TTTech presented this future-proof solution for vehicle testing and validation of automotive networks at the Automotive Testing Expo in Stuttgart, Germany. The Power Family fulfills all requirements for logging modern networking architectures in vehicles. The modular concept consisting of several product extensions makes it possible to meet high demands of fleet tests as well as of test runs.
With increasing data volume and the centralization of ECUs, autonomous driving and ADAS have a huge impact on vehicle networking architectures. As a result, they also require a new generation of testing equipment. “Thanks to TTTech’s previous involvement in autonomous driving projects, the development of platform ECUs and our experience in the development of data logging tools, we have identified the specific needs of our customers”, says Marc Lang, Director Sales & Marketing Automotive at TTTech. “For example, the direct logging of debugging data can be perfectly addressed with the Power Family.”
The Power Family’s centerpiece is the data logger PM-200, a logging powerhouse that is able to log bus systems such as CAN, CAN-FD, FlexRay, LIN, MOST and Automotive Ethernet at a data speed of up to 120 MB/s with a time stamp resolution of 1 µs. SSD removable media allow for quick evaluation and distribution of the data. Flexibility, programmability and support of debugging protocols make it possible to meet high demands of functionality.
The Power Family also includes the PC-3, a universal, intelligent gateway tool that provides functions for data exchange between various bus systems as well as for real-time data manipulation. The PT-15B is a BroadR-Reach Ethernet Extension, whose twelve 100b-T1 interfaces enable logging of up to 6 Automotive Ethernet point-to-point connections which are looped through the PT-15B. The PT-17B, BroadR-Reach to Ethernet Converter and storage modules complete the Power Family’s initial setup. The concept of modular and cascadable taps makes this logging solution future-proof as new taps will constantly expand the possibilities of the Power Family.
