The latest version of Vector’s (Germany) development, simulation and testing tool, CANoe 8.2, provides users with extensions for current bus systems such as CAN FD. It also offers extensions for test automation.
IN THIS VERSION, USERS GET CAN FD SUPPORT, which has been extended further with diagnostics and XCP. In addition, CAN FD now supports Option Scope, which also enables the analysis of Flexray. Another improvement was made for Ethernet. For the first time, users can work with Some/IP Protocol Data Units (PDU). They also see more details in the Detailed View of the Trace Window for Some/IP messages, and they are now able to describe Ethernet networks based on Fibex 4.1.

The revised version can integrate Test Units created with the vTeststudio test automation tool and it is possible to debug these test modules. As a runtime environment, it also offers an ASAM-XIL interface for open access to other test execution platforms. The Interaction Layer, a central component in CANoe for creating a remaining bus simulation, is user-configurable via dialogs. This makes it possible to modify the transmission model without having to change it directly in the network descriptions.

Existing functions and options have also been supplemented or revised in this version. For example, the revised Graphics Window lets users adapt its configuration to individual needs faster. The Trace Window was also modified. Here, users benefit from features like improved buffer navigation, which lets them navigate through long data histories. The number of events that are directly visible in the Trace Window is also configurable.
All information on CANoe 8.2 functionality will be covered in a webinar on May 26, 2014.
