CHESTNUT RIDGE, N.Y., 18 June 2014. Teledyne LeCroy extends its portfolio of test tool for CAN, LIN, FlexRay, SENT, MOST, and BroadR Reach with the CAN Flexible Data (FD) Rate trigger and decode solution.
The CAN FD trigger and decode solution enables designers using this new standard to gain 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. A color-coded overlay identifies different parts of the data being captured, allowing the user to identify different parts of the CAN FD data, such as Frame IDs, status bits, and message data.
Teledyne LeCroy offers the ability to decode 4 busses simultaneously. The 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.
Teledyne LeCroy also offeres a range of serial bus trigger and decode solutions ranging from I2C and UART to USB3 and PCIe Gen 3.
CAN FD is the next generation of the popular CAN standard. 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.
CAN FD Trigger and Decode is available on a wide variety of Teledyne LeCroy oscilloscopes and has a U.S. 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.
