ECI driver for QNX, INtime, RTX and Linux

With the current ECI driver IXXAT offers a powerful programming interface for its CAN PC interfaces, specially adapted to the requirements of embedded applications. CAN-based control and test systems can easily and quickly be achieved, both in the industrial and automotive area.

The latest version of the ECI (Embedded Communication Interface) is available for the operating systems QNX (6.5.0), INtime (3.14, 4.2, 5.0), RTX (6.5.1, 8.1.2, 2012) as well as for Linux.

The driver is available free of charge for IXXAT interfaces and provides a common application interface which enables the easy exchange of the user interface without adaptation of the software application. Supported interface types are ranging from mobile usable USB-to-CAN interfaces up to flexible extendable interfaces for PCIe, PCIe Mini, PCIe 104, PCI and PMC. Several interfaces and CAN channels (11/29 bit identifier) can be used simultaneously. For the automotive industry the low-speed CAN and LIN channels of the interfaces are supported.

The common application interface applies for all supported operating systems, so the user can, besides changing the type of interface, easily switch to another operating system.

All mechanisms required for an easy operation of the IXXAT CAN interfaces are provided by the ECI driver. Furthermore, the new ECI release was accomplished by the two new functions 'single-shot mode" (single transmission without automatic repeat at lost arbitration) and" high priority messaging" (prioritized transmission, before other messages which are already in the transmission queue), which are often required in test systems.
In addition to the ECI, IXXAT also offers with the VCI an optimized driver for Windows-based applications.
