Data Communications Software enables SAE J1939 applications on PC.

Press Release Summary:




Based on VCI CAN driver, SAE J1939 API supports all CAN interfaces from IXXAT and is available for C/C++ and Phyton programming languages. Several applications can be implemented accessing one CAN interface, including capability to communicate with each other. This allows simulation of entire SAE J1939 networks on one PC, making it suited for test and commissioning of control devices.



Original Press Release:



SAE J1939 API for Microsoft Windows XP/Vista



With the new SAE J1939 API IXXAT offers the J1939 protocol software with a comfortable programming interface as a DLL for Windows XP/Vista and allows herewith the easy implementation of SAE J1939 applications on the PC. It is based on the VCI CAN driver and thereby supports all CAN interfaces form IXXAT.

The 1939 API is currently available for the programming languages C/C++ and Phyton. Support of the .NET framework is in preparation.

Based on the programming interface several applications can be implemented accessing one CAN interface including the capability to communicate with each other. This allows the simulation of entire SAE J1939 networks on one PC and is thereby ideally suited for test and commissioning of control devices.

The interpretation of the signals transmitted within the messages (Parameter Groups) is based on a message catalog with standard messages and can be extended by the definition of application specific messages, if required.

Further information about the SAE J1939 API is available on the IXXAT webpage ixxat.com
