Automotive vehicles are not only fast moving, but also have various systems comprising a variety of advanced technologies. Increasing complexities of these systems need much more sophisticated components and interactions.
Amongst the various standards that target the automotive IP section, CAN holds a unique place. CAN (controller area network) is a communication protocol which uses a single, shared serial bus and supports distributed real time multiplexing for use within a variety of road/space applications.
Various nodes that connect on the bus can have different oscillator frequencies but all coordinate in a manner such that a network-wide time quantum and, eventually, bit time is achieved.
Designing of such a system is sophisticated,
