Development & Test Tool CANoe.Ethernet

Developing, simulating and testing embedded systems with CAN and Ethernet

Ethernet and IP-based networks, as well as the application protocols which build upon them, are state of the art in the automotive field. Typical areas of use include control loops, assistance systems, backbones and multimedia. The need-based design of a network which takes bandwidths and real-time capacity into account, as well as the physical transmission layer used, play a main role when it comes to expenses. Therefore tools for checking the network parameters named earlier are extremely helpful in every phase of development.

With the .Ethernet option, you can expand CANoe to include support for Ethernet networks. The .Ethernet option makes possible the use of interface hardware such as the VN5600 series of interfaces. This enables direct access to physical layers such as IEEEĀ 100BASE-T1 (OABR) and IEEEĀ 1000BASE-T1, which are widely used in the automotive field. The .Ethernet option also expands CANoe to include specific protocols such as SOME/IP, SOME/IP-SD, IP, TCP, UDP, TSN/AVB and many more.

Overview of Advantages

  • The integration of a database (FIBEX, AUTOSAR ARXML etc.) enables direct access to signal, service and RPC parameters
  • Automatic generation of simulations (remaining bus simulation) based on databases
  • Perfect interaction with the interface hardware enables the monitoring of point-to-point connections and the transmission of Ethernet packets taking the network topology into consideration
  • Simulation and analysis of data traffic occurs without the interfering influence of the operating system on the communication layer
  • Processing of Ethernet packets and signals extracted from them in CAPL
  • Send out user-configured (even faulty) Ethernet packets configured with Ethernet Packet Builder
  • Cyclic sending and simple IPv4 socket communication with the Ethernet Interactive Generator
  • Programmable sending of packets in CAPL and in .NET
  • Simulation of TCP and UDP client sockets (IPv4 and IPv6) with independent instances for each CAPL node
  • Simulation of Ethernet nodes and gateways
  • Representation of all vehicle networks referenced to a common time base
  • Testing of gateway functionality by analyzing the communication on different bus systems
