CAN Bus Extension for impulse

Visualization and analysis of CAN data in Eclipse with CAN adapters

The German company toem GmbH, located in Solingen, has developed an extension for CAN, CAN FD, and SocketCAN for its Eclipse plugin impulse. Based on the integration of the PCAN-Basic API, all interfaces from PEAK-System are supported. Thanks to the impulse CANBus Extension, software developers can evaluate, display, and process CAN data from one or more CAN and CAN FD buses simultaneously within the Eclipse environment. Concretely, incoming and outgoing CAN messages can be displayed as analog and digital signals, value tables and diagrams. In addition, message content such as bits, integers, and texts can be extracted and recorded.

Furthermore, the creation of symbols or the import from symbol files of versions 5 and 6 is possible. Besides the determination of variables and filters, impulse also offers the possibility of scripting, for example, to send messages or to handle incoming messages in a user-defined way. Linux developers can compile the CAN bus connectivity themselves if required.

impulse serves software developers as a tool for visualization and analysis of complex semiconductor and multicore software systems as well as debugging tool. All components are fully integrated into the Eclipse eco-system (Windows, Linux, and OS X/macOS). The plugin is available for free on the Eclipse Marketplace. Licenses can be purchased from the provider for commercial purposes.
