EtherBADGELow-Cost CAN FD, LIN, Automotive Ethernet and Analog Device
The EtherBADGE is a low cost tool for learning In-Vehicle Networking. It supports Automotive Ethernet, CAN, LIN, as well as analog inputs and digital outputs on a single device. All of these networks and I/O can be controlled by the Intrepid’s powerful Vehicle Spy software as well as Intrepid’s open source APIs.
The EtherBADGE contains 8x analog inputs (6x 0-5V analog channels, 1x integrated potentiometer, 1x integrated temperature sensor) It can also drive 7x on-board LEDs to simulate load activation, as well as having 4x discrete 5V outputs to drive external loads.

Bus/Ring Topology using Daisy Chain
Create experiment with alternatives to the switch topology by using multiple switchBADGE and EtherBADGE. Here you could create a bus or ring topology by including a switch in every node. Optionally include a RAD-Galaxy multiport tap to monitor the performance of the network.
