Automotive OPEN Alliance demonstrates first Interoperable Automotive Ethernet Platform.

The demonstration will take place at the 2015 OPEN all member meeting October 26 and the IEEE Ethernet & IP @ Automotive Tech Day, Booth #C3, October 27 – 28 in Yokohama, Japan and highlights physical layer transceivers (PHYs) of different vendors working together in a single platform.



The demonstration which is coordinated by us shows multi-vendor PHYs and switch products interconnected by multi-vendor cables and connectors simultaneously transferring HD video stream over the network. The demonstration includes PHYs from Broadcom, NXP and Realtek communicating over OPEN Alliance compliant cables made by Delphi, Molex, TE Connectivity and Yazaki.

Available for download: The LIN specification.
It is on the way to the ISO standardization: the LIN specification. Currently, however, the LIN Specification Package Revision 2.2A, which you can download here, is still valid.


Peer-reviewed: Our quality management.

In February it was that time again: The German National Accreditation body DAkkS has conducted a regular surveillance as part of the accreditation cycle - without variation. We are proud ....


C&S at Automotive Ethernet Congress 2015 in Munich.

On February 4-5 the Automotive Ethernet Congress 2015 took place in munich. A summary can be found on the website of the congress.

CAN FD. Our test system will test your CAN FD development.

Tried and True, and yet completely new: For decades now we test CAN. Of course, we follow the latest developments and so we have developed a test system for CAN FD and offer CAN FD tests since since the end of 2014.


In addition, we are currently working on the development of a Physical Layer Test System for CAN FD.

INVIO 2.0 is ready: For System Vision©. For CAN-FD. For CAN-PN.

INVIO 2.0 now offers even more possibilities. Network topologies can be configured easily and with more liberties. Analyzes, in addition to the simulator Saber© of Synopsys©, can now be carried out with the simulator SystemVision© of Mentor Graphics©. New and extended test criteria support the validation of classical CAN-, CAN-FD- and CAN-PN networks.

CAN FD made easy on the CAN FD Tech days.

Learn about the CAN FD protocol what you always wanted to know: On the CAN FD Tech Days everything will be about the CAN FD protocol that has recently been included in the ISO 11898-1.
We will be there to present our services around the CAN FD protocol and to answer your questions.  In addition,  Dipl.-Ing. Marko Moch from our office in Ingolstadt will give a lecture on the Validation of CAN FD Networks.


Meet us on 19 March 2015 at the CAN FD Tech Day in Munich.
More information about the CAN FD Tech Days can be found on the side of Can in Automation.

Ethernet. 2 Days for OEMs, Suppliers und Semiconductor Vendors in Detroit.

From October 23 to October 24, 2014, the IEEE-SA ETHERNET & IP @ AUTOMOTIVE TECHNOLOGY DAY will take place in Detroit. 

We are there .... you can meet us in Detroit!


Qualified: FORD ECU Tests.

The Background: Before an ECU may be used in one of the vehicles from Ford, they must have been tested by an independent body. For this, Ford has defined its own test method. To carry out these tests by using this test method, Ford has selected test houses, which have successfully submitted an extensive qualification process. In turn, an ECU is only recognized by Ford as tested when it has successfully completed the testing process by an in this way qualified ITV provider.



During the qualification process, we have shown that we have the necessary skills and the required experience. Therefore we can expand our existing portfolio.

CAN FD: Why and how testing is so important for interoperability. Listen to us on the 14th International CAN Conference in Paris.

From Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2013 to Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2013 the 14th international CAN conference will take place in Paris. On 13.11.2013 we will provide an insight into the need to test CAN FD implementations for conformance in a speech. Why do we need conformance tests? How can conformance tests help your CAN FD component to work together with other implementations? You are welcome to stop by – conference program details can be found on the online presentation of the CiA (CAN in Automation).


Electronic Systems for Motor Vehicles. We were in Baden-Baden.

From this year's congress Electronic Systems for Motor Vehicles Baden-Baden 2013 we had promised much also this time since parallel conferences focussed on issues of electrical and electronics in commercial vehicles and mobile machines. Read more under Our Actvities and the online presence of the congress



Complementary. Cooperation with Atlastitan.

In June we have signed a cooperation agreement with the Atlastitan. The company, which adds projectpartner to its name, offers a complete service model around project consulting, project support and project implementation.

Test CAN FD? Sure thing!

New developments, even if they appear to be  'only' an extension, need to be tested. We already deal now with the extension of the test specification and the development of an appropriate test system, so you can be on the safe side with the use of the new protocol.

We are the contacts for manufacturers and users in the automotive industry and other industries.

Traveling on business to learn about the future.
According to the organizers, it is the world's largest exhibition of its kind: the Embedded World. It was held this year from February 25 - 27 in Nürnberg, DE. We also have informed ourselves about current developments and trends and had many interesting conversations.

On  March 19, 2013 we accepted the invitation of CAN in Automation (CiA) and visited the CAN FD Tech Day in Frankfurt/Main.


Started: 2013.

All of us at C&S join in wishing you a good start to a successful year in 2013! We are really glad to get to know some of you in this year.
And, for all our existing customers and partners, we are definitely looking forward to continuing our cooperation for many years to come.
