Test of ECUs with LIN 2.0 Interface

The LIN bus was standardized in the late 1990s, and has been in widespread use in the automotive industry since. The reason for its introduction was the necessity to increase the communication capability that pushed the envelope of CAN networks because of high numbers of ECUs and data volume in vehicles. From an economic point of view the challenge was to develop a cheaper alternative to the relatively complex CAN interface. A LIN network always connects a limited number of ECUs that build a closed functional unit. The coupling of single LIN subsystems to the vehicle’s central CAN network is done by a control unit with gateway function. The communication on the LIN bus is monitored by a Master bus device. The remaining ECUs work in Slave Mode.

Sx-STG from IPETRONIK – high-speed, eight-channel, multi-input analog measurement module with sensor excitation

Sx-STG from IPETRONIK – high-speed, eight-channel, multi-input analog measurement module with sensor excitation
IPETRONIK has announced the Sx-STG, a fast, eight-channel multi-input analog measurement module that offers sensor excitation. This compact module was designed for mobile measurement applications that face stringent requirements for reliability, flexibility and high sample rates. It supports the user’s choice of one of three different signals per measurement input: voltage, integrated circuit piezoelectric (ICP) sensors, and Strain Gauge (STG) sensors for measurements on 1/4, 1/2 and full bridge circuits. The eight analog inputs are galvanically isolated, and they cover measurement ranges with twelve unipolar and twelve bipolar voltages from ±0.01 V to ±50 V. They achieve a resolution of 16 bits and can withstand voltages of up to ±100 V. Each input has its own dual sensor excitation, which can be set individually up to a maximum of ±15 V with up to ±45 mA. An 8th-order, 4,800-Hz Butterworth filter that can be turned on and off has been integrated as the hardware filter.
