VX1161 Multi Base Module
Compact Measurement and Calibration Hardware for Multiple ECUs

A scalable solution with top performance, the VX1000 System is predestined for your ECU measurement and calibration tasks. It forms the interface between the ECU and a measurement and calibration tool CANape. The VX1000 System can be used in the vehicle cabin or engine bay, on test benches or in the lab. The VX1000 Base Module is connected to the PC via the standardized ASAM protocol XCP on Ethernet.

What is the VX1161 Multi Base Module?

The modular and individually configurable setup makes the VX1161 Multi Base Module the ideal solution for measurement and calibration of multiple ECUs in a network. Especially when developing ADAS applications, the VX1161 Multi Base Module allows you to capture raw data and XCP data from multiple high-resolution radar sensors and XCP data from ADAS fusion ECUs in a very compact setup.
The VX1161 Multi Base Module consists of the base chassis which can be populated with a combination of Interface Cards tailored to a particular measurement use case. The Base will always be equipped with a power supply card and a host uplink card providing the connection to the measurement PC. In addition six more slots are available, which can be populated with any mix of network, POD or streaming interface cards.
