Automotive ECU Development With ARM Cortex Processor Supporting Up To Eight CAN FD Interfaces

Posted by Industry News on

PLS Development Tools - Universal Debug Engine UDE and Microcontroller Debugger

The UDE (Universal Debugging Engine) by PLS (Germany) provides debugging and analysis functions for NXP’s S32S247 and i.MX RT MCUs with up to eight CAN FD (Flexible Data Rate) interfaces.

The S32S247 multi-core controller combines four 800-MHz Cortex-R52 processors with 64-MiB integrated flash memory. Designed for safety-related real-time applications up to ASIL-D (automotive safety integrity level), the device is suitable for various control domains, e.g., in hybrid and electric vehicles and the field of autonomous driving. The 1-GHz i.MX RT Arm Cortex-M7 processors also fit applications such as the Internet of Things (IoT), consumer electronics, industrial electronics, and automotive engineering.

UDE’s user interface for debugging and testing allows for an uncomplicated changeover from an existing micro-controller architecture to NXP components. Scripting support provides automated debugging and testing. However, the UDE is independent of a specific scripting language. Due to the use of Microsoft COM technology for engine’s software API (Application Programming Interface), developers can use their favored scripting language such as Python, Perl, Javascript, or others.

SAE J1939 Starter Kit And Network Simulator

SAE J1939 Starter Kit And Network Simulator

Our JCOM.J1939 Starter Kit And Network Simulator is designed to allow the experienced engineer as well as the beginner to experiment with SAE J1939 data communication without the need of connecting to a real-world J1939 network, i.e. a diesel engine. It may sound obvious, but in order to establish a network, you need at least two nodes, and that fact applies especially to CAN/J1939 where the CAN controller will basically shut down after transmitting data without receiving a response. For that reason, our jCOM.J1939 Starter Kit And Network Simulator consists of two J1939 nodes, namely our jCOM.J1939.USB, an SAE J1939 ECU Simulator Board With USB Port.

The jCOM.J1939.USB gateway board is a high-performance, low-latency vehicle network adapter for SAE J1939 applications. The board supports the full SAE J1939 protocol according to J1939/81 Network Management (Address Claiming) and J1939/21 Transport Protocol (TP).
