The primary application area of CANape is in optimizing parameterization (calibration) of electronic control units. Calibrate parameter values and simultaneously acquire measurement signals during system runtime. The physical interface between CANape and the ECU might be made via the CAN bus with CCP or XCP, for example.
Additionally CANape offers symbolic access to diagnostic data and services. As a result it has all relevant integrated functions for measurement, calibration, flashing and diagnostics.
