If you read German.

http://www.rvs.uni-bielefeld.de/publications/Papers/HazAn_2012_09_13-pub.pdf is fairly minimal.

Bernd Sieker's PhD thesis uses some logic, but is neither minimal nor a small reference [see Footnote]:
http://www.rvs.uni-bielefeld.de/publications/Theses/Dissertation_Bernd_Sieker.pdf

An example in English, also not a commercial exercise, although based on a generic automotive bus design in the Bosch Handbook on Automotive Electrics and Electronics (to a previous edition of which we contributed), is
http://www.rvs.uni-bielefeld.de/publications/books/ComputerSafetyBook/09-Kapitel_9.pdf

This example was considerably extended by some Uni-Bielefeld students, but again the documents are in German, and somewhat unrefined (lots of tables, minimal to zero explanation).

The issue, as so often, is that stuff one does for clients remains the property of the clients and doesn't reach the public domain. With our limited resources, I have never solved that problem of marketing. Other academic colleagues seem to be wonderful at it, but I just don't have that talent.

PBL [Footnote] Academic institutions generally, unfortunately, don't consider either property to be desirable :-( . Although I did have a pal in grad school who wanted to hand in a one-page math thesis. He was after a finite projective plane of order 10, and figured that, if he got one, he'd just be able to draw it and hand it in. Things didn't turn out that way, however. I found some history at https://www.maa.org/sites/default/files/pdf/upload_library/22/Ford/Lam305-318.pdf
