Networking Automotive Systems “SENT”
“SENT” stands for “single edge nibble transmission” and is an interface for fast data exchange between a sensor or actuator and a controller. Standardised under SAE J2716, SENT has been considered an alternative to classic analogue and PDM interfaces since 2007.
As an affordable high-speed alternative to the LIN bus, it is thus advancing to enter all vehicle classes.
LEYBOLD has developed a training system that involves two conventional sensors with a SENT interface. The signals can be practically examined using a time base diagram or also theoretically using a protocol analyser.
