A2L Description Files
Use A2L (ASAP2) description files to communicate with ECUs over XCP protocol from MATLAB or Simulink. These files contain information about memory address, data type, and rules for converting stored values into physical units, simplifying calibration and measurement tasks.
Use virtual CAN and CAN FD channels to simulate network communications in a loopback configuration without physical hardware. Use MathWorks virtual channels or those from third-party vendors like Vector and Kvaser.
Vector CAN Database Files
Associate Vector CAN database files (DBC) with CAN channels or messages in MATLAB or Simulink to decode and encode CAN messages using application-specific names and scaled engineering units. Use CAN Pack and CAN Unpack blocks in Simulink to encode and decode CAN messages defined in ARXML files.
