Issue Details

I am able to use XNET driver's properly for Communication Area Network (CAN) communication to DUT ( Device Under Test ) now want to migrate to CAN with Flexible Data-Rate (CAN FD), Is it possible to do using XNET ?

Solution

This can be done by following basic steps for modifying the CAN dbc ( CAN database file ) for working with CAN-FD with help of NI-XNET Data Bus Editor :
1.  Open NI-XNET Data Bus Editor.   
2.  Select "CAN Cluster" and specify the "I/O Mode" to " CAN FD"
3.  Specifying the "FD Baud rate" and "Baud rate" as per your application as shown in the below NI-XNET data base editor :


NI-XNET Bus Monitor needs to be configured with the same setting as mentioned above.
