Product information

FlexConfig SDK is a .NET library for the easy access of automotive bus/network systems in your own windows applications. The library supports a wide range of automotive database formats like AUTOSAR (*.arxml), FIBEX (*.xml) and CANdb (*.dbc).

FlexConfig SDK can be used in combination with the products of the FlexDevice-Family and the FlexCard-Family.

For the customers it is very easy to expand his own application for logging, test benches or HIL (Hardware in the Loop) systems with the complete functionality regarding automotive bus/network systems. With a wide range of supported devices it is possible to create very cost effective and perfectly tailored solutions for the special usecase.

The following functionality is supported by FlexConfig SDK:

  • Reading and interpretation of a wide range of automotive network description files - AUTOSAR (*.arxml), FIBEX (*.xml) and
    CANdb (*.dbc)
  • Supports wide range of devices from the FlexDevice or FlexCard family as a bus/network interface to the automotive bus system*
  • automatic configuration (plug'n'play) of the connected devices
  • automatic conversion of the received raw values into physical values based on the loaded automotive network description file
  • the .NET library provides a simple internal interface to the received and interpreted bus/network data
  • Sending of CAN-FD/HS messages

*device must be purchased separately

  • Nearly all available automotive network description formats are supported e.g. AUTOSAR (*.arxml), FIBEX (*.xml) and CANdb (*.dbc)
