Autonomous SerDes Analyzer, Tap, Gateway, Vehicle Interface & Data Logger

Today’s autonomous vehicles are capable of generating gigabytes of data per second. Testing and verifying these vehicles requires the ability to record large amounts of data at high speed. 

For these applications, Intrepid Control Systems introduces the RAD-Mars, the Autonomous Vehicle Gateway Module. RAD-Mars performs complex tasks such as transferring information from SerDes systems to other bus or network technologies. RAD-Mars interfaces over seven different networks.

  • ADAS Vehicle Gateway Module, 7 different networks 
  • Time Aligned synchronous recording
  • Camera Benchmarking
  • Image Sensor Raw Pixel Recording and Analysis
  • Automated SerDes Frame Analysis, FPS, Frame Width, Height
  • Automated Raw to JPG image conversions
  • Real Time Data Recorder 
  • Supports Virtual ECU Simulator Testing
  • Data Playback Analysis for CAN, Ethernet and Image data all on the same time base. 
  • Export of CAN, Ethernet and Image data in various formats 
  • Real time register manipulation and verification
  • Camera , Real Time Streaming and Translation 
  • Camera Link Analysis and Optimization with advanced Virtual Cable tester eye diagram analysis
  • Camera to Controller SerDes Tapping
  • Camera Technology Converter to Ethernet or between FPD-LinkIII<->GMSL
  • Automotive Ethernet Media Converter 2x100baseT1 to 2x1000BaseT ports

Key Features

  • Ethernet Ports:
    • 1x 10GBASE-T
    • 2x 100/1000BASE-T or 10/100/1000
    • 2x 100BASE-T1
  • Up to 4x high-speed SerDes (FPD Link III or GMSL2)
  • USB 3 for data offload and configuration via USB-C connector
  • 2x USB 2 host for neoVI MIC2
  • Programmable membrane label with LEDs to show network and storage status
  • 8x ISO CAN FD channels 
  • 2x FlexRay receive-only channels
  • 8+TB of storage 
  • On-board UPS for safe shutdown on power loss
  • Low power: 36W(3.0A @ 12V)
  • Time synchronization with other Intrepid tools and autonomous logger systems (ICS Time Sync, PTP)
  • High-speed serial interface input and output supporting TI FPD-Link III or Maxim GMSL for direct camera or sensor connection, simulation and tapping
  • Internal IMU and GPS chipsets with map reporting in VSPY
  • FPGA video frame compression/decimation

USB 3.1 Gen1 (5 Gb/s) provides high-speed offload, while a USB 2 high-speed host port allows MIC2 GPS and HMI triggering along with the ability to power connection Intrepid accessories, such as the RAD-Moon (100BASE-T1) or RAD-SuperMoon (1000BASE-T1) media converters. FPD-Link III and GMSL input and output provide direct connections to cameras and radar sensors.

The device can be powered from either the barrel jack or DB 26 HD vehicle connector. The HD-26 interface carries the RAD-Gigalog’s 8 ISO CAN FD channels and 2 FlexRay receive channels, while three RJ-45 jacks are provided for 10G/5G/2.5G and 10/100/1000 Ethernet.
