The XL-Driver-Library supports both the MOST node and the Spy functions of the Vector MOST interfaces. The node functions allow the hardware to be operated as a complete node on the ring. It can receive messages and packets addressed to it, as well as send out its own messages to other nodes on the ring. Access to OS8104 registers is also possible.
The XL-Driver-Library’s MOST Spy functions are needed to record all messages and packets on the ring. These functions must be enabled by a separately purchased “MOST Analysis Library” license or the .MOST Option for CANoe or CANalyzer. The node functions, however, are provided free of charge.
