Atmel introduces FlexRay evaluation environment

Atmel has introduced an AVR 32-bit FlexRay evaluation environment and demonstrated FlexRay technology with a mockup car implementing in-vehicle networking with X-by-wire drive, steer and brake functions.

The evaluation environment is based on a 32-bit microcontroller with Atmel's AVR32 proprietary architecture and FlexRay IP licensed from Robert Bosch GmbH. The environment includes a hardware LIN IP, a dual CAN IP, an Ethernet MAC and a set of general-purpose peripherals, as well as an AVR32 development tool set, a FlexRay stack, a FlexRay configuration tool and a network analyzer. Daughter boards are available to implement a complete network including gateway function or brushless dc motor control.
