The original CAN specification defined in the ISO 11898 standard limited communication speeds to 1 Mb/sec. CAN FD solves the bandwidth limitation problem by allowing faster bit rates and increases payload size from 8 Bytes to 64 Bytes. With the faster speeds and increased complexity come new test and measurement challenges. The new Tektronix CAN FD solution gives automotive engineers working with this protocol a powerful debugging and validation tool to quickly and efficiently validate and troubleshoot designs with full visibility into actual bus traffic.
CAN FD (MDO3AUTO, DPO4AUTO, DPO4AUTOMAX) software is a complete protocol trigger; software capabilities include:
Flexible trigger on data packets and arbitration conditions (I.e. SOF, ID, etc.) with ISO and non-ISO support
Protocol decoding with colour 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 MDO3000 is a 6-in-1 integrated oscilloscope with an integrated spectrum analyzer, arbitrary function generator, logic analyzer, protocol analyzer, and digital voltmeter/counter. The MDO3000 is completely customizable and fully upgradeable as needs change. The MDO4000C also offers 6-in-1 versatility and upgrade flexibility together with higher performance and powerful triggering, search and analysis tools.
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 $1,100.
