Driver Software for DIAdem

DIAdem is a commercial software package for use on standard desktop PCs and laptops. It can be used wherever measurement and analysis data accumulates. The CAN-Driver particularly for DIAdem allows you to record CAN signals with DIAdem that are defined in a Vector CAN database (CANdb++).

The following CAN hardware interfaces are supported:

  • CANcardXL / CANcardXLe
  • CANcaseXL / CANcaseXL log
  • CANboardXL Interface familiy
  • VN1600 Interface family
  • VN5610
  • VN7570
  • VN7600
  • VN8900 Interface family


The CAN Driver for DIAdem accesses the CAN signals exclusively via symbolic names. The CAN raw data is converted automatically into physical values using conversion rules from the database (CANdb++). If the CAN bus configuration is changed (for example bit position, conversion rule) all that is required is to edit the database. The references in the DIAdem measurement structure can be updated automatically.

The CAN Driver for DIAdem supports also the J1939 protocol (mixed mode J1939 and extended CAN IDs) as well as NMEA2000 and ISOBUS (ISO11783).

Application Areas

The CAN Driver for DIAdem can be used in all phases of the development and production of vehicles, where measurement data accumulates that must be analyzed and compared and presented together with the results in meaningful reports.

The CAN Driver for DIAdem supports the simultaneous use of up to 30 CAN channels. Other Vector CAN tools and applications that have been created with the Vector XL-Driver-Library can be used at the same time and on the same channels.

In addition, virtual CAN channels are available for tests without hardware. Send messages can also be measured.
