CAN FD in test and analysis tools

Vector supports the ISO11898-1: 2015 ISO standard for CAN and CAN FD in version 8.5 of its CANoe development, simulation, and test tool and its CANalyzer analysis tool.

IN VERSION 8.5 OF THESE PRODUCTS, changes and extensions are supported which are specified for CAN FD in the new ISO standard. They primarily relate to the new CAN FD format, which has been supplemented by another protocol verification element, the "Stuff Count" in the CRC field.

Vector (Germany) will also provide a significantly higher resolution for configuring bit timing than the ISO specification requires. This permits an exact configuration of the sampling time point for a bit, in both the arbitration phase and data phase. In terms of bus interfaces, all that CANoe and CANalyzer users will need is a new driver that supports the ISO standard; it will be available in the second quarter of 2015. Two driver implementations will be available: one for ISO and one for non-ISO applications; both will be supported by CANoe und CANalyzer 8.5.
