dSPACE has supported the CAN FD communication protocol since 2014. It is now completely integrated in the dSPACE software and hardware tool chain. Rapid control prototyping systems, such as MicroAutoBox II, communicate via CAN FD during the initial function validation in the lab or the vehicle. SCALEXIO does the same when executing hardware-in-the-loop tests for ECU communication. Software-configurable support of ISO CAN FD and non-ISO CAN FD has been available since 2015, and recently features for wake-up and sleep functions as well as partial networking were added. To configure CAN FD communication, you can use the Bus Manager or the implementation software Real-Time Interface (RTI). The experiment software ControlDesk makes it possible to monitor and modify the real-time communication.
