DiagNation Network Nightmares Series Network Protocols Waveforms Reference

Authors: Adam Robertson and Gary Smith

Communication network diagnostics are by far one of the toughest diagnostic challenges in the automotive service industry today. Manufacturers have deployed an ever-changing variety of standardized (and proprietary) network protocols to communicate between modules and via gateways between multiple networks. These systems have morphed into multi-layered control, transport and PHY configurations running on complex topologies, with Transport Layer packets that now handle multiple protocols data transport simultaneously.

In modern vehicles, because modules share critical data between domain controllers, diagnosing, debugging and tracking down intermittent network faults in any automotive or truck platform can be exceedingly challenging, whether at end of line in production or once out in the field with unpredictable environmental and physical impacts in play.
