CAN-FD Standard Enables Higher Data Throughput
With a flexible data rate over previous CAN limits, the CAN-FD network protocol provides faster and more reliable data transmission in automotive networks. Larger data payloads improve the CAN protocol’s efficiency and result in a higher communications throughput. Already widely in use in Germany, CAN-FD is commonly used in automotive applications such as OEM, system design and in real-time ECU simulation. At CAS DataLoggers we can provide your automotive application with real-time systems from German manufacturer Jager-ADwin. Give our experienced Applications Engineers a call today at (800) 956-4437!
CAN-FD for Faster Data Rates:
In 2012 Bosch released CAN FD 1.0, also known as CAN with Flexible Data-Rate. The Can FD specification allows for improved bandwidth in both automotive and general industrial applications. Using a different frame format allowing for faster bit rates and a different data length, CAN FD is compatible with existing CAN 2.0 networks, so new CAN FD devices can coexist on the same network with existing CAN devices.
The ISO 11898-1:2015 standard specifies both the CAN and the CAN-FD protocols. CAN-FD boosts the bit-rate when only a single node is sending data, since synchronization with other nodes is not required. This allows users to break the CAN data transmit speed of 1 Mbit/s in the data phase where bitrate is only restricted by the individual transceiver. CAN-FD is also more reliable owing to improved failure detection.
ADwin for Real-Time Monitoring:
In automotive CAN and CAN-FD applications, German manufacturer Jager-ADwin is ideal for real-time data capture. ADwin real-time data acquisition systems are used for testing Automotive components, sensors and ECU’s, electrical component test, control of servohydraulic systems, motion control, laser and ebeam control, signal generation and high- speed synchronized data acquisition.
ADwin systems support parallel real-time processes while running independently of the PC’s operating system. These systems provide deterministic operation with response times of 1 usec. or less. A key feature of these products is their tightly-coupled analog and digital inputs along with counters which provide extremely low-latency operation.
ADwin systems are available in 3 form factors:
- The ADwin-Light-16 which offers 8 analog inputs—ideal for small-channel test applications.
- The ADwin Gold/Gold II with 16 analog inputs;
- and the ADwin-Pro/Pro II Series which utilize a modular form factor with plug-in modules to allow up to 480 analog or digital inputs in a single chassis.
Support and Software:
ADwin also offers a variety of other I/O options including CANbus, SSI, Profibus/Fieldbus, RS-232/485, and signal conditioner modules. Unmatched in the measurement technology industry, ADwin products stay supported regardless of longevity.
The ADwin software environment can be used under Windows (95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP/Windows 7) and LINUX or as a stand-alone data acquisition system. Also, ADwin has drivers for many of the popular programming environments including VB, VC/C++, LabVIEW, TestPoint and others. Software upgrades are free.
