After introducing 10BASE-T1S and CAN XL in a previous post we will take a deeper look how both protocols could be used in a system and what is necessary to connect CAN XL and 10BASE-T1S to a IVN backbone. Based on a demonstration system prepared by Renesas running a gateway application for CAN XL and 10BASE-T1S we could break down the tasks performed in a gateway and measure the processing time for each of it. Knowing that gateways are complex components already in today’s systems optimization proposals are made, discussed and the effect on processing time are measured and visualized.
In this article, we will introduce a new board feature of the Smart Configurator tool. This feature will assist you in selecting software components (i.e., middleware and drivers) that will work nicely with your Renesas board.
