VP6400 / VP7400
High-Performance, Compact Platforms for Smart Logger Applications in Vehicles

VP6400 / VP7400 – Platforms for Smart Logger Applications

VP6400 and VP7400 are powerful and robust hardware platforms, that are especially designed for time-synchronous recording of automotive bus messages, video streams, radar raw data and ECU-internal measurement data in parallel. With their high logging rates, they are suitable for ADAS projects.

Both, the VP6400 and VP7400 are available in different variants suited for different tasks and use cases. They can be delivered either as a Windows PC with pre-installed Vector tools or as a dedicated logging solution with CANape log or vMeasure log.

The VP6400 is suitable for simple ADAS applications and, in combination with the VN5240 Ethernet interface (release in Q4/2020), especially for logging Ethernet data. The same form factor makes these devices easily stackable. The VP7400 is used for logging complex ADAS applications with high data rates, ideally in combination with the VX1161 Multi Base Module.

Advantages

  • Continuous logging of measurement data rates of up to 500 Mbytes/s respectively up to 1 GByte/s
  • Compact and robust design – suitable for automotive use
  • Numerous interfaces for high data throughput, such as 10 Gbit/s Ethernet and USB 3.0/3.1
  • IEEE 1588 (PTP) time synchronization
  • Extended temperature range from -25 °C to +70 °C
  • Exchangeable storage cartridges with 4 TByte, respectively up to 16 TByte capacity
  • VP6400: Optional bus interfaces for CAN and LIN
  • VP7400: Optional PCIe slots Gen 3.0 x8

Functions and Applications

Smart Logger with CANape log or vMeasure log

When combined with CANape log or vMeasure log, VP6400 and VP7400 are high-performance stand-alone Smart Loggers. To configure the hardware, a PC with CANape or vMeasure exp is required. Existing CANape projects can be downloaded to VP6400/VP7400 in a quick and easy process. During logging the configuration PC is no longer needed. For monitoring measurements, a browser-based UI for mobile devices is available. Individual measurement signals as well as status information, such as the amount of remaining storage capacity, can be displayed in this interface, too.
