EXPLINOVO - CATCHTHEBUS® - THE CONTROLLER THAT CAN DO MORE

AS AN EXPERT FOR AUTOMOBILE COMMUNICATION NETWORKS, THE EXPLINOVO TEAM DEVELOPS HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE TOOLS FOR BUS SYSTEMS.

 

CatchTheBus is a freely programmable ECU. It supports several communication protocols each being implemented on separated modules. Very rapidly, the user is able to develop multiple applications by simply using the provided user friendly drivers and source code examples. 

     

Interfaces CatchTheBUs

  • 1x FlexRay
  • 5x CAN (4x CAN FD)
  • 2x LIN
  • 1x Ethernet
  • 2x Powerline Communication
  • 2x RS-232
  • 4x Digital Outputs
  • 2x Analog Inputs
     

CatchTheBus is the ideal solution for the rapid prototyping of gateways, sensor/actuator or test bench applications. It provides an easy access to wide spread communication buses and the possibility to concentrate on algorithms. An innovative hardware architecture allows swapping modules or developing new ones easily. 

     

     

 

     
       

Properties

  • Expandable - Lego blocks principle
  • Ease of use - commissioning of each interface within a few minutes
  • High quaity API (MISRA-C)
  • Source code examples available
  • Real time behavior
  • Stand alone solution
  • Compact
  • Connection to a PC via Ethernet
     

Field of application

  • Rapid Control Prototyping
  • Gateways
  • Remaining bus simulation
  • Signal Manipulation
  • Network Interface
  • Sensor / actuator systems
     

For the Rapid Prototyping of new functionalities a freely programmable ECU builds an ideal solution to reduce costs and speed up the development process. CatchTheBus allows the highest level of flexibility and leaves no open wishes to application developers. The user has the possibility to choose what component he wants to assemble and thus decide about the properties of the product. Several modules are already available, each sold separately. This allows minimizing the costs without losing the possibility to extend the system later on. With only one ECU the user can cover a huge palette of different applications needing different interfaces.

Source code examples combined with well documented user friendly drivers (more than 80’000 lines of source code, MISRA-C compliant) saves up to 45% of the development time. CatchTheBus® doesn’t use a configuration software, but is simply programmed in C.

It’s an investment in an up-to-date solution for today and tomorrow.
