Release of CANopen Magic Lite Version - CANopen Monitor, Analyzer, And Simulator

Posted by Industry News on

Embedded Systems Academy EmSA CANopen Magic - Professional CANopen monitor, analyzer, simulator

In a cooperation with Peak-System, the Embedded Systems Academy (EmSA) has launched the Lite Version of their CANopen Magic monitoring and analyzing tool.

CANopen Magic is a versatile software tool to monitor, analyze, trace, configure, simulate and test CANopen and CANopen FD networks and devices. It contains functions for the entire lifetime of a CANopen network: from development and test to system integration and performance analysis. 

Use sophisticated trace filtering and node access to monitor, analyze and test all aspects of your network. Simulate nodes that are still under development.

While the other versions of this tool support multiple CAN interfaces, this entry-level utility works only with Peak CAN Bus hardware. Nevertheless, the software offers all basic features required to monitor a CANopen or CANopen FD network or to set the configuration of a device.

The symbolic trace shows all detailed information for SDO accesses: which object (by index and sub-index) at which node was addressed. Multiple read/write windows can be used to access objects in CANopen devices, for example to test a variety of configurations.

CANgineBerry - CANopen Module for Raspberry Pi

CANgineBerry - CANopen Module for Raspberry Pi

The CANgineBerry for CANopen is an active CAN co-processor module that uses a regular UART communication channel towards the host system. With its independent 32-bit microcontroller, the CANgineBerry can easily execute CAN protocols with tough timing demands such as CANcrypt or CANopen with response times of under 10 ms.

Depending on the configuration, the CAN communication can be up and running within 50 ms after power-on, even if the host system takes significantly longer to boot.

Available firmware options at launch include a generic minimal CANopen Manager/Controller and a CANopenIA Device both based on the CANopenIA implementation. Within the next weeks we will also release a CANcrypt version of the popular Lawicel protocol (SLCAN).
