Virtual Terminal Interaction Layer
Besides its use for pure simulation, the VT Window or rather VT_IL can also be run passively in the network as a reference. In this case, the CANoe Virtual Terminal does not actively participate in CAN communication, rather it listens to the communication between an implement device and the real terminal. This makes it easy to reveal compatibility problems of the real VT quickly. In addition, the passive VT operating mode is well-suited to the analysis of previously recorded bus traffic. Problems in communication can be visualized immediately using the CANoe VT, simply by playing back a log file. This simplifies the time-consuming analysis of the CAN data traffic and its potential effects on the application level.
