CAN, CAN FD, and LIN Network Analysis In One Tool From Warwick

Warwick Control Technologies has released a new version of the powerful network analysis tool X-Analyser (version 3.12.0).  This now provides CAN CAN FD and LIN all in one tool, along with the CAN higher layer protocols SAE J1939, NMEA2000 and CANopen.

This is available in a kit which includes the Kvaser Hybrid two-channel interface and can be used to test CAN, CAN FD and LIN systems via one interface.  The two channels of the Kvaser interface can be mapped to the X-Analyser software in any combination of these network protocols that you wish, e.g. channel 1 can be LIN and channel 2 can be CAN FD.  This makes the kit a very versatile and cost-effective tool for testing CAN, CAN FD and LIN systems.

An optional feature is the CAN Physical Layer Analyser via the PicoScope 2206b USB oscilloscope (if purchased as an optional extra) which:

  • Scans the CAN bus for 10 seconds and records 1 example of each CAN message
  • User can click on the CAN identifier and view the CAN_H, CAN_L and differential of the entire CAN frame in an oscilloscope type view
  • Each CAN frame trace for CAN_H and CAN_L electrical signals

It comes with 1-year email support which includes free updates.  Subsequent maintenance contracts are available.

The X-Analyser supports all Kvaser CAN, CAN FD and LIN interfaces.
