Data Logging: Intelligently and Efficiently

Ethernet Live Monitor by Ruetz System Solutions Optimizes Error Analysis in Real Time

Data Logging: Intelligently and Efficiently

Ethernet Live Monitor scans data frames on the bus directly without influence on the network

Ruetz System Solutions – experts in automotive data communications – present the new Ethernet Live Monitor (ELM) for intelligent and efficient error analysis of data transports in automotive networks. „The enormous amount of audio and video data (A/V) challenges data monitoring systems, with the result that loggers do not monitor permanently and thus only analyze audible and visible errors,“ explained Wolfgang Malek, General Manager and Co-Founder of Ruetz System Solutions. „With the Ethernet Live Monitor, we close the gap and do complete, live monitoring of Ethernet traffic.“ Once the Ethernet Live Monitor detects an irregularity it triggers the data logger, initiating the recording of relevant data. It is available in two versions. The Ethernet Live Monitor 1000BASE-T uses an external Ethernet TAP (Terminal Access Point) that timestamps the hardware-related packages. The Ethernet Live Monitor 100BASE-T1 has this TAP already implemented. For configuration and display, test engineers simply require a PC. The Live Monitor can easily be integrated in existing test systems or test vehicles for in-system diagnosis of AVB/TSN.

Live Testing with Intelligent Data Management

The Ethernet Live Monitor detects errors in the live stream by means of the various complex test algorithms. It then triggers the data logger in order to record the relevant data. It automatically identifies irregularities and non-audible and non-visible errors. In addition, it sends an error description to the data logger and stores it with the filed traces for subsequent, effective error analysis. During the following analysis, test engineers already know what issue and time stamp to look for. In addition, data loggers have to provide less storage space. The Ethernet Live Monitor scans data frames directly on the bus without influencing the original network. Thus, Ruetz System Solutions provides intelligent data management: only truly relevant data is recorded and errors are reported to the corresponding log file. It contains more than 40 complex test algorithms for IEEE 802.1AS, 1722/1722a, which can be expanded by costumer-specific test algorithms. In addition, it offers low power input, a robust body, passive cooling, and EMC-proof aluminum housing. Consequently, it perfectly qualifies for vehicle testing. A separate offline analysis tool is also available.

Datenloggen: intelligent und effizient

Ethernet Live Monitor von Ruetz System Solutions optimiert Fehleranalyse in Echtzeit

Datenloggen: intelligent und effizient

Der Ethernet Live Monitor erkennt die Fehler im Livestream und triggert den Datenlogger

Ruetz System Solutions – die Experten für automobile Datenkommunikation – stellt den neuen Ethernet Live Monitor (ELM) zur intelligenten und effizienten Fehleranalyse des Datentransports in automobilen Netzwerken vor. „Die großen Mengen an Audio- und Videodaten (A/V) fordern Datenaufzeichnungssysteme heraus, mit der Konsequenz, dass Logger nicht permanent aufzeichnen und damit nur hörbare oder sichtbare Fehler analysieren“, erläutert Wolfgang Malek, Geschäftsführer und Mitgründer von Ruetz System Solutions. „Mit dem Ethernet Live Monitor schließen wir die Lücke und überwachen den Ethernet-Datenverkehr live und vollständig.“ Entdeckt der Ethernet Live Monitor eine Abweichung, triggert er den Datenlogger, der die relevanten Daten abspeichert. Er steht in zwei Ausführungen bereit: Der Ethernet Live Monitor 1000BASE-T nutzt einen externen Ethernet-TAP (Terminal Access Point), der die Pakete hardwarenah zeitstempelt. Der Ethernet Live Monitor 100BASE-T1 hat diesen TAP bereits integriert. Zur Konfiguration und zur Anzeige der Livestreams und deren Auswertungen benötigt der Testingenieur lediglich einen PC. Der Live Monitor lässt sich für die In-System-Diagnose von AVB/TSN einfach in bestehende Testsysteme oder Versuchsfahrzeuge integrieren.

Live testen mit intelligentem Datenmanagement

Der Ethernet Live Monitor erkennt mithilfe der verschieden komplexen Test-Algorithmen die Fehler im Livestream und triggert den Datenlogger, damit dieser die relevanten Daten speichert. Er erkennt Unregelmäßigkeiten und nicht hör- und sichtbare Fehler automatisch. Zusätzlich sendet er eine Fehlerbeschreibung an den Datenlogger und legt diese bei den gespeicherten Traces für nachträgliche, effektive Fehleranalysen ab. Der Testingenieur weiß bei der nachfolgenden Analyse dann bereits, nach was und zu welchem Zeitpunkt er suchen muss. Zudem müssen Datenlogger weniger Speicherplatz bereitstellen. Der Ethernet Live Monitor tastet Datenframes direkt auf dem Bus ab, ohne das ursprüngliche Netzwerk zu beeinflussen. Damit bietet Ruetz System Solutions intelligentes Datamanagement: Nur das wirklich Notwendige wird aufgezeichnet und Fehler im passenden Logfile gemeldet. Über 40 komplexe Test-Algorithmen für IEEE 802.1AS, 1722/1722a, sind enthalten und lassen sich durch kundenspezifische Test-Algorithmen ergänzen. Zudem bietet er eine geringe Leistungsaufnahme, ein robustes Gehäuse, passive Kühlung und ein Aluminiumgehäuse zur EMV-Schirmung. Damit eignet er sich perfekt für die Fahrzeugerprobung. Ein Offline-Analysetool ist separat erhältlich.

MOST(R) ICA Conference Program Highlights MOST150 Pumping Up the Volume

14th MOST Interconnectivity Conference Asia on November 14, 2013 in Tokyo, Japan

MOST(R) ICA Conference Program Highlights MOST150 Pumping Up the Volume

MOSTCO Exhibit Will Show Simple and Low-cost HD Multimedia Network for Medium- and Small-sized Cars

The MOST(R) Cooperation (MOSTCO) – the standardization organization for the leading automotive multimedia network Media Oriented Systems Transport (MOST) – invites carmakers and suppliers on November 14, 2013 to Tokyo (Japan) for the 14th MOST Interconnectivity Conference Asia (ICA). „We are very pleased to celebrate, together with the Asian automotive industry, the ongoing success of MOST150 being rolled out,“ stated Rainer Klos, MOST Cooperation Administrator. „This reflects the path of success, with fast-growing acceptance of this de-facto automotive network standard by key carmakers worldwide. The number of vehicle models relying on the MOST infotainment backbone already totals over 145 vehicle models on the road today.“ Program highlights will introduce the implementation of MOST150 in the brand new Mercedes-Benz S-class vehicles. Further presentations will inform on solutions and scenarios for the future MOST physical layer, compliance and quality aspects, and network and system architecture such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and IP architecture.

Simple and Low-cost HD Multimedia Network for Medium- and Small-sized Cars

In the exhibition area during ICA 2013, the MOST Cooperation and various members will show the latest MOST solutions and applications. Besides celebrating the ongoing rollout of MOST150, MOSTCO will present a slim and low-cost HD multimedia network solution that especially targets the high-volume medium- and small-sized vehicle market. Thus, the MOST network technology meets the requirements for mass-produced models of the mid-range and small cars sectors. The demo system will show a MOST50 infotainment system that includes a head unit, two interactive displays, an amplifier, and a camera. The electrical physical layer is based on a simple and low-cost unshielded twisted pair (UTP) of copper wires. The implemented remote control feature further simplifies the system and reduces cost, since the whole system needs only one single microcontroller which is located in the head unit. This remote control feature allows the reduction of the number of microcontrollers and amount of memory in small and mid-size systems by obsoleting them in peripheral nodes such as displays, cameras, amplifiers and the like. Instead of having a microcontroller in each node, the other nodes can be controlled remotely by a central microcontroller – for example, the one in the head unit.

„Leaving out the other microcontrollers and memory can drive system cost down significantly,“ stated Rainer Klos, MOSTCO Administrator. „Performing all control centrally in the head unit also simplifies the development process considerably, as only one piece of software needs to be developed. Amplifiers and displays run without a local microcontroller and without local software.“ Besides significantly lowering costs on the side of the remote devices, this type of architecture helps to optimize system partitioning, board space, and even power dissipation in the remote device. Typical examples for peripheral devices are cameras and rear seat entertainment devices, including auxiliary I/Os, displays, etc.
