Detailed Technical Comparison of Automotive Serial Buses
White Paper Overview
Point-to-point automotive networks deployed in the 1980's were replaced by bus-based networks in the 1990's, with CAN bus emerging as the industry standard.
Since then, the complexity of vehicle electronic systems has grown exponentially to include hundreds of sensors and controllers and ever-faster serial communications. New standards, such as BroadR-Reach Automotive Ethernet, are designed to address those needs.
This white paper from Pico Technology compares the technical details and performance characteristics of six key automotive serial buses every engineer should understand.
