VX1000 Measurement & Calibration Hardware

The VX1000 System is a scalable solution with top performance for your measurement and calibration tasks. It can be used in the vehicle – both in the interior and in the engine compartment –, on test benches and in the laboratory.
The system forms the interface between the ECU and a measurement and calibration tool such as CANape. For high data throughput with minimal impact on ECU run-time, data is accessed over the microcontroller-specific data trace and debug ports.

The VX1000 base module is connected to a PC over XCP on Ethernet. XCP on Ethernet is an OEM-independent ASAM standard that is widely used in the automotive industry. The VX1000 measurement hardware is connected to the ECU via a POD (Plug-On device). Either the serial POD or HSSL POD is used, depending on which microcontroller interface is available.

Overview of Advantages:

  • Very small adapter (POD) for the ECU interface
  • High measurement data throughput of up to 30 Mbyte/sec
  • Short measurement intervals of less than 15 µs possible
  • Function bypassing with very short latency times
  • Flash programming of "brain-dead" ECUs
  • Just minor ECU code changes for measurement data acquisition
  • No impact on ECU run-time with data trace measurement method
  • Galvanically isolated power supply with wide input voltage range
  • Connection over standardized ASAM protocol XCP on Ethernet
  • Four fully-featured CAN channels and one FlexRay monitoring channel
