Next Generation Instrumentation and Testing Software built from the .NET Framework 2005-01-1041

This paper discusses various aspects of Microsoft's newest programming framework and how the new technology that this framework provides is being used in next generation in-vehicle and lab automotive instrumentation. Included in this paper are challenges that in-vehicle and lab instrumentation software faces today and how the .NET technologies solve these challenges. Some of the technologies discussed in this paper include the C# language, .NET reflection, and application architecture.
The paper specifically focuses on a new CAN analysis tool that addresses, through the .NET technology, many of the challenges faced by bus analysis tools today. Some of these topics include:
  • Conformance to instrumentation and test system standards (e.g. ASAM).
  • Legacy system integration.
  • Customer specific needs that may be proprietary.
  • The many communication protocols that exist in the automotive area. Some of the protocols include CCP, XCP, KWP2000, J1939 and others.
This satisfies a need for localized custom feature development in a global marketplace.
