  • Patent number: 10382222
    Abstract: A method for protecting configuration data from a data bus transceiver operable in a subnetwork mode. The configuration data are provided for comparison with data bus message data arriving via a data bus. A reference checksum for the configuration data is generated and stored, and recurrently checked. In the event of an identified alteration, a wake-up signal and/or a piece of error information is output. During or after writing the configuration data to a configuration register via the data bus or directly before the change to the low-power mode of the electronic control unit, a checksum unit forms a checksum that is stored in a reference register. In the low-power mode of the electronic control unit, the checksum for the configuration is repeatedly recomputed and compared with the checksum stored in the reference register. If the recomputed checksum does not match the stored checksum, a wake-up process is triggered.

  • Publication number: 20180069723
    Abstract: A method for transmitting messages in a data bus system, wherein the messages can be transmitted in the form of data frames by a data bus and a data frame that is to be sent by a bus subscriber is checked for a piece of changeover information, which method is furthermore distinguished in that changeover of the rise time and/or edge shape of edges of bit pulses of the data frame that is to be sent is performed on the basis of the presence of a defined value of the piece of changeover information. In addition, a corresponding transceiver and to an electronic control unit is disclosed.

  • Patent number: 7123002
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a system for reliably transmitting the position of a control element to an electronic processing unit by way of electric signal lines, wherein the position signal is transmitted by way of several signal channels, and use thereof in a motor vehicle brake system. The present invention further describes a position transmitter for transmitting position signals with a magnetic encoder which is displaceable by a control element in relation to a magnetic transformer, wherein the magnetic transformer(s) along with an integrated electronic signal-conditioning circuit are arranged in an electronic sensor subassembly, as well as a receiving device for receiving a position signal comprising several processing channels for processing the position signals of the position transmitter.
