Due to the increasing complexity of driver assistance systems and the growing number of infotainment appli-cations, the data traffic between ECUs in the most recent vehicle models has grown significantly. Consequently, be-sides the various classic bus systems, modern vehicle architectures are based on Automotive Ethernet accord-ing to BroadR-Reach / IEEE 802.3 100(0)Base-T1, which can keep up with the growing bandwidth demand.
Up to this point, high amounts of data loggers have been necessary for the logging of internal vehicle communica-tion data. The high performance BLUEPIRAT Rapid multi-bus data log-ger for vehicle development and test-ing solves this problem. The Rapid en-ables analysis of vehicle architectures based on Automotive Ethernet thanks to the recording of all data traffic in real time with a uniform, synchronous time base. In addition, it also allows storing of specific datasets by means of manu-ally or automatically configured trig-gers and filters.
With just a single device, data traffic can be recorded of up to 10 Automo-tive Ethernet links, conventional bus architectures, standard Ethernet, USB and serial interfaces as well as digital and analog inputs. With up to 3 TB in-ternal memory and high logging per-formance, the BLUEPIRAT Rapid data logger can easily manage the large data quantities typical for Automotive Ethernet. The easily accessible front ports allow connection of optional ac-cessories such as network cameras, GPS and cellular modules, and addi-tional recording on external USB mass storage devices.
BLUEPIRAT Rapid data loggers fulfill the increased requirements in terms of temperature range and resistance to shock and vibrations for use in the car when driving. The compact all-metal enclosure with no fan or rotating data storage device, as well as the lack of protruding parts, make the Rapid maintenance-free and extremely ro-bust in daily operation.
