The Universal EMC Device is a revolutionary testing equipment which can perform data logging and traffic generation under high electromagnetic radiations and without influencing your measurements.

 

Universal EMC Device is an ideal tool for testing the performance of newly developed devices under tough environmental conditions. With only one Fiber optic Ethernet connection, you will have access to all the automotive buses (LIN, CAN/CAN-FD, 100BASE-T1 and FlexRay). The device will automatically take care of the conversion between Gigabit Ethernet and the automotive standard buses, bidirectionally.

All these functions can be simply configured using the integrated website.

 

Capture Modules

Based on Technica's previous (March 2020) SPY family (100BASE-T1 SPY 12 Port and 1000BASE-T1 SPY Mini), these Capture Modules are a new generation of testing tool.

 

The Capture Modules are using the most advanced AD and V2X traffic tapping technology and solve the key challenges of today’s Automotive network traffic data logging and recording.  

All captured data is transferred via standard Ethernet network (Ethernet MAC frames on Layer 2) to a standard PC or a dedicated logger, if available. Complete solutions are already working on prototype test vehicles, both at OEMs and at Tier 1s.

A very flexible solution that captures all your data regardless of type (CAN, CAN-FD, Flexray, LIN, Ethernet 100BASE-T1 and 1000BASE-T1), also compatible with AVB/TSN.  It covers many use-cases without the need of a logger but, if available, you can reduce the number of uploaded links to the logger via “cascading” data to any combination of devices. If Capture Module 1000 High is present there's a 10 Gbit uplink.

The ANDi environment supports developers with the validation of their ECU functions by means of generated Residual bus (Restbus) simulations and intelligent message generators. It is the very first evaluation tool for the SOME/IP protocols.

Visualization and validation of Fibex and ARXML automotive databases are possible via the user-friendly ADELa (Automotive Database Edition and Layout) software. 


What is ANDi

ANDi

ANDi

ANDi is a test and simulation environment for Ethernet electronic control units (100BASE-T1 / 1000BASE-T1) and also for the CAN/CAN-FD, LIN and FlexRay bus systems.


The ANDi environment supports electronic control unit developers with the validation of their ECU functions by means of generated residual bus simulations and intelligent message generators. A traffic viewer with signal graph display and seamless support of automotive databases (Fibex, ARXML, DBC, LDF) make it ultimately flexible and practical.


Through the support of Technica Engineering and other hardware, as well as .net extensions, ANDi can be used as a powerful tool for complex ECU test and test automation.

ADELa

ADELa

ADELa is an automotive database edition tool that provides visulatization and validation features of Fibex and ARXML automotive databases, primatily for Automotive Ethernet but also for CAN.


The databases can then be used as soucers of residual bus simutations (RBS) or message generation and parsing in ANDi.

 

The tool is able to create and edit XML based data catalogues and definitions such as ASAM Fibex 4.1.1, CAN XML,ARXML and enhances the usage of this file format.
