Vector adds more test support in CANoe.CANopen 7.5
Compared to the full version, the more cost-effective “pex” and “run” software tool versions also let users generate tests for CANopen conformity.
Vector has significantly upgraded its “pex” and “run” versions of CANoe. Now users can check CANopen device functionality as well, which enables checks for CANopen conformity. All generation templates of the full version are provided. Users can create any number of test configurations. However, in contrast to the full version, only one CANopen device may be tested per test configuration.
Descriptions of CANoe.CANopen test groups and cases improve readability of the test report in all versions. This also simplifies any necessary troubleshooting considerably. The tool automatically creates descriptions for all test steps as users create test sequences with generation templates. After test execution, the descriptions are shown in the test report. The report’s HTML format gives users a quick summary of test results and makes it easy to archive results.
When generating test sequences, the SDO timeout value can now also be specified. Certain objects may be intentionally excluded from test generation, and hidden objects may be specified. It is also possible to define user-specific SDO error codes. This helps CANopen developers eliminate potential sources of error even before test generation, improving test effectiveness. During test execution, CANoe.CANopen can also generate a background bus load in accordance with CiA-TR-308.
