THE PRODUCT SUPPORTS MICROCHIP TECHNOLOGY and other 3rd party hardware development tools for designing devices and systems that enable data communication over CAN, LIN, Flexray, and Most networks. According to the company, the software shortens time-to-market for all activities related to test and simulation and covers all requirements for conducting analysis and verification, helping to ensure quality from the earliest design stages.

The company provides several different editions of its graphical user interface (GUI) software that enable customized function ranges for specific use cases. The Entry Edition is available for $390, and can be used with Microchip Technology’s CAN Bus Analyzer Tool. This tool is a CAN monitor which can be used to develop and debug a CAN network. The tool features a range of functions, which allow it to be used across various market segments including automotive, industrial, medical, and marine. The toolkit comes with all the hardware and software required to connect a CAN network to a PC.

“Automotive engineers are continually grappling with challenges such as shorter development cycles and higher design complexity,” said Matthias Karcher, K2L’s senior manager. “Our new Optolyzer Studio GUI software offers them a comprehensive and easy-to-use tool chain that addresses these issues and performs as needed, every time, for all applications and use cases.”
