Time-synchronous acquisition of measurement data
The ES523 module synchronizes all signals that are measured over the CAN and Ethernet channels. This makes the module ideally suited to the task of capturing signals transmitted in short time frames from an ECU via Ethernet through an interface synchronously with CAN and CAN FD signals.
Flexible addition of measurement technology
In addition to ECUs and vehicle buses, the Ethernet measurement modules of the ETAS and product families can be connected to the interface module. The measurement modules are then powered via connections built into the Ethernet connectors.
The ES523 module is supported , the ETAS tool for measuring and ECU calibration, from version 7.1.7 onward and the and add-ons for ECU diagnostics and flash programming from version 1.5.7 onward. In conjunction with the , the ES523 module can be used to simulate, analyze, and test CAN FD networks. In addition, the ETAS open-source software toolHardware Service Pack (HSP) supplies firmware updates from version 10.7.0 onward.
CAN FD (CAN with flexible data rate) is an improved, backward-compatible CAN protocol developed by Bosch. The principal differences to CAN consist in the increased payload data per message from 8 to 64 bytes, the higher transmission speeds of up to 8 Mbit/s, and the longer checksums, which enhance transfer reliability. CAN FD meets the automotive industry’s need for higher bandwidth for networks. At the same time, CAN FD nodes can be easily integrated into existing CAN infrastructure.
