FlexCard PMC II

FlexCard PMC II

The FlexCard PMC II is a bus interface device for automotive bus systems in PMC design. It offers with its 4 FlexTiny II slots (Physical Layer) configuration options for several bus systems.

 

 

Benefits

  • 4 exchangeable FlexTiny II slots, each with two Physical Layers 
  • FlexTiny II modules available for CAN, FlexRay, Ethernet and BroadR-Reach
  • Synchronous time stamp generation for all bus systems (resolution 1 us)
  • PMC-Adapter available for: PCI, PCIe, PXI
  • Driver available for: Windows, Linux, LabVIEW
  • Numerous triggering capabilities
  • Switchable on-board bus termination
  • Analysis software included

Ethernet (only for Windows available)

  • Synchronous hardware timestamps for all bus interfaces
    (CAN, FlexRay, Ethernet)
  • Resolution of the timestamp 1 us (32-bit)
  • FlexCard PMC II with Ethernet will be detected as standard
    Ethernet interface
  • Access to the Ethernet packets by NDIS driver (raw sockets possible)
  • Special WinPcap version allows access to the hardwaretimestamps
    of the Ethernet packets
  • Access to the CAN and FlexRay packets by standard FlexCard API
  • 100 Mbit Ethernet Physical Layer and BroadR-Reach Physical Layer
    available soon

FlexRay

  • Asynchronous monitoring mode allows listening without FlexRay synchronicity
  • Combined asynchronous and synchronous monitoring mode (the procedure of a bus start-up can be monitored and registered exactly)
  • Configurable Tx-acknowledges
  • Network synchronicity will be reported immediately (with timestamp)
  • Chronological correlation of bus messages with one timestamp base
  • Firmware update directly at the user PC possible
  • Extensive filter configuration available
  • Significant bus error messages
  • Triggering on the precise slot, cycle, channel and on various error states
  • Start-up communication controller

CAN

  • Silent mode useable for listening without bus interference
  • Transmit FIFO up to 512 messages
  • Configurable Tx-acknowledges
  • Significant bus error messages

PC interfaces

  • Native mezzanine PC interface (PMC)
  • PCI Adapter available
  • PCIe Adapter available
  • PXI Adapter available

Drivers

  • Uniform FlexCard API
