Exploration and Optimization of Gated Automotive Networks using Scheduling Analysis 2008-01-0281

Today, gated networks with several buses are becoming standard in automotive E/E-systems but are evolving differently among the various vehicle manufactures, with different topologies, combinations of bus protocols, and speeds. Making the right architecture decisions requires systematic evaluation of the many alternatives during early design stages. However, there are many trade-offs in terms of performance, cost, extensibility, etc.. In this context, scheduling analysis is a powerful tool. It clarifies performance, end-to-end timing, and dynamic behavior. This enables evaluation of networking alternatives, foresight of bottlenecks, and provides guidance in the design process. In the paper, the application of scheduling analysis in automotive network exploration and optimization will be demonstrated. Specific emphasize will be put on end-to-end timing, migration from CAN to FlexRay, black-box integration and early-stage assumptions, extensibility, and trade-offs.
