Technical Article (2/2): IP Concepts With CAN XL

Transformation of SOME/IP Towards SOME/CAN

The networking of future generations of automobiles will be based primarily on use of the various Ethernet and CAN variants. While Ethernet dominates with its service-based IP communication and SOME/IP middleware at the level of assistance systems, signal-based CAN networking will continue to exist long into the future in the drive and chassis sector. The new CAN XL should assume an important role in enabling these two fundamentally different concepts to co-exist and to work alongside one another. This raises questions as to whether the CAN XL ECU participates in service-based communication, and about the possible ways that might exist for enabling this to happen.
