World’s First FlexRay System For High-Speed Car Networking Apps

Eindhoven, The Netherlands: Royal Philips Electronics delivered the world's first FlexRay system solution, which includes both the TJA1080 transceiver and SJA2510, a powerful ARM 9 microcontroller with an embedded and fully integrated FlexRay version 2.1 communication controller.

With FlexRay as the networking bus, car makers can differentiate through performance and features, giving consumers the latest safety applications, says Philips. Originally intended as the communication protocol for x-by-wire applications, FlexRay is entering the market early with first implementations in high-end European vehicles in 2006 for advanced vehicle chassis applications. Car manufacturers have indicated they see FlexRay becoming the backbone of in-vehicle networking systems that will eventually supersede CAN systems.
