CANdesc (desc = diagnostic embedded software component) is the ECU diagnostic software component in the development process of the CANdela product family. CANdesc enables vehicle and electronic control unit (ECU) manufacturers to implement the diagnostic protocol uniformly across different OEMs and their vehicle lines. CANdesc supports diagnostic communication via CAN, MOST, FlexRay. Any other bus system will be also supported using an optional abstract transport layer interface.
CANdesc can be ordered seamlessly integrated in the CANbedded world and also for stand-alone usage in a supplier-specific environment. To guarantee efficiency for different OEMs and vehicles, CANdesc is fully generated code. The generation process is based on the project-specific CANdela data base in which the diagnostic requirements are captured systematically and uniquely with the diagnostic specification tool CANdelaStudio.
