… and we, as engineers, developed products for engineers,” explained Martin Litschel, one of the three founders, the success of Vector. He believes that a company not located close to Daimler and Bosch would not have been able to have the same success. “It was a home game,” added Eberhard Hinderer, also a founder of the company. But the success has many fathers: “The CiA membership gave us the chance to present our first CANalyzer tool already in 1992 at the Interkama exhibition for chicken feed,” said Dr. Helmut Schelling, the third founder, remembering the early days of the CAN business.

Press Release Open/close the description + the download link (except appnotes, addons, demos and presentations)A good combination – access to Ethernet and CAN with one device
Vector is introducing the new VN5610 device - a compact Ethernet/CAN interface with USB. Developers in the automotive and aerospace industries will benefit from simultaneous access to CAN networks and Ethernet-based systems such as Broad-R-Reach or AFDX® with just one interface. The new hardware can be used in tasks ranging from remaining bus simulations to Ethernet monitoring and synchronization of Ethernet frames with other bus systems such as CAN. In particular, developers will benefit from highly precise time stamps with a common time base for synchronizing the various systems.

In developing electronics for modern construction equipment, a large share can even be tested and simulated meaningfully on test benches. In later development stages, on the other hand, it is preferable to perform tests and trial runs under real conditions at construction sites or outdoor test sites. To avoid distracting the operator in the driver’s cabin with test equipment, a wireless interface has now been realized for the first time with the CANoe and CANalyzer development and analysis tools from Vector. Electronics developers at BOMAG GmbH now use this interface to log the communication on various vehicle buses at a distance and analyze it.

CAN with a flexible data rate (CAN FD) is a technological evolution of the CAN bus. The complexity of the technology is equivalent to the standard CAN bus but it offers a significantly increased bandwidth. CAN FD is therefore an alternative for FlexRay or Ethernet Networks. The network specialists at Vector investigated two typical applications, Measurement of ECU internal signals via XCP and ECU reprogramming, using the CAN FD bus system.

Demo limitation: access to any hardware interface not possible. The time management is done with Windows timers, so it cannot be assumed that the time behaviour of the full version will be the same as of the demo. This means that the simulation time of the demo version does not necessarily correspond to real time.

To speed up the download time, this setup does not contain the .NET 3.5SP1/4.0 framework. Depending of your operating system / program equipment, these may already be installed. Please check this before installing the demo version.

Car2x systems present entirely new challenges for managers in product development departments. For one, the Car2x ECU under study must communicate with a large number of vehicles and beacons in its environment. This increases the number of information exchanges and their complexity compared to previous network development in production vehicles. For another, IP standards have now made their way into the vehicle; however, this is uncharted territory for most developers using the IEEE 802.11p air interface. These challenges can already be overcome with tools that are adapted to this interface.

Already this year, Ethernet will be used as a system network in the first production vehicles. Therefore, the next step is to integrate Ethernet with established technologies in the automotive industry: CAN, FlexRay, LIN and MOST. Functional development tools exist for them, which make it easy for developers to analyze heterogeneous networks. On the Ethernet side, however, only standard tools from office communications exist, but they do not support the special physical layers and IP protocols of the automotive world. Therefore, development and test tools are urgently needed that can be used to analyze and test existing bus systems together with Ethernet networks. But what would be the exact requirements of these tools?

Until just a few years ago, the prevailing opinion was that Ethernet would never be used for in-vehicle applications, with the exception of diagnostic access. Soon, however, camera-based driver assistance systems will be the first applications to utilize Ethernet technology as a system network. This presents new challenges to automotive OEMs, suppliers and development tool producers, because the Internet Protocol and Ethernet represent a new network technology for motor vehicles. Nonetheless, many of the issues can already be solved.

Commercial airplanes are entering a new era in terms of the growing number of electronic components they contain. The systems, which are becoming increasingly more complex, need to be tested extensively in the laboratory and in flight trials. Data loggers can make an important contribution in debugging and error analysis. However, they must fulfill the stringent technical and regulatory requirements of the aerospace industry.

In networking ECUs in heavy-duty vehicles, it is the J1939 protocol that plays a key role. J1939 networks are based on the CAN bus (high-speed CAN per ISO11898); they are primarily used in powertrain and chassis components. The protocol creates a uniform basis for communication between electronic control units, and it supports the plug-and-play principle. Special J1939 tools and software components spare developers from needing to train in the details of the J1939 protocol, and they improve the quality of the development process.

The many different bus systems used in the development of electric/hybrid vehicles (EV/HEV) are pushing conventional hardware interfaces to their performance limits. A crucial factor in determining testing depth, analysis quality and simulation options is the degree of real-time performance in data exchange. Communication between vehicle networks and the test and simulation tools is of primary importance here. To satisfy these heightened requirements, Vector has added a modular high-performance interface with integrated real-time computer to its interfaces product line. This interface’s realtime performance leads to short deterministic cycle and response times and enables flexible use in the EV/HEV development field and in numerous new application areas.

When different bus systems are used in vehicles, the effort required for troubleshooting and analysis always increases. Laboratory tests are no longer sufficient to simulate real situations for communication in the total vehicle system. Only extensive test drives in the real environment can deliver the necessary testing depth. In test fleets, data loggers installed in the vehicles are the tool of choice for logging the data traffic of all buses and select I/O lines. This makes it possible to access the test drive data at any time in quality assurance tasks.
