BroadR-Reach vs. CAN FD – A Comparison

What is BroadR-Reach and how is it used? BroadR-Reach is an ethernet physical layer standard that allows for more cost-effective applications in automobile computing, extending the range of twisted-pair connections without significant sacrifices to speed and connectivity. One of the most prominent uses of BroadR-Reach is in advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS). ADAS tasks are broken ... Read More

Part 1: t Script Roadblock Resolutions: Implementing a Program Flow using Hooks

If you are familiar with t scripts, you know that they are based on “hooks”. Hooks are like interrupts. The runtime engine waits for these hooks, then executes the code that is inside its code block. For example, let’s say you need to respond to a CAN message with an ID of 0x200. The t ... Read More
