As automobile development has continued apace, some new highly complex and critical subsystems have emerged. Simple networks such as CAN Bus and LIN Bus have long handled communications among controllers and electromechanical automotive systems, but an enhanced communication bus eventually became necessary to handle higher-bandwidth connections. Accordingly, a consortium developed standards for what came to […]
The Local Interconnect Network (LIN) Bus was created to augment CAN Bus, at first in automotive applications and later for industrial use. CAN Bus was developed by Bosch to serialize communication among automotive electrical systems. It is a good candidate where high-bandwidth and advanced error-handling is needed as in automotive engines, where transmission and braking […]
