VN7640
Flexible Connection to CAN FD, LIN, FlexRay and Ethernet

VN7640 - FlexRay/CAN FD/LIN/Ethernet Interface for USB or Ethernet

The VN7640 interface is a flexible solution for FlexRay, CAN FD, LIN, K-Line and J1708 applications. Additionally, different use cases are supported for Ethernet.

Due to the various channel combinations the VN7640 is an ideal interface for laboratory or developer workstation. Because of its compact and robust design, it is also suitable for mobile applications.

Advantages

  • Variety of channel combinations possible by simply interchangeable transceivers for different bus physics
  • Updating of functional range by FPGA update possible
  • Optimum performance for CANoe/CANape/CANalyzer applications with CAN, CAN FD, FlexRay, LIN, J1708, and K-Line bus access
  • Support of Ethernet applications, e.g. DoIP or measurement / calibration via XCP on Ethernet
  • Analog/digital IO functionality
  • Connection for external time synchronization
  • Accurate time analysis of the communication data
  • Robust housing

Application Areas

  • Remaining bus simulation, gateway application, analysis and testing of networks and ECUs in combination with the bus systems CAN FD, LIN (K-Line), and FlexRay
  • Diagnostics (including Diagnostics over IP) and flashing of ECUs
  • Measurement and calibration of ECUs via XCP (XCP on FlexRay, XCP on CAN, XCP on Ethernet)

In addition, the included libraries allow the user to create own applications quickly and easily.

Functions

CAN/LIN

  • Support of CAN FD up to 8 MBit/s
  • Fast CAN flashing through hardware-based flash sequence support
  • Extended LIN stress functions, e.g. for LIN 2.1 confor-mance tests

FlexRay

  • Detection of invalid frames
  • Cycle multiplexing
  • In-cycle response
  • Support of PDUs
  • FlexRay gateway (channel A)
  • Startup + asynchronous monitoring allows detection of FlexRay frames and symbols, even before the communication controller has synchronized itself to the bus

Ethernet

  • Diagnostic communication via Internet protocol (DoIP, ISO 13400-3) incl. DoIP ActivationLine and WakeUpLine
  • Direct connection of Vector measurment and calibration hardware (xPODs or VX device)
  • Ethernet port as host interface to PC

General

  • Synchronization with several devices and other bus systems (e.g. CAN FD, FlexRay, LIN, J1708)
  • CAPL-on-Board for CAN FD, FlexRay, LIN, IO
