Issue Details

I need to be able to force communication issues, bad data, and/or checksum errors to ensure our own device properly handles and recovers from CAN issues. Can NI-XNET hardware do this?


Only the following faults for LIN are possible.  Other than these are currently not supported by NI-XNET including for CAN, FlexRay or Automotive Ethernet.

Any manipulation of the bits is technically possible but requires massive amount of effort in developing new firmware and driver. Please reach out to your regional sales representative if you would like this feature to be added in the future release of NI-XNET driver.
