Anti-lock brake systems, automated steering, on-board navigation and even entertainment systems are examples of multiplexed networks in action, and the list of automotive and other major industrial applications of multiplexed networks and embedded systems is growing rapidly. Practitioner Paret gives students and professionals a solid background in a variety of the technology and its devices, including controller area networks (CANs), local interconnect networks (LINs), and emerging buses, including the possibilities for linking them, and how to design fail-safe system basis chips and other gateways. She starts with the CAN bus, describing its protocols, properties and novel features, its physical layer and its medium and implementation, components and applications, and its time-triggered features. She then describes new multiplexed bus concepts, including the LIN, gateways, "safe-by-wire" buses, audio-visual buses, radio-frequency communications and wireless mini-networks.
