CANalyzer packs diagnostic console with editor

Vector Informatik has rolled out a CANalyzer with basic diagnostics and control panels that offers additional ways to stimulate and analyse CAN, LIN, MOST and FlexRay networks or Electronic Control Units (ECUs). In combination with the new VN8900 network interface from Vector, CANalyzer performance has also been significantly improved.

In the framework of network analysis, CANalyzer now gives users the ability to access an ECU via diagnostics. First, the user defines a diagnostic request directly in the integrated Basic Diagnostic Editor, e.g. based on UDS

(ISO14229). There is no longer any need for a complex ODX description file or an additional diagnostic tester. Next, the user parameterizes and sends out the diagnostic requests interactively from the Diagnostic Console. The response is analysed in the usual way in the Trace window, which clearly shows the individual diagnostic parameters.

CANalyzer operation has been simplified as well. Until now, it was only possible to control stimulation and analysis blocks by keyboard commands, but now this can also be done conveniently in user-customised control

panels. New global system variables make the links between input boxes or buttons and the program logic. These variables make it easy to exchange data between different CAPL programs, the user interface, analysis windows and the COM interface.

Version 7.2 also supports full functionality of the new VN8900 network interface, including up to four CAN or LIN channels as well as integrated analogue and digital I/Os. PWM output and measurement are also supported.

With the integrated Intel Atom platform, computationally intensive tasks of CANalyzer are executed directly on the VN8900, which relieves the task load of the user PC. A stand-alone mode is in preparation; it will be able to load the CANalyzer configuration onto the VN8900, which can then be operated autonomously.
