Vehicle Communication Gateway

The VCG Vehicle Communication Gateway allows users to bridge multiple modules and busses including CAN, CAN-FD, LIN and Automotive Ethernet with this single, innovative, easy to configure standalone data translation device. The VCG will host user-developed programs for applications such as node simulation, watchdog timer functions, CAN to CAN FD translation and more.

The VCG housing is weatherproof and easy to configure and features multi-port, multi-bus message routing and data translation. VCG is designed for both in-vehicle or test cell use.

Application - Pre Production


For Pre Production use case ATI's VCG simulates a node and/or gateway on a development network. In this example the VCG is receiving a CAN FD signal from an ECU and broadcasting a LIN signal to the motor, simulating a new module.
Vehicle Communication Gateway Pre Production use case
Application - Post Production
For Post Production use case ATI's VCG acts as a gateway between vehicle network(s). In this example the VCG is receiving a CAN FD signal from an ECU and translating the signal to a Classic CAN format, which is what the switch is expecting.
