JSAE Recommended Practice - Evaluating Method of the Automotive Distributed Control Multiplex Systems
While basic automobile performance is improving along with the growth of higher value-added features, rapidly increasing use of electrical and electronics systems with complex wire harnesses is becoming a problem. This is bringing the automotive distributed control multiplex system to commercial reality. At present, standardization of protocols is under deliberation by SAE and ISO, and several protocols are being considered as candidates. To select a multiplex LSI having an optional protocol, we have established a method to evaluate automotive distributed control multiplex system from the standpoint of users. The method will permit comparison of various multiplex LSIs including physical layers and their protocols' performance/reliability, while helping clarify their features and areas of applications. It is our hope that through this activity of ours, we will be able to make some contribution to global standardization in the field.
