LONDON — TTTech Automotive, the subsidiary of TTTech that specializes in automotive networking solutions, is releasing an updated version of TTXConnexion.

This provides a gateway between FlexRay and CAN networks, as well as functions for data manipulation, data analysis and logging, for use in test laboratories and vehicle trials.

The gateway function of TTXConnexion makes it possible to combine CAN and FlexRay networks, speeding up system integration and vehicle testing. TTXConnexion translates between the various stages of development, resulting in maximum flexibility in the development, integration and test phases.

This version of TTXConnexion provides configurable, integrated termination resistors for all FlexRay and CAN buses that are connected to the device. The resistors can be switched on and off using buttons on the device, making it unnecessary to use external termination resistors on the bus.

The size of the tool make TTXConnexion suitable for system integration into FlexRay and CAN networks, from the prototype phase to serial production. Also, the connectors on the tool have been reengineered so that the area necessary for cabling has been reduced.

The triggers that the user has configured for the tool are displayed on the tool itself, facilitating configuration of the desired behavior. Enhanced data manipulation functions make it possible to carry out manipulations with the desired repetition. To keep current consumption low, particularly in vehicles that are not running, TTXConnexion allows the user to put the device into a state in which current consumption is lowered.

The activation of the so-called 'sleep state', as well as wakeup conditions, are configurable and can be given delay times.
