Cadence Design Systems Inc. has joined the FlexRay Consortium as a tool development member. The FlexRay Consortium is an organization formed to drive the adoption of an open standard for high-speed bus systems for distributed control applications in automobiles, such as x-by-wire.

"We believe our participation in the initiative can provide benefits to the other members by bringing our experience in system-level modeling of automotive communication protocols, as well as our advanced design methodologies and tools for distributed automotive network systems," said Guillaume d'Eyssautier, Cadence VP and GM for Europe.

As part of its contribution to the FlexRay Consortium, Cadence plans to develop a system-level FlexRay IP simulation model for the analysis, exploration and validation of advanced architectures featuring the FlexRay protocol. Simulation-based fault injection and error generation mechanisms included in the FlexRay IP simulation model, coupled with fault analysis capabilities provided by the Cadence tool, are expected to enable automotive architects and integrators to conduct an early assessment to help determine whether the distributed control application is likely to be safe in the presence of faults.
