CANalyzer .AFDX can be used efficiently for all needs related to startup and maintenance of AFDX® networks. Regardless of whether raw frames or payload contents are needed – CANalyzer .AFDX offers powerful analysis functions on all levels. Users quickly reach their goals and always have a clear picture of even complex network topologies.
Overview of Advantages
- Easy observation of the data traffic and comprehensive network analysis
- Flexible configuration of the measurement setup
- Analysis of multiple buses
- Access to CAN, AFDX® and digital or analog I/O with the one and the same tool
CANalyzer .AFDX utilizes optionally the VN5610A as USB interface or TTTech's PCI/PCIe variant AFDXEnd System T.
Symbolic Display via Databases
The AFDX® communication is described in ICD format. The aircraft manufacturer generally provides its suppliers with relevant description files. To ensure that this information is also usable in CANalyzer .AFDX, a converter is supplied that converts the ICD files into DBC files. The user adds these DBC files to a CANalyzer .AFDX configuration, which then enables access to symbolic information.
The current AFDX® message traffic is shown in the Trace window. If databases are available, the display is symbolic and is based on information from the converted ICD files. A Virtual Link is then no longer visualized numerically by its ID, but instead by its name. The display of columns is user configurable, and three pre-configurable column layouts are available for quick switchover. Refined search functions ensure that the user does not lose sight of key information among the large number of messages.
