CAN FD Support in the dSPACE Tool Chain

Published: November 12, 2014

To support the CAN FD protocol, the dSPACE product range has been extended in several areas as of dSPACE Release 2014-B. These extensions include new hardware and new features in various software products.

The new hardware module (DS4342 CAN FD Interface Module) can be used to upgrade dSPACE systems based on the DS1005, DS1006, DS1007 or MicroAutoBox II to support CAN FD. For SCALEXIO-based systems, CAN FD support is planned for 2015.

To ensure software support for CAN FD, the implementation software RTI CAN MultiMessage Blockset supports CAN FD. With it, dSPACE systems can be combined with CAN FD networks and are easy to configure. The Bus Navigator of the experiment software ControlDesk Next Generation also offers the possibility to manage CAN FD networks as of dSPACE Release 2014-B.
