FlexRay is an automotive network communications protocol developed by the FlexRay Consortium to govern on-board automotive computing. The bus operates on a time cycle, divided into two parts: The static segment is preallocated into slices for baslcs communication types, providing stronger determinism than its predecessor CAN.

FlexRay – Wikipedia

The dynamic segment operates more like CANwith nodes taking control of the bus as available, allowing event-triggered behavior. By Septemberthere were 28 premium flexrayy members and more than 60 associate members. At the end ofthe consortium disbanded. The first series production vehicle with FlexRay was at the end of in the BMW X5 E70[3] enabling a new and fast adaptive damping protockl. Each ECU has an independent clock. The clock drift must be not more than 0.

This means that, if ECU-s is a sender and ECU-r is a receiver, then for every cycles of the sender there will be between and cycles flexrxy the receiver. The clocks are resynchronized frequently enough to assure that this causes no problems.

The clock is sent in the static segment. At each time, only one ECU writes to the bus. Each bit to be sent is held on the bus for 8 sample clock cycles. The receiver keeps a buffer of the last 5 samples, and uses the majority of the last 5 samples as the input signal. Single-cycle transmission errors may affect results near the boundary of the bits, but will not affect cycles in the middle of the 8-cycle region. The value of the bit is sampled in the middle of the 8-bit region.


The errors are moved to the extreme cycles, and the clock is synchronized frequently enough for the drift to be small. Drift is smaller than 1 cycle per cycles, and during transmission the clock is synchronized more than once every cycles.

All the communication is sent in the form of frames.

If nothing is being communicated, the bus is held in state 1 high pdotocolso every receiver knows that the communication started when the voltage drops to 0. Note that 8-cycle per bit has nothing to do flexday bytes.

Each byte takes 80 cycles to transfer. Clocks are resynchronized when the voted signal changes from 1 to 0, if the receiver was in either idle state or expecting BSS1. As synchronization is done on the voted signal, small transmission errors during synchronization that affect the boundary bits may pgotocol the synchronization no more than 1 cycle. As there are at most 88 cycles between synchronization BSS1, 8 bits of the last byte, FES and TES – 11 bits of 8 cycles eachand the clock drift is no larger than 1 per cycles, the drift may skew the clock no more than 1 cycle.

Small transmission errors during the receiving may affect only the boundary bits. So in the worst case the two middle bits are correct, and thus the sampled value is correct.


Here’s an example of a particularly bad case – error during synchronization, a lost cycle due to clock drift and error in transmission. The green cells are sampling points.

Logic analyzers and bus analyzers are tools which collect, analyze, decode, store signals so people can view the high-speed waveforms at their leisure. The bus has certain disadvantages like lower operating voltage levels and asymmetry of the edges, which leads to problems in extending the network length. Ethernet may flexday FlexRay for bandwidth intensive, non-safety critical applications.
