Architecture and Operation of the HIP7010 J1850 Byte-Level Interface Circuit

1995-02-01
950035
As a cost effective solution to making microcontroller based systems “J1850[1] aware”, a peripheral device (the HIP7010) was developed to extend the capabilities of standard microcontrollers. From the perspective of the Host, the peripheral device handles J1850 messages as a series of bytes (similar in concept to a universal asynchronous receiver/transmitter [UART]). The architecture of the HIP7010 is discussed. The design of the J1850 interface, state machine, status/control blocks, cyclical redundancy check (CRC) hardware, host interface, and fail-safe features are detailed. Illustrations are provided of: Host/HIP7010 interfacing; message transmission and reception; error handling; and In-Frame Response (IFR) generation.

42LE Electronic Four-Speed Automatic Transaxle

1993-03-01

A new electronically controlled transaxle has been put into production for Chrysler's family of LH cars. Among the attributes of this new transaxle are its ability to handle engines of high torque and high power coupled with high-speed shifts. Engine torque management is used in specific operating regimes. A feature of the transaxle is electronic modulation of the converter clutch. A number of logic features have been combined with hardware to provide good performance and shift quality over a wide operating range. An output transfer chain and a hypoid gear set are used to provide torque to the front wheels in a longitudinal power train orientation. Obtaining acceptable endurance life of the hypoid gears within an aluminum housing presented a significant challenge. New approaches were required to provide a chain-sprocket system with acceptable noise characteristics.

Chrysler Collision Detection (C2D™) Bus Interface, Integrated Circuit User Manual

1988-02-01
880586
Some of Chrysler's 1988 model year vehicles contain a serial bus. This paper discusses its implementation and general usage. It describes a type of bus that was designed for smart modules to be able to cost effectively transfer data within an automotive environment. This paper is a sixty plus page users manual describing how to use both the Chrysler's C2D* bus and the C2D chip. This manual contains descriptions of the vehicle system, the information usage, the message formats, the hardware interfacing requirements, the bus speed, and the C2D chip functions. The SAE Multiplex Subcommittee is currently attempting to standardize this type of bus via SAE J1850. However, until this happens, Chrysler will continue to develop, improve, and use this bus, since it exists now! Even though this bus was designed for automotive usage, it has many other possible industry applications, especially within noisy environments. Thus, after understanding the bus, other industries may become interested.

Digital Recording of Vehicle Crash Data

1981-06-01

This paper discusses the development and implementation of a 16 channel data acquisition system for high “G” impact testing which includes a self-contained, on-board data acquisition unit, a programmer-exerciser and debriefing subsystems. The microprocessor controlled, on-board unit contains all signal conditioning, A/D conversion hardware and logic to store 4K 12 bit samples of data per channel. This unit will debrief into an oscilloscope, a desk-top computer or a large disk-based minicomputer system. Advantages over previous systems include the elimination of costly hardware (such as umbilical cables and recorders), and a reduction in pre-test preparation and data processing time.
