The term network often means an association of electronic systems that exchange data.
Applications for Network
Nowadays, a network can be present in all things like laptops, tablets, smartphones, televisions, home electronics, etc.
After the turn of the millennium, there are other networks like LIN and FlexRay. LIN is a slower low-cost network, which is suitable
among other things for systems such as doors, seats and sunroofs. FlexRay, since 2006, is suitable for the high data rates of 10 Mbit/s, especially for time-critical applications in cars, like adaptive driving or safety systems.
