In the world of electronic data, the bus carries various types of messages formatted to report status, issue commands and request data. While market demand for vehicle electronics are driving innovation and complexity, the networked vehicle originated from government requirements to control and regulate vehicle emissions and reduce air pollution. Soon after, multiple studies showed that adding sophisticated at the time features such as antilock brakes and air bags saved lives. Adding these quickly mandated features required even more hardware and software to be added as standard features on every vehicle. The SAE sought to establish this standard across all brands of heavy duty trucks in order to avoid the discrepant and proprietary protocols adopted by the manufacturers of light duty vehicles. This standard was put into production vehicles as a standard.

The protocol is maintained by SAE International. A message is composed of up to 21 characters, unless the engine is stopped and the vehicle is not moving in which case transmitters are allowed to exceed the 21 byte max message length.

Characters are transmitted in the common 8N1 format. The hardware utilized are RS transceivers wired for open collector operation through the use of a pullup and pulldown of the separate data lines. Transmission is accomplished by controlling the driver enable pin of the transceiver.

This method allows multiple devices to share the bus without the need for a single master node. Collisions are avoided by monitoring the bus while transmitting the MID to ensure that another node has not simultaneously transmitted a MID with a higher priority. Some quick facts: Describes the physical and data link layer according to OSI model. Based on electronic properties from the RS bus. Twisted pair wire with a maximum length of 40m. The network is based on a bus topology.

Serial byte-oriented communication with least significant byte first. Transmission rate bps. A message can be up to 21 bytes long. Error detection and handling at collision of message transmission. J protocol uses the same transceiver as RS The bus network supports at least 20 nodes with these transceivers. J does not use the bus termination resistors used by RS J is an automotive diagnostic protocol standard developed by the Society of Automotive Engineers SAE for heavy-duty and most medium-duty vehicles built after The J protocol uses different diagnostic connectors.

Up to , individual OEMs used their own connectors. From to , the 6-pin Deutsch-connector was standard. Beginning in , most OEMs converted to the 9-pin Deutsch. Some OEMs still use the 6-pin Deutsch. It has mostly been used for US made vehicles, and also by Volvo. Other European brands have usually used KWP. Some quick facts: The J protocol defines the format of J messages sent between microprocessors devices in heavy duty vehicles. It also supports communication with external devices connected to the bus.

J is an application layer and is used together with J, which is the physical layer. J describes a message format and defines parameters. The length of a J message is limited to 21 bytes according to J J allows for sending messages longer than 21 bytes using a connection oriented transport service COTS.

In typical applications, a half-duplex RS transceiver chip is used to connect to the bus. In order to avoid collisions, J protocol rules dictate that the device must monitor the data bus while transmitting the first byte MID of its message.

The question is, how is this possible using a half-duplex transceiver? In other devices, half-duplex implied that receiving during transmission was not possible. Does the Receiver Output pin of the transceiver match the Driver Input during transmission?

This means that the driver is effectively switching directions on every bit. This is similar to CANbus, in which one of the bit values is "dominant" and the other is "recessive". The logic of each node is supposed monitor the recessive bits of the MID byte to determine whether any other node is transmitting a dominant bit at that time. If it detects this condition, the other node has a higher-priority message, and this node should immediately drop out and retry its message later.


Introduction to the SAE J1939 Protocol

But what is a J SPN? For a given entry of this message ID, we also logged 8 bytes of raw data - now, how do we interpret and convert this? In that case we see from the PGN info that relevant data is in byte 4 and 5, i. Taking the decimal form of 0x Intel byte order , we get decimal. To arrive at the RPM, we conduct a scaling of this value using the offset 0 and the scale 0.

Examples of such vehicles are school busses, cement mixers, military vehicles, and semi-tractors. J specifies exactly how information e. J defines the data priority, size, scaling, offset, and transmission rate. The standard goes on to define additional aspects, including how large messages are fragmented and reassembled, message timeouts, network speed, the physical layer, and how applications, not ECUs, acquire network source addresses. The PGN serves to identify the message and its data.
