CAN FD test support available on Tek's MDO3000 and MDO4000C scopes
Tektronix has introduced complete CAN FD protocol trigger, decode and search solution for its MDO3000 and MDO4000C Series of mixed domain oscilloscopes. This test systems allow to help to speed up the development of CAN FD in automotives.
The original CAN specification defined in the ISO 11898 standard limits communication speeds to 1 Mb/s, where as the CAN FD basically figure out the high and low frequency imitation problem by allowing faster bit rates and also increases the payload size from 8 bytes to 64 bytes helping to speed up the CAN.
"For automotive engineers making the move to CAN FD, the combination of our complete testing solution and our mixed domain oscilloscopes, which offer unparalleled integrated functionality and a full suite of accessories, is very compelling," said Chris Witt, general manager, Time Domain Business Unit, Tektronix. "We are committed to giving our customers in the automotive sector the market-leading solutions they need to be successful."
Following are the features shared by Tektronix which are available in these scopes;
Flexible trigger on data packets and arbitration conditions (I.e. SOF, ID, etc.) with ISO and non-ISO support
Protocol decoding with color coding of data along with data views
Support for both CAN and CAN FD (ISO and non ISO)
Search support for specific CAN FD data
Table listing with time stamps
Ability to store and export data
The new CAN FD protocol test solution for use with Tektronix mixed domain oscilloscopes is included with the MDO3AUTO, DPO4AUTO and DPO4AUTOMAX modules which also include CAN, LIN and Flexray (DPO4AUTOMAX) support. Pricing starts at US$1,100.
