Teledyne LeCroy introduced the industry’s first CAN Flexible Data (FD) Rate trigger and decode solution, adding to their existing suite of automotive test tools for CAN, LIN, FlexRay, SENT, MOST and BroadR Reach. The CAN FD trigger and decode solution enables designers using this new standard to gain unprecedented insight in to their systems, correlating physical layer signals and protocol layer data on a single display. The CAN FD trigger can isolate Frame IDs, specific data packets, remote frames and error frames. The decode uses a color coded overlay that clearly identifies different parts of the data being captured, allowing the user to quickly identify different parts of the CAN FD data such as Frame IDs, status bits, and message data
Along with having the best method of displaying decoded data, Teledyne LeCroy offers the ability to decode 4 busses simultaneously. These 4 busses can be a combination of any protocols, including CAN FD and classic CAN at the same time. Decoded data can also be seen in an interactive table. Entries in this table can be selected and automatically zoomed, preventing the need to scroll through long records. To further simplify how data is located, a search function is built in to the zoom trace to quickly locate a specific Frame ID or data message.
What is CAN Flexible Data (FD) Rate?
CAN FD is the next generation of the popular CAN standard. As CAN has reached the bandwidth limits of what it can transmit, CAN FD enables higher bit rates and longer data payloads. CAN FD goes beyond the 1 Mb/s limit of classic CAN and will transmit data at up to 10 Mb/s. CAN FD data payloads may now consist of 64 bytes per frame as opposed to the 8 byte per frame limit of classic CAN.
Pricing and Availability
CAN FD Trigger and Decode is available on a wide variety of Teledyne LeCroy oscilloscopes and has a US List price of $2,990. Teledyne LeCroy oscilloscope users who already have CAN Trigger and Decode can upgrade their system to CAN FD Trigger and Decode.
