National Instruments (NI) disclosed in a press release that automotive engineers can now use its new FlexRay library for LabVIEW to quickly and easily test devices on a FlexRay communications network.

The FlexRay library offers a set of 28 virtual instruments (VIs) designed to work with the bus protocol defined by the FlexRay Consortium's System Specifications Version 2.0 standard. According to NI, the FlexRay fault-tolerant and high-speed bus system delivers the error tolerance and time-determinism performance requirements for x-by-wire applicationssuch as drive-by-wire, steer-by-wire and break-by-wireand has a data frame up to 127 words (254 bytes), which is more than 30 times the amount offered by a Control Area Network (CAN) bus.

The free, downloadable FlexRay library for LabView makes it easy for engineers to communicate with devices on a FlexRay network, said NI. In addition, the FlexRay library for LabView supports the FlexCard from TZM.
