CAN Newsletter magazine
There is a need to combine CAN networks with higher performing network technologies. Ethernet is the favorite candidate.
Janosch Fauster from TTControl discusses in his article the different Ethernet-based variants as options to accompany the CAN networks in mobile machines. His favorite solution is an Ethernet based on a 100Base-T1 physical layer and TSN (time-sensitive network) extension on the data link layer. On the application layer he sees several options.
Therefore the author thinks that a 100Base-TX/TSN-Ethernet switch should provide also multiple CAN channels. Such a device could be used as central point in the machine. It should provide a firewall at those channels having connection to the “outside” world, for example for diagnostics, fleet management, etc.
