SAE J1939 Protocol Software
Software Package for the Development of J1939 Devices
The SAE J1939 protocol software enables the quick and simple development of SAE J1939 devices. All communication mechanisms defined in the SAE J1939 specification (except for the bridge functionality) are available, which means that developers can fully concentrate on their application.
As the user interface is designed as a universal functional interface, the protocol software is simultaneously the basis for extensions such as NMEA 2000 or ISO 11783 (ISOBUS).
The J1939 protocol software is implemented in ANSI-C and is independent of the CAN controller, CPU and operating system (where available). It is adapted to the hardware via the CAN driver package, which is required in addition.
Two versions of the SAE J1939 protocol software are available:
The “single channel” version allows dynamic configuration of the SAE J1939 protocol software via the functional interface and therefore during runtime. This version supports one software instance (CAN channel) and is suitable for use with a real-time operating system. However, the software can also be used in an application without an operating system. Requirement for the purchase of the J1939 protocol software is the purchase of the IXXAT J1939 CAN driver (1.02.0350.00TTT) version 1.01 or later.
The “multi-channel” version supports several software instances (CAN channels) and several applications on one CAN channel. In addition, this version can be extended with optional packages for NMEA2000 and ISO15765-2 diagnostics. The other features are identical to those of the single channel version. Requirement for the purchase of the J1939 protocol software is the purchase of the IXXAT J1939 CAN driver (1.02.0350.00TTT) version 1.01 or later.
