Developing and testing CAN and Ethernet-based networks with a single tool

CANoe.IP extends the development and test tool CANoe by adding specific functions for embedded Ethernet systems. As a multi-network tool, CANoe.IP is the choice for use in systems with different networks such as CAN and Ethernet. In addition, developers benefit from wireless receiving and sending of CAN messages from mobile or difficult-to-access CAN bus systems (CAN tunneling).

Option IP for CANoe and CANalyzer from Vector Informatik (Stuttgart, Germany) is a powerful and flexible extension for simulating, analyzing and testing embedded Ethernet systems. By supporting Ethernet and protocols based on it such as IP, TCP and UDP as well as CAN tunneling, its range of use has been extended to address new requirements such as those of Car2x or remote diagnostics. Currently, standards do not exist yet for Ethernet-based communication in the automotive field. Simple integration of OEM-specific protocols is therefore an important aspect that was considered in the design of CANoe.IP.

A focus on data contents such as signals, and their display and conversion to physical values, simplifies reliable handling of data and increases development efficiency. Especially when CAN-Ethernet gateways are used, CANalyzer and CANoe support the user in measuring gateway throughput times and in simulating gateways for vehicle diagnostics. All of these tasks can be performed with a single tool. This eliminates the need to train in numerous different tools. For example, the Trace Window enables analysis of different communication channels such as CAN and Ethernet in one window and therefore with a common time base. Option IP makes it possible to receive and send CAN messages by WLAN or Ethernet (CAN tunneling). In Car2Car and Car2x applications this makes it possible to simultaneously analyze data communication involving multiple vehicles. Other areas of application include field testing of agricultural and construction equipment, remote control of engine test benches and HIL tests as well as observation of crash tests.
