TJA Terminal Jog Auxiliary 1080 FlexRay Transceiver and Fail-Safe System Basis Chips Deliver High-Speed Fault-Tolerant Communications
EINDHOVEN, The Netherlands -- NXP NXP Next Experience (formerly Philips Semiconductors) , formerly Philips Semiconductors, today announced the availability of the world's first FlexRay transceiver, the TJA1080, now in volume production. The TJA1080, together with NXP Fail-Safe System Basis Chips, is now on the road in the new BMW X A small five-cylinder radial engine for sport and training aircraft. Although this engine, the BMW X, proved successful at several large-scale events in 1930, including that year's round-Europe flight, only a few were built. A successor model, the BMW Xa, was introduced in 1931. 5, the first series production car with a FlexRay system.
With the high-speed FlexRay network communications system In telecommunication, a communications system is a collection of individual communications networks, transmission systems, relay stations, tributary stations, and data terminal equipment (DTE) usually capable of interconnection and interoperation to form an integrated whole. , car makers can introduce advanced features that are transforming safety and comfort in the car. The BMW X5 is the first sports activity vehicle (SAV SAV Sport Activity Vehicle

The FlexRay system enables AdaptiveDrive to process and transmit very large amounts of data on changing driving and road conditions at extremely high speeds for dynamic control of the anti-roll bars and dampers.
"Vehicle safety is significantly enhanced with the TJA1080, as active safety systems are able to leverage the high-speed interaction between electronic control units in a FlexRay network," said Toni Versluijs, business development manager, NXP. "With the TJA1080 now on the road with the BMW X5, both drivers and passengers can enjoy the enhanced performance and safety features enabled by FlexRay."
Addressing car manufacturers' need for faster, fault-tolerant communication and flexible and scalable electronic networks, the TJA1080 transceiver supports a wide range of microcontrollers, including the NXP SJA SJA St. John Ambulance

SJA synthetic jet actuator 25xx family, which provides an integrated solution for FlexRay applications. NXP is currently the only semiconductor supplier that can offer a complete system solution for FlexRay applications, consisting of microcontrollers and transceivers.
The TJA1080 is flexible and can be configured as a node transceiver or as an active star transceiver with only one device. The result is faster and simplified development of complete FlexRay networks with robust communication due to excellent EMC (1) (EMC Corporation, Hopkinton, MA, www.emc.com) The leading supplier of storage products for midrange computers and mainframes. Founded in 1979 by Richard J. Egan and Roger Marino, EMC has developed advanced storage and retrieval technologies for the world's largest companies. performance, as well as extensive error diagnosis and protection mechanisms.
FlexRay has become the favored protocol of carmakers for high-end vehicle networks for several reasons. First, it is fault tolerant The ability to continue non-stop when a hardware failure occurs. A fault-tolerant system is designed from the ground up for reliability by building multiples of all critical components, such as CPUs, memories, disks and power supplies into the same computer. and time triggered, providing reliable, on-time delivery of messages for safety relevant applications. In addition, FlexRay is flexible and allows for a large freedom of network topologies ranging from point-to-point to both passive-bus and active-star topologies. Finally, it has over 20-fold more gross bandwidth than CAN, the bus used in existing chassis and powertrain applications.
The development of the TJA1080 transceiver is the result of NXP's extensive collaboration with key players in the automotive industry The automotive industry is the industry involved in the design, development, manufacture, marketing, and sale of motor vehicles. In 2006, more than 69 million motor vehicles, including cars and commercial vehicles were produced worldwide. from the FlexRay Consortium. NXP and BMW BMW
