Intrepid Becomes an AUTOSAR Development Partner
(July17, 2014)

Madison Heights, Michigan, USA: 
Intrepid Control Systems, Inc. is pleased to announce it has become an Automotive Open Systems Architecture (AUTOSAR) Development Partner.  Other members of AUTOSAR include General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, BMW, Volkswagen, Ford, GM, Chrysler, PSA, Toyota, Bosch, Siemens and Continental among many others.
Upon Intrepid’s acceptance as an AUTOSAR partner, Colt Correa, Vice President of Business Development, said," Joining with AUTOSAR is an exciting step for Intrepid as we move our tools into the realm of automotive Ethernet.  Our goal with this new partnership is to offer AUTOSAR reference designs in the form of evaluation boards and open source AUTOSAR stacks advancing both AUTOSAR and automotive Ethernet in the industry.  Whether our customers are in the USA, Asia, Europe or beyond, this partnership will provide even more value to our customers and our partners in the Automotive Engineering Tools Alliance."


AUTOSAR’s purpose is the establishment of an open standard for automotive electronics architecture that will serve as a basic infrastructure for the management of functions within applications embedded in vehicles.  The aim is to achieve modularity, scalability, transferability, and re-usability.

 

AUTOSAR (Automotive Open System Architecture)
AUTOSAR (http://www.autosar.org/) is a network of major automobile manufacturers, suppliers software houses, tool manufacturers and semiconductor companies with the goal of establishing a common software infrastructure standard for vehicle electronics. Standard functional interfaces are intended to guarantee that in-vehicle software is hardware independent. Basic software modules are standardized, such that interoperability, reuse and exchangeability are supported. Suppliers - including software houses - can offer their products to a broader market and in turn an integrator can use software of multiple suppliers. This implies a more competitive environment and thus cost reductions. In addition, through unbundling software from hardware a more efficient usage of hardware resources is possible.

 

Intrepid Control Systems, Inc.
Intrepid Control Systems (ICS, http://www.intrepidcs.com) celebrates its 20th year as a manufacturer of vehicle network tools.  ICS provides vehicle network hardware and software to engineers involved in vehicle electronics, including the neoVI and ValueCAN series.  Intrepid supports all the latest networks and protocols, including CAN, CAN FD, BroadR-Reach®, Automotive Ethernet, MOST, FlexRay, LIN, J1939, ISO 14229 and GMLAN. Intrepid is a founding member of the Automotive Engineering Tool Alliance (http://www.aeta-rice.com) and provides a comprehensive tool chain with RA Consulting (http://www.rac.de), CarMedialab (http://www.carmedialab.de), and emotive (http://www.emotive.de) for state-of-the-art automotive electronics development .

Announcing Intrepid Korea!
(September 23, 2013)

Intrepid Control Systems continues to expand its presence with the opening of a new office in Seoul, South Korea. Intrepid Control Systems Korea will provide direct customer support, training, sales and customized product development. In response to rapid growth in the region and in order to fully support customers such as GM Korea and Hyundai, the creation of a local office in Korea was essential.

The ICS Korea office is now open and will be managed by Jong Yoo (Jay) Chung. Mr. Chung previously was a software developer focused on remote vehicle data logging and Android development. Mr. Chung's efforts resulted in the successful launch of the Wireless neoVI website and the latest Android-based vehicle network adaptors, neoVI PLASMA and neoVI ION. Managing the Korea office is a significant promotion that will put developer-level power and a native Korean in direct contact with Intrepid's customers.

In addition, Mr. Chung has hired Mr. Kyung-il Park, formerly ICS Sales Engineer of CANsystem, to provide a familiar face to our existing customers. Mr. Park will assume the role of Senior Sales Engineer. CANsystem will remain a distributor of Intrepid's products, and will work closely with ICS Korea.

ICS Korea shall place customer satisfaction as our foremost priority and will strive to provide products that will allow ICS Korea to grow with our customers.

Learn the Future-Today! Introducing FlexRay EVB
(November 18, 2009)

 

Why Is FlexRay Relevant to You? FlexRay is the future replacement for CAN in many vehicle network architectures. This means that FlexRay knowledge will soon be required for your occupation.  The problem is that the learning curve of FlexRay is long. This means that to be ready, you should begin learning now. An understanding of FlexRay will both prepare you for your future, as well as give you more marketable skills.

 

The Major Problem ... So you decided you wanted a head start on FlexRay. The problem now is that to setup a basic FlexRay experimentation system, you need to invest tens of thousands of dollars. For those of us without a production program or research budget, it's going to be impossible to get anywhere. You're basically stuck reading the FlexRay specification. We can say from our own experience that this is as fun as getting a root canal at the dentist's office.

 

The Solution ... Intrepid Control Systems, Inc. has solved this problem (not the root canal problem, but FlexRay). Intrepid introduces the lowest cost FlexRay system on the market by creating a unique design that allows a full FlexRay network and monitoring tool on one low cost board ($750). It is available now from Intrepid's online store.

 

Benefits

  • Experiment with FlexRay technology at a low cost.
  • Rest Bus simulation of FlexRay networks.
  • Interact with the Bosch ERAY FlexRay Core using Windows Development tools, such as Microsoft Visual Studio.
  • Use as a SPI peripheral to other microcontroller development boards.
  • Develop FlexRay / Handler ECU code on the PC.
  • Reconfigure FlexRay networks without using device programmers.

Please visit the FlexRay EVB website for more detailed information.

The MBTime Microchip bit timing page is located on our support site.

 


Free FIBEX Viewing Tool
(May 14, 2008)

 

FIBEX is a ASAM standard for Vehicle Network information. FIBEX purpose is a standard file format to allow tools to share vehicle network definitions electronically. FIBEX is the defacto industry standard way to share FlexRay cluster definitions. In the past OEMs usually used text based descriptions in Word documents or proprietary file formats to store this data. These formats were difficult or impossible to share across tools. Intrepid has created this tool for customers working with FIBEX files who want to learn more about the format. The tool allows you to view the files and search the FIBEX and FlexRay specification. Intrepid also supports loading FIBEX files in the Vehicle Spy application software for FlexRay applications.

The Tiny Fibex viewer page is located on our support site.



ETAS Partnership
(Aug 30, 2007)

 

Intrepid Control Systems is happy to announce that we have become an official ETAS GmbH partner through the ETAS partner program. Intrepid has worked closely with ETAS on numerous customer projects as well as new product development. The first product to be released as a result of this working relationship is the up and coming ES581. We are happy to extend this relationship through the ETAS partner program. We invite you to the ETAS booth at the Novi Testing Expo (site) where we will demonstrate how ETAS Products and Intrepid Control Systems products can mutually enhance each other and bring more value to our customers.



Free Tool - ICS' Tiny ODX Viewer
(Aug 24, 2007)

 

Intrepid has created this tool for customers working with ODX files who want to learn more about the format. The tool allows you to view the files and search the ODX specification. Intrepid also supports loading ODX files in the Vehicle Spy application software The ODX standard is a very large and "flexible" standard. This means that OEMs tend to implement ODX in different ways. While an OEM's implementation will vary from another's, ODX is still useful because much of the file format does remain the same. This allows an ODX parser to load and parse these different OEM formats with minimal software changes. Tiny ODX Viewer Page
