Mentor Graphics Corp. has revealed that its Volcano VSA product for network design of both AUTOSAR-based and non-AUTOSAR electronic control units (ECUs) now supports automotive Ethernet.

Increasingly, in areas in which high bandwidth and reliable performance are essential Ethernet is being used. These include advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), vehicle network backbones, audio video bridging (AVB) systems and diagnostic communication over Internet Protocol (DoIP).

The Mentor Volcano VSA tool addresses the network-wide timing analysis challenges where a mixture of CAN, FlexRay and Ethernet-based network busses co-exist. The AUTOSAR standard supports timing definition for all elements in a mixed-topology network. The Volcano VSA tool addresses the challenge of accounting for the many different timing paths.

AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture) is an open and standardised automotive software architecture, jointly developed by automobile manufacturers, suppliers and tool developers. The latest solution from Mentor now allows users of Volcano VSA to develop and integrate networking functions in an AUTOSAR environment.
