Develop and Test Software with CANoe4SW

Novi, MICHIGAN, 01-06-2021 – Vector introduces CANoe4SW – a tool for the development, test, and analysis of software in cyber physical systems. CANoe4SW supports software developers and testers in all markets throughout the entire development process of distributed systems and IoT devices. In virtual execution environments on the PC, in virtual machines or in the cloud, the user achieves high-quality software at an early stage of development for any target operating system based on Windows or Linux. 

CANoe4SW provides developers with a comprehensive tool for development, test, and analysis of software in cyber physical systems. It is not important whether the software to be tested is a single software component, a subsystem or the entire distributed system. Software developers and testers in all markets, e.g. medical, railway, automotive, use CANoe4SW along the entire development process of distributed systems and IoT devices. Virtual execution environments on the computer, in virtual machines, or in the cloud enable software to be tested for any target operating system based on Windows or Linux, e.g. Ubuntu, CentOS, SUSE. 

CANoe4SW allows easy access to the System Under Test by its functional system interfaces at a pure software level. Testers can perform early “black-box” SIL testing independently of hardware availability. CANoe4SW integrates seamlessly in CI/CT environments. Furthermore, the support of connectivity protocols such as MQTT provides access to IoT devices and back end software running in the cloud.

Interactive development and test as well as simple automated testing helps to ensure quality of distributed systems. CANoe4SW supports testing at an early stage of the development process by using virtual execution environments, thereby significantly increasing the quality of the developed software. Complex systems become manageable by isolating individual components using models for the physical and software environments. Software developers use CANoe4SW to stimulate and monitor values over time, thereby also addressing dynamic aspects of the software under test. Advantage: Users simulate error scenarios that would be difficult to implement in real environments, e.g. downtimes of cloud services. In contrast to debugging on the target, the virtual execution environments provide the user with more options for error detection in his development environment. The independence of hardware and other software components also enables the use of CI/CT environments from the very beginning. 

CANoe4SW is the right tool for monitoring fully integrated software components using models to simulate the physical environment and software environment. In addition to interactive development and testing, automated testing is a key feature of CANoe4SW.

Overcoming Signal Integrity Challenges of 112G Connections on PCB

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

One big challenge with 112G SerDes is handling signal integrity (SI) issues. By the time the signal winds its way from the transmitter on one chip to packages, across traces on PCBs, through connectors or cables, and arrives at the receiver, the signal is very distorted, making it a challenge to recover the clock and data-bits of the information being transferred. Learn how to handle SI issues and ensure that data is faithfully transmitted with a very low bit error rate (BER).

Transforming 400V Power for SELV Systems

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Vicor

Converting from distribution-friendly voltages like 400V down to locally-useful voltages can be a tough engineering challenge. In SELV systems, many teams turn to BCM converter modules because of their efficiency, form factor, and ease of design-in. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Ian Masza of Vicor about transforming 400V into power for SELV systems.
