The combination of the two offerings provides a flexible solution that can be applied to different phases of the automotive and engine control unit (ECU) development cycle. It is designed to aid in all stages of development including prototyping, simulation, implementation, analysis, and verification.

The Optolyzer Mocca FD and Optolyzer Studio software are designed to work for CAN FD, CAN, and LIN network development. The Optolyzer Mocca FD is an automotive network interface. It offers two interfaces that can be configured either as CAN FD, high-speed CAN, or single-wire CAN, four high-speed CAN interfaces, and six LIN interfaces. The company’s hardware component employs the Microchip MCP2561/2FD CAN FD transceiver.

The Studio software includes a graphical user interface that can be used to access the Optolyzer Mocca FD hardware. The Optolyzer Studio is a software tool that allows device configurations, e.g. bit-rates and bit timing, to be changed. In addition, the trace view displays the traffic on the attached buses and the behavior of signals can be observed in a graph view during online measurements.

“With the combination of the Optolyzer Mocca FD hardware interface and the Optolyzer, software, our automotive customers have one development solution at hand that allows them to efficiently work on CAN FD, CAN and LIN use cases over the entire design process,” said Matthias Karcher, senior manager at K2L. “We are proud to offer this solution to our customers and are confident that it will meet their needs.”
