Dear Reader,

Start the new year well informed with three event highlights. The hot topics Cybersecurity, Connectivity and Automotive Ethernet await you with full-day symposia from April 2nd to 4th in Stuttgart. We offer simultaneous translation into English and German.

Can one improve a tool that has been tried and tested for over 20 years? Vector can: the new Version 17.0 of CANape supports you in the optimal measurement and calibration of AUTOSAR ECUs, based on Classic and Adaptive standard. Also get your ADAS projects on the road faster with CANape.

We are pleased to inform you about another addition to our test portfolio: with the acquisition of TESIS GmbH from Munich, our range of test solutions for distributed systems now includes sophisticated simulation solutions for virtual road testing.

Enjoy reading!

Kind regards,
Your Vector Newsletter Editorial Team

Safety and Security

Save Your Seat at the 3rd Vector Cybersecurity Symposium in Stuttgart!

3rd Vector Cybersecurity Symposium in Stuttgart!

On April 3rd, 2019 you will experience news from the field of cybersecurity. Top-class speakers from Aptiv, BMW, Continental, Ford, Sysgo and the University of Stuttgart will report on current trends – from ISO 21434 to testing security-protected ECUs. Make sure you get your seat!

ECU Calibration

Measuring and Calibrating ECUs Optimally – Highlights of CANape 17.0

Measuring and Calibrating ECUs Optimally – Highlights of CANape 17.0

Whether AUTOSAR Classic or Adaptive, whether applications run on classic microcontrollers or in parallel integrated processors – with CANape 17.0 you can reach your goal faster when measuring and calibrating ECUs. ADAS sensors can now be integrated into CANape even better and more easily. Overview of all new features.

More News About ECU Calibration

New vCDM 6.6 – get your calibration data from the ECU directly into the database without tool change: with Option vCDM and CANape, teams work easily, reliably and without data conflicts on joint calibration projects. All advantages.

Measurement Technologies

Extended Measurement Technology for GL Data Loggers

Extended Measurement Technology for GL Data Loggers

The powerful GL data loggers are now able to synchronously record measurement signals with high measurement data rates in the vehicle: the EtherCAT® measurement modules from CSM precisely record various analog signals like pressure or mechanical strain. Vehicle measurement data can now be logged even more extensively. Read more about it.

Automotive Ethernet

Be There – 4th Vector Automotive Ethernet Symposium in Stuttgart!

4th Vector Automotive Ethernet Symposium in Stuttgart

Pure information about Automotive Ethernet will be available on April 2nd, 2019 in Stuttgart. Continental, Nvidia, NXP, Patac and the TÜV-Nord will present their experiences about a wide range of topics – from TC8 conformance testing to TSN. Sign up today!

Embedded Software and Systems/AUTOSAR

API of the MICROSAR Socket Adapter (SoAd BSD) Supports Operating System Integrity

API of the MICROSAR Socket Adapter (SoAd BSD) Supports Operating System Integrity

BSD socket in the MICROSAR socket adapter enables the use of an AUTOSAR Classic Ethernet stack on a POSIX-compliant OS. The Classic application is not connected to the network via the AUTOSAR driver, but uses the BSD sockets of the OS. In addition to Linux and QNX, MICROSAR SoAd BSD now also supports OS Integrity. Learn more.

More News About Embedded Software and Systems/AUTOSAR

Find out how to synchronize fault memories across controller boundaries with vDes as part of the AUTOSAR basic software MICROSAR. Go to case study.


Improved Testing with the New Network Interface VN1530

Improved Testing with the New Network Interface VN1530

We would like to introduce the successor of our CANboardXL: the new network interface VN1530. This 6-channel network interface for CAN and LIN satisfies the demand for an increasing number of channels for test purposes. Benefit from its complete functions for testing ECUs, sensors and gateways.


CANdelaStudio 11 – Save Time when Reusing Data Types

CANdelaStudio 11 - Save Time when Processing Data Types

When specifying diagnostic data, redundant and similar data types make reuse more difficult. CANdelaStudio 11 now provides a configurable wizard with which you can quickly compare data types, recognize redundancies and eliminate them. More optimizations in CANdelaStudio 11
