Automotive Ethernet Tools

Hit the ground running with Intrepid’s full line of Automotive Ethernet tools!

Automotive Ethernet (AE) represents the latest challenge to the status quo in automotive networking. Many OEMs are now moving forward with this exciting new technology, which promises high performance at low cost, especially for infotainment applications.

Capturing Automotive Ethernet Frames
Automotive Ethernet traffic cannot be monitored using the same techniques employed for buses like CAN. Ethernet networks use star topology, so there is no single point to monitor an entire network. The sophisticated technology employed also means bit values cannot be interpreted directly from voltage levels. Finally, Ethernet hardware silently discards erroneous frames, making diagnosing problem conditions difficult. Intrepid’s tools are designed to address all of these issues conveniently and efficiently.

Automotive Ethernet Connector
RAD-Star & RAD-Galaxy Active Taps

RAD-Galaxy

Intrepid’s RAD-Galaxy is a multi-purpose Ethernet multi active-tap, media converter and ISO CAN FD tool for Automotive Ethernet applications. Using the RAD-Galaxy, you can monitor both sides of up to 6 BroadR-Reach® (100BASE-T1 compatible) links in active tap mode, or connect your laptop to up to 12 nodes in media converter mode.  In addition to supporting Automotive Ethernet, the RAD-Galaxy supports 8 ISO CAN FD networks, 1 LIN channel and a Diagnostics over IP (DoIP) channel.

Key Features:
• Silently monitor the full-duplex connection on 6 links between BroadR-Reach® /  100BASE-T1 devices, or communicate with 12 nodes as a media converter
• Capture all Ethernet error frames normally discarded by standard Ethernet hardware
• Timestamp all Ethernet and CAN FD traffic at sub-microsecond resolution for testing gateways
• Transmit host Ethernet frames to either connected device for in-system ECU flashing or diagnostics
• Media converter timestamps both CAN FD and Ethernet simultaneously
• Master/slave auto-configuration plus manual selection option
• Precision Time Protocol (PTP) support
• Audio Video Bridging (AVB) support• 8x ISO CAN FD channels
• 2x SW or LSFT CAN
• Diagnostics over IP (DoIP) activation
• Full-sized SD card for standalone logging
• 10 ns timestamp accuracy across all networks
• Automotive power supply (5 – 40V)
• Temperature Range of -40C to +85C
• 1320 ns total latency

 

RAD-Star 2

RAD-Star 2

Intrepid’s RAD-Star 2 is a multi-purpose, dual Ethernet gateway for Automotive Ethernet applications.  Using the RAD-Star 2, you can monitor both sides of a BroadR-Reach® (100BASE-T1 compatible) connection or connect your laptop to 2 nodes in media converter mode. As a gateway to standard 8-wire Gigabit Ethernet, RAD-Star 2 makes any existing standard Ethernet device, laptop, or data logger compatible with BroadR-Reach® (100BASE-T1 compatible).

Applications:
• Silently monitor the full-duplex connection between a pair of BroadR-Reach® /  100BASE-T1 devices
• Capture all Ethernet error frames normally discarded by standard Ethernet hardware
• Timestamp all Ethernet and CAN FD traffic at sub-microsecond resolution for testing gateways
• Transmit host Ethernet frames to either connected device for in-system ECU flashing or diagnostics
• Media converter timestamps both CAN FD and Ethernet simultaneously
• Communicate over Ethernet or USB
• Frame preemption support
• Master/slave auto-configuration plus manual selection option
• Precision Time Protocol (PTP) support
• Audio Video Bridging (AVB) support
• Flexible FPGA-based design allows updated Ethernet MAC implementations to meet future Ethernet TSN standards
• Standalone mode for creating your own Ethernet/CAN FD gateways using a real time scripting language

RAD-Moon Media Converter

RAD-Moon

The inexpensive, pocket-sized RAD-Moon easily interfaces conventional Ethernet with BroadR-Reach® (100BASE-T1 compatible). Powered by USB, the RAD-Moon allows you to communicate directly between a PC and an Automotive Ethernet ECU.

Key Features:
• One BroadR-Reach® Automotive Ethernet PHY (BCM89810) connected directly to one 4-wire 100BASE-TX standard Ethernet PHY
• 100BASE-T1 compatible
• Powered via USB
• Master/slave auto-configuration
• Activity and link LEDs for both PHYs
• Molex Mini 50 connector for BroadR-Reach® PHY
• RJ-45 connector for 10/100 Mb PHY
• Compact for portability
• Rugged extruded aluminum enclosure

Vehicle Spy Now Supports Automotive Ethernet

Intrepid’s Vehicle Spy 3 software now analyzes and saves Automotive Ethernet data. You can view CAN, LIN, Automotive Ethernet and video data on one screen, time-aligned with an accuracy of 10 ns. Examine live data and load data logger captures to see when a test operator pressed a trigger button, synchronized with video frame captures and Automotive Ethernet frames.
