The increasing use of electronic components in today’s automobiles demands more powerful in-vehicle network communication protocols. FlexRay protocol, which is expected to be the de-facto standard in the near future, is a deterministic, fault tolerant and fast protocol designed for in vehicle communication. The current de-facto in-vehicle communication standard, CAN, and the future in-vehicle communication standard FlexRay will exist together in future cars. Data exchange between these two standards will be performed via Gateway units. In this thesis, end-to-end performance of a FlexRay-CAN network connected by a Gateway is evaluated as well as Gateway functionality and processing delay. The results of the experiments, which are performed for a realistic message set with various scheduling schemes, are presented and discussed.

Öztürk, Can; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Schmidt, Klaus Werner; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2013)
The increasing use of electronic components in today’s automobiles demands more powerful in-vehicle network communication protocols. FlexRay protocol, which is expected to be the de-facto standard in the near future, is a deterministic, fault tolerant and fast protocol designed for in vehicle communication. For proper operation of a FlexRay network the communication schedule needs to be computed and the nodes need to be configured before startup. Current software tools that are geared towards FlexRay only d...
Fully digital parallel operated switch-mode power supply modules for telecommunications
Kutluay, Koray; Ermiş, Muammer; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
Digitally-controlled, high power universal telecommunication power supply modules have been developed. In this work, the converter control strategy, and its design and implementation first, by means of parallel-operated, dual, 8-bit microcontrollers, and then by using a high processing power digital signal processor (DSP) have been emphasized. The proposed dual-processor based digital controller provides an extended operating output voltage range of the power supplies, user programmable current limit settin...
Cluster based user scheduling schemes to exploit multiuser diversity in wireless broadcast channels
Soydan, Yusuf; Candan, Çağatay; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2008)
Diversity methods are used to improve the reliability of the communication between transmitter and receiver. These methods use redundancy to reduce the errors in the communication link. Apart from the conventional diversity methods, multiuser diversity has an aim of maximizing the sum capacity of a multi-user system. To benefit from multiuser diversity, the opportunistic scheduling method grants the channel access to the user which has the best channel quality among all users. Therefore, the cumulative sum ...
Analysis of conventional low voltage power line communication methods for automatic meter reading and the classification and experimental verification of noise types for low voltage power line communication network
Danışman, Batuhan; Sevaioğlu, Osman; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
In this thesis, the conventional low voltage power line communication methods is investigated in the axis of automated meter reading applications and the classification and experimental verification of common noise types for low voltage power line communication network. The investigated system provides the real time transmission of electricity consumption data recorded by electricity meters, initially to a local computer via a low voltage line through a low speed PLC (Power Line Carrier) environment and sub...
