March 8, 2016: With dSPACE Release 2015-B, dSPACE extended its tool chain by adding the new DCI-CAN2. The DCI-CAN2 has the functionality of DCI-CAN1 (accessing CAN networks) and also supports access to CAN FD networks (FD = flexible data rate). The DCI-CAN2 transmits messages between CAN/CAN FD networks and the host PC via USB (universal serial bus). This makes it easy to capture measurement data in CAN and CAN FD networks from the PC. The result is a much higher data throughput during measurement tasks. The DCI-CAN2 furthermore makes it possible to visualize CAN FD bus communication in ControlDesk® Next Generation (also in the Bus Navigator), and to access electronic control units via CCP and XCP on CAN FD.
