SLSC KADRO-BSB-16

CAN/LIN/Ethernet Bus Switch Module

The KADRO-BSB-16 (Bus Switch Board) provides fault insertion on all common interfaces used in a vehicle, it also provides enable or bypass for the bus signals to each ECU. The module can be used for confgure bus nodes such as 4 x 4, 2 x 8 or 1 x 16 networks.

The KADRO-BSB-16 (Bus Switch Board) provides fault insertion on all common interfaces used in a vehicle, both serial interfaces such as Ethernet, RS-232, RS-485, Automotive Ethernet etc. and bus interfaces such as CAN, LIN and Flexray

Four connectors are available at the front (Connector 1-4) to be connected to the ECU’s, the connectors may be used in other configurations pending the interfaces used in the test setup.

KADRO-BSB-16 provides fault insertion for 8 serial (2-pair) communication channels (Channel C1-C8) and adapters (options) for Automotive Ethernet converter, Automotive Ethernet HUB and LIN sensor emulator.

For the bus interfaces the BSB supports up to four channels each channel distributed to four DUT outputs.

the KADRO-BSB-16 provides four buses, each to be connected to four ECU interfaces, those busses can be linked by software control providing other configurations such as two busses to 8 ECU interfaces or 1 bus to 16 ECU interfaces. Each bus can be terminated (120 ohm) at the end by software.
