcoming bus systems and has numerous variable interfaces, thus covering most of the application fields where bus interfaces are required. This device is appreciated by automotive developers since it facilitates the implementation and testing of even very tricky gateway applications and prototyping functionalities. Together with the comprehensive FlexConfig software family, the developers are enabled to set up and control their bus systems and ECU environment in a smart way.

*The number of channels depends on the used bus systems

Advantages
  • 5x pluggable transceiver modules (2-6 channels per module depending on the bus system)

  • Pluggable transceiver modules available for CAN-HS, CAN-FD, FlexRay, 100BASE-TX, LIN, SENT, 100BASE-T1, 1000BASE-T1

  • Available in PCIe and PXIe form factor

  • Execution of real time gateways/ remaining bus simulations and parallel streaming of all communication channels to the PCIe host system

  • Synchronous timestamp generation for most of the bus interfaces (resolution up to 1 us)

2 Trigger inputs or -outputs

3 different operating modes:
- Pure FlexCard mode. Sending/receiving of bus data at the PCIe host system via the Windows driver
- Pure FlexDevice mode. Execution of real time remaining bus simulations and gateways
- Mixed mode. Execution of real time remaining bus simulations on the integrated ARM Cortex-A9 CPU and receiving of all bus data at the PCIe host system (PC)

Gateway and/or remaining bus simulations executed on the integrated ARM Cortex-A9 CPU without influencing the PCIe host system (PC)

Streaming of the bus data to the PCIe host system without influencing the gateways/remaining bus simulations executed on the ARM Cortex-A9 CPU

*several bus combinations are possible, please contact us regarding your desired bus configuration.
