CANoe Test Package VAG
CAN Conformance Tests for Volkswagen

Automated Execution of Extensive CAN Conformance Tests

During the development of an ECU it is necessary to perform extensive CAN/CAN FD conformance tests. The CANoe Test Package VAG creates a CANoe configuration for this purpose. The configuration includes test implementations according to the corresponding Volkswagen test specifications. The tests run fully automated and may be repeated at any time. Thus, the test effort is kept to a minimum.

Advantages

  • CANoe Test Package VAG is verified and recommended by Volkswagen AG
  • Test coverage corresponds to the requirements of Volkswagen AG for suppliers
  • Fast generation of the CANoe test environment
  • Automated test execution and report generation
  • Comfortable selection of the desired test cases
  • Unlimited repeatability of the test execution

Highlights Version 5.0

  • Automated tests additionally for CAN FD 
  • Test generation also with ARXML databases

Application Area

Fully automated CAN/CAN FD conformance tests according to Volkswagen test specifications - while keeping the test effort to a minimum.

Functions

  • Creation of a remaining network simulation and an XML test module based on specific input files
  • Full test automation enabled by a special test hardware
  • Automatic creation of reports and logging of CAN frames for a comprehensive documentation of the test results

Requirements

The Volkswagen OEMs distribute to their suppliers the below listed input files that are required for the generation of tests with the CANoe Test Package VAG:

  • TestBaseAdjustmentDocumentation (TBAD) for the ECU
  • CAN database (DBC or ARXML) for the network
  • Partial network description (VSDE) for the network (only for partial network operation)

There are 3 possible test setups with different test hardware. Which setup applies best depends mostly on the ECU’s current consumption but also on personal preferences (e.g. regarding cabling of the hardware):

Test setup for ECU current consumption < 2.5 ampere

1)  VH1160 based test setup for ECU current consumption <2.5 A:

  • VH1160 - Hardware for automation of ECU conformance testing 
  • VH6501 - CAN/CAN FD disturbance hardware and network interface for CANoe

 

2a)  Small VT System based test setup for ECU current consumption <70 A:

  • VT7001A – VT System's power module for automation of ECU conformance testing 
  • VH6501 - CAN/CAN FD disturbance hardware and network interface for CANoe
  •  Controllable power supply from third-party vendor

 

Full VT System based test setup for ECU current consumption < 70 ampere

2b)  Full VT System based test setup for ECU current consumption <70 A:

  • VT6011 – VT System's real-time module for executing the real-time part of CANoe
  • VT7001A – VT System's power module for automation of ECU conformance testing
  • VH6501 - CAN/CAN FD disturbance hardware and network interface for CANoe
  • Controllable power supply from third-party vendor

To perform the conformance tests a full version of CANoe (version 10.0 SP4 or higher) is required. Other required software is provided together with the test hardware or is free of charge (e.g. CANoe AddOn VAG Multibus Package).

Test Coverage

The CANoe Test Package VAG 5.0 offers an implementation of the following Volkswagen test specifications:

  • High Speed CAN

    • DUM.857.BE.1 (version 5.3)

  • Network Management High and Network Power Management

    • DUM.000.AC.A (version 2.7)
       

The test coverage is coordinated with Volkswagen.

Seamless Communication Tests in ECU Development for the Volkswagen Group

Automated tests with minimal effort for OEM and suppliers

In ECU development, the specific test implementations play a special role for suppliers of Volkswagen AG (VAG): they check for network conformity, assure smooth interplay of the numerous ECUs and are a key criterion for final acceptance by the automotive manufacturer. Using VAG-specific test software, developers and suppliers conduct automated tests according to VAG specifications DUM.857.BE.1 and DUM.000.AC.A for High-Speed CAN and Network ManagementHigh which ultimately saves a lot of time and expense.
