CARcorder - Data logger for FlexRay and CAN

IXXAT presents on the Embedded World fair the first version of its new data logger for automotive communication systems

The CARcorder is available as Basic or Plus version. The Basic version provides already six CAN interfaces (ISO 11898-2 / 11898-3), two LIN and two RS232 interfaces, an USB host/device interface as well as an interface switchable between SAE J1850 and K/L-line. In addition, the device comes with digital and analog inputs and outputs each providing eight channels.
Furthermore, the Plus version of the CARcorder offers a FlexRay interface with two channels.

The two processor architecture of the CARcorder enables the fanless device to record all data synchronous and without any losses in real time and with a time stamp accuracy of 1 µs.

The device is delivered with a rugged aluminum case, an integrated UPS for up to 10 seconds of power cut and it has a power consumption of less than 10 mW in deep sleep mode. The wake up is initiated with the first valid message, which will be recorded also. The power supply can be made in a wide range between 6.5 and 40 V DC.
With the PC-based software tool, the device can be configured via Ethernet, a direct USB connection or an USB stick. The software also enables the user to define
trigger conditions and to set-up diagnostic tasks. The bus configuration is done by importing the related bus description files (CANdB, FIBEX, A2L, ODX, open XML).

Besides the CARcorder, IXXAT presents further products for the automotive area on the fair, like the Automotive Development Platform ATP, FlexRay/CAN interfaces, analysing tools and gateways.
