The D-Bug12XZ firmware combined with the Freescale LFBDMPGMR BDM programmer hardware provides a powerful low-level debugging environment for S12 and S12X MagniV devices. There are times when Electronic Control Modules (ECM) in a car will become inoperative or unresponsive to normal communication channels such as CAN or LIN. The Background Debug Module (BDM) on these devices combined with the D-Bug12XZ debugger provides the ability to reliably ‘hot-connect’ to the S12 and S12X MagniV devices without resetting or disturbing the running target. Once BDM communications is established with the target, the MCU’s I/O and memory resources can be uploaded for analysis. This session will teach the features and use of these tools to ‘hot connect’ to an unresponsive target MCU with the goal of determining the possible cause of the software and/or hardware failure.
Ethernet has become one of the most discussed technologies in automotive vehicle communications. This presentation will provide an overview of the standards encompassing Automotive Ethernet. As well as address the challenges in implementing the technology among different applications.
The standard CAN protocol has been extended into CAN Flexible Data (FD) to provide higher bandwidth while keeping the physical characteristics that have made it the most popular automotive in-vehicle communications protocol . This presentation will provide an overview of the changes to the standard as well as address the challenges faced while rolling out and implementing the technology.
The need is increasing to program a second application code image in flash while still executing the microcontroller's application and then switching to the new code image. Example implementations for Freescale microcontroller architectures are presented to demonstrate how to do concurrent programming with application execution and subsequent remap to the new application code image.
This session will explain how to migrate between the QorIQ T2081 and T1040 communications processor families by achieving hardware and software compatibility. The session will also discuss hardware, software and board-level considerations that exist while migrating between these processors and designing a common board for these processors.
PROFIBUS, CAN and RS232 are extensively used in communications networks in factories, buildings, transport infrastructures and monitoring/control equipment in our cities. Ethernet offers higher bandwidth and, in many cases, lowers cost--especially when deployed in daisy-chain topology. Technologies such as EtherCAT, PROFINET and EtherNet/IP are testament to this. In this session, we will explore how QorIQ processor families can help equipment manufacturers span this landscape using a QUICC Engine (QE) controller for UART/Ethernet-based protocol implementation, a Enhanced Triple Speed Ethernet Controller (eTSEC) for intelligent Ethernet classification and 2-port switching, and an eight-port gigabit Ethernet switch for wire-rate switching. Reference design software and hardware files will be available to help you start your own PROFIBUS and PROFINET designs.
With the increasing number of things connecting to the internet, protecting your devices and data from external threats will be a priority design consideration. Avnet and Wind River will present a comprehensive solution IoT Security for the Freescale LS1021A, running on the LS1021A-IOT Gateway, including secure boot, access control, device authentication, and application-level security.
Kits include FRDM-34931S-EVB, FRDM-KL25Z, power supply, brushed DC motor and GUI on mbed™ site. We will show how to load and use a GUI from the mbed site to drive the motor, cover PEx software, and discuss the strengths of the MC34931S for industrial applications.
Functional Safety is one of the key technical trends of automotive application. The developer may encounter great challenges without IC suppliers’ strong support on functional safety ready products and relevant enablement and knowledge. Freescale SafeAssure program will greatly relief designers’ difficulties on ECU development targeting compliance with ISO26262. Details on using functional safety manual and dynamic FMEDA to design safety ECU are discussed in this session.
This session will introduce the latest Freescale 32-bit MCU designed for instrument cluster applications. We will spend time looking at the features and review the typical application configuration, software strategy and Freescale enablement built for this instrument cluster solution.
