Use Network Designer to design the network architecture and the data communication of distributed ECU systems. Thanks to its comfortable and intuitive user interface you can efficiently create and process the systems. The networking data form the basis for the subsequent development steps like system simulation, configuration of the ECU software as well as tests of the ECU and system integration.
Network Designer is available for the bus systems CAN, LIN, and FlexRay:
When using several networks even of different bus types in a single vehicle data is transferred between the networks over gateways (signal routing). Network Designer automatically identifies the routed signals based on the communication relations on the networks. These signals are listed in the gateway-routing window.
A central signal pool ensures that signals are defined uniquely and consistently even if used in several vehicle projects and on different networks.
