External voltage
supply
An external voltage supply is possible via pin 9 at the D-SUB9 connector. The under
voltage error detection of the transceiver is not possible in this case. This applies to
both VBatt and VCC.
Split termination
The concept of split termination is depicted in Figure 8. In normal mode, this
terminates the common mode signals via a capacitor to ground at the center tap point
of the two 60 Ohm resistors. This is an attempt to achieve a kind of stabilization of the
recessive bus voltage of approx. 2.5 V. In all other modes, pin 4 is high impedance,
and therefore the split termination is deactivated. The recommended capacitance
value of capacitor CSplit is 4.7 nF.
The series resistance in the split line that is recommended for some applications is
not needed here, since a lost ground may be caused only by a defect in the
CANcab/CANpiggy.

results in cross currents between the CAN nodes via the terminating resistors. In
sleep mode, this can lead to false readings when measuring supply currents.

LIN
4.4.1 General Information
Properties
The LINcab/LINpiggy conforms to the LIN standard (Local Interconnect Network) and
is specified for transmission rates of up to 20 kbit/s in normal mode as well as
115 kbit/s in flash mode.
The LIN bus communicates over a single-wire bus and is based on a master-slave
concept. Consequently, no arbitration or collision management is needed in the slave
nodes.
LIN communication principle:
 The LIN master generates the message header and places it on the bus. The
message header consists of the sync break, sync field and ID field.
 The addressed LIN slave node places its message response on the bus after the
message header. The message response is composed of 0...7 data bytes, and a
checksum field.
 The individual bytes of a message are transmitted according to the conventional
UART protocol (1 start bit, 8 data bits, and 1 stop bit).
Bus level
The following figure depicts the voltage levels on the LIN bus. VBatt is the supply
voltage of the ECU that is LIN master. The bus voltage can be changed to the
recessive case (VSup) by means of filter elements and dynamic voltage changes in the
supply voltage of the master ECU.
Bus-side
voltage supply
Since the recessive level on the bus depends on the supply voltage of the master, it is
advisable to operate the LINcab/LINpiggy with an external supply voltage that is also
used by the other bus nodes. This prevents cross currents between the individual
nodes on the LIN bus.
Connecting pin 4 (Pdis) with pin 3 (VB-) of the D-SUB of the network interface
disables the internal voltage supply of the LINcab/LINpiggy. This makes it possible to
perform measurements on the LIN bus, even with an external supply below 12 V.

Version 4.1

Transceiver – Technical Data
Manual
Note: If an external master resistor and an external voltage supply are being used at
the D-SUB9 connector of the LINcab/LINpiggy, a diode should be connected in series
(see figure below). The LINcab/LINpiggy will be supplied by the LIN bus over the
external master resistor, if the external voltage supply is broken. This damping diode
is necessary according to the LIN specification.

Galvanic isolation
With this transceiver, the network interface is electrically isolated from the LIN bus.
The transceivers’ voltage supply is electrically isolated via a DC/DC converter.
Properties
The 7269mag transceiver is designed for 24 V applications. In addition, it has a time
out counter, which avoids a constant dominant level on the LIN bus in error cases.
The minimum switch off time of the transceiver is 6 ms.
Stress functionality
The stress functionality of the LINcab/TWINcab and LINpiggy enables you to disturb
the LIN bus by dominant or recessive disturbing bits. The disturbing bits can be any
length.
Note: Recessive disturbing sequences have no current limitation, but dominant
disturbing bits are protected by a 100 mA fuse.
In case of dominant disturbing bits the LINcab/TWINcab/LINpiggy 7269mag has a
protection against thermal overloads. The LINcab/TWINcab/LINpiggy must be
externally supplied to use recessive disturbing mode.

Version 4.1
- 49 -
Transceiver – Technical Data
Manual
Minimal baudrate
Due to the dominant timeout (6…20 ms) of the TLE7269, it may not be possible to
transmit a LIN header at baudrates below 5 kbit/s with the maximum break-field of 30
bits (minimum 13 bits):
Baudrate = [1/(minimal Timeout [ms]/Break-Field-Length [bit]] * 1000
Baudrate = [1/( 6 ms/30 bit)] * 1000
Baudrate = 5000 bits/seconds
Therefore dominant sequences longer than 6 ms (e. g. for LIN headers below 5 kbit/s)
are created using the LINcab's/LINpiggy's integrated transistor circuitry.
Flash mode
The flash mode enables higher data transmission rates which can be used for
programming microcontrollers during the ECU production. This is possible by an
increased slew rate of the transceiver, which may also affect EMC properties.

To establish communications between the individual network nodes, VB+ has to be

If the Single Wire CANcab/CANpiggy is operated in a high-speed network, a

(CAN High) is connected to pin 4 (R100).
The resistor is disabled, if the CANcab/CANpiggy switches back to normal mode. To
implement higher impedance terminating resistances, another resistor (RR) may also
be added instead of a direct connection between CAN High and R100. The total

The Single Wire CAN transceiver supports normal mode, high-speed mode and sleep
mode.
Switching the transceiver modes is either done by the
xlCANSetChannelTransceiver function of the XL Driver Library or by the CAPL
function setCanCabsMode. Regarding this function it should be noted that the
channel number used by CANalyzer or CANoe is the logical channel number.
Furthermore, it is not possible to set the mode explicitly for one channel while
preserving the mode of the other channel; modes must always be set for both
channels.

For normal data exchange, normal mode is used with a transmission rate of up to
40 kbit/s. The high-speed mode is available for transmission rates up to 100 kbit/s, for
example for flash programming. However, in this mode the number of bus nodes is
limited. The high-voltage mode is needed to send the high-voltage wakeup message
(12 V). The transceiver’s transmitter is deactivated in sleep mode. Additionally, there
is a high priority flag which clears all send buffers.
Example: Example of a CAPL program for sending a high-voltage wakeup message

Introduction
System requirements The IOcab can be connected to the CANcardXL or to the CANcardXLe only. Other
interface cards are not supported.
The IOcab is supported by:
 CANoe Version 5.0 SP2 or higher
 CANape Version 5.0 SP2 or higher
 XL Driver Library 5.0 or higher
Functional
description
The IOcab 8444opto was specifically developed for measurement and control
applications in the CAN, LIN and MOST environments. It is used in automotive
development applications and in industrial automation and related areas.
The IOcab offers these features:
 8x digital inputs
 4x digital outputs
 4x analog inputs
 4x analog outputs
 1x analog comparator
 1x PWM (pulse width modulation) output
 2x Capture inputs (only one input can be used at the same time)
as well as
 highly-precise acquisition and stimulation over all inputs and outputs
 synchronization of CAN, LIN, MOST, and FlexRay messages.
The time stamp generated at each measurement point makes it possible to achieve
precise time correlation between a measurement point and messages on different
bus systems.
Electrical isolation has been integrated in the IOcab to protect the connected computer and to avoid measurement errors. This decoupling method electrically isolates
the PC from all signals of the D-SUB15 connector. However, there is no electrical isolation between the various signals of the D-SUB15 connector. The shielding (shell of
the D-SUB15 socket) is connected to PC ground.
Connectors and
pin assignments
The IOcab is connected to the PC with a CANcardXL/XLe via a 15-pin flat-cable
connector. The user can access the digital and analog inputs and outputs of the
IOcab via the 15-pin D-SUB connector.
The pin assignment of the D-SUB15 plug connector is as follows:

Digital Inputs and Outputs
Implementation
The digital outputs are implemented in the IOcab by semiconductor switches, which
can interconnect two D-SUB15 plug connector pins. This allows the user to connect
both Vcc (high-side switches) and GND (low-side switches).
Info: The digital outputs themselves cannot supply any power; rather they only switch
a voltage that has been externally applied. The internal protective circuitry of the
digital outputs only protects the circuit from electrostatic discharge.
When connecting inductive loads, the IOcab must be externally protected from high
inductive voltages (e. g. free-wheeling diodes) to prevent damage. Continuous short
circuiting of multiple digital outputs results in a risk of thermal overload.
Circuit
interconnections
In this arrangement the digital inputs and outputs utilize the same IO pins on the
D-SUB15 plug connector. Figure 15 shows their circuit interconnections:
Circuit diagram of
digital inputs and
outputs
Figure 15: Digital inputs and outputs
Trigger events
With this circuit, when a digital output is used and the internal output switch is closed,
two digital input or output lines are always shorted together. Nevertheless, all digital
inputs are read-back capable, whereby for example precise switching time points can
be defined by the trigger functionality of the inputs.
The voltages at DIN0…DIN7 always reference DGND and can be read by the user in
response to a trigger event, cyclically or by polling.

5.2.1 Important Notes on Real Time Capability of Digital Outputs
Switching delays of
photo MOS relays
The IOcab 8444opto possesses at the digital outputs photo MOS relays and is not
capable for real time applications (e. g. serial communication) due to their switching
on and off delays. The following example explains these facts.
Asymmetrical output
Figure 16 shows a possible scenario where the digital output is controlled by an
application (e. g. CANoe). The times for pulse high and pulse low are symmetrically
each with 50 ms (20 Hz). The switching-on delay t1 of the photo MOS relay in this
example is approx. 870 µs, but the switching-off delay t2 is only 460 µs. This
causes a shorter pulse high time than pulse low. The digital output is asymmetrical.
Pulse offset at the
digital output
Figure 16: Pulse offset
Latencies
Besides the named delays, additional latencies could occur during the communication
between the application and IOcab firmware. Each command is acknowledged inside
the IOcab. Afterwards, the IOcab firmware passes the next available command to the
digital output. If the acknowledgement is missing, all incoming commands are rejected except the last one, which is buffered in a special register. When the missing
acknowledgement is received, the last buffered state is written to the digital output
(see Figure 17).
Info: Too fast command sequences may not be properly handled, so that complete
pulses could be lost on the digital output (see Figure 17).
To avoid missing pulses, we recommend a maximum switching frequency of 20 Hz.
Switching frequencies above 20 Hz could cause sporadic or frequently pulse losses.
This behaviour is affected due the chosen PC configuration, the operating system and
the PC load respectively.
Section 5.4 Digital PWM Output / Capture Inputs explains a way how to generate a
PWM directly with the IOcab.

Analog Inputs and Outputs
Analog pins
All functions of the analog inputs and outputs AIO0…AIO3 of the IOcab 8444opto
share four pins of the D-SUB15 connector. For each of the four analog pins, there is
an output driver that can be activated or deactivated. If the output driver of an analog
pin is deactivated, an external applied voltage can be measured over the associated
analog inputs. If the output driver of an analog pin has been activated, it drives the
voltage configured for the output. To protect the output driver, a diode was placed in
series with it which isolates the driver from an external applied voltage. The voltage
drop of the diode is compensated by the output driver. However, it is not possible for
the output to draw a current in this way.
Although the outputs are protected against short circuit, the IOcab 8444opto can skip
into an internal error state. After the short circuits have been corrected, the IOcab
must be reinitialized.
Info: The analog output driver can be destroyed in input or output mode if a negative
voltage is applied to AIO0…AIO3 (VAIO0…VAIO3 < VAGND) and must be avoided!
Measurement ranges Two measurement ranges, H(igh) and L(ow), are available at AIO0 and AIO1 for the
measurement of voltages. In the L measurement range voltages from 0 to 8.192 Volt
can be measured and in the H measurement range voltages from 0 to 32.768 Volt.
AIO2 and AIO3 may only be used with the H measurement range. Measurement
ranges are selected during configuration. It is not possible to measure the voltage of
an analog pin in both measurement ranges simultaneously.
Conversion of an analog input signal takes approx. 44 µs. Since conversion of all activated analog inputs is sequentially performed, a delay is associated with the conversion that depends on the number of activated channels. The time stamp of a measurement always references the time point of the trigger event or measurement start

Comparator
AIO3 also has the option of initiating a measurement, in parallel to a running measurement, by means of an internal analog comparator that triggers when an upper
and/or lower configurable trigger threshold has been exceeded.
The comparator’s output value can also be polled by the application while the comparator function is activated.
The measurement of voltage changes always involves a delay when using the analog
input circuitry. This also applies to the analog comparator. The jump delay can be
calculated by the following formula:

Digital PWM Output / Capture Inputs
General notes
D-SUB15 pin 5 (DPWM) can be used to generate pulse width modulated signals. As
an alternative either this pin (DPWM) or pin 10 (DIO4) can be used to measure frequencies (capture mode), whereby the two Capture Inputs differ from one another in
their thresholds and voltage ranges. The required function and channel are selected
in the configuration. It is not possible to use both the PWM and capture mode and
both Capture Inputs simultaneously. At a pin only one mode is selectable at a time.

generator
The IOcab 8444opto can be used for PWM or frequency generator, which generates
frequencies from 40 Hz to 500 Hz and from 2.4 kHz to 100 kHz. The maximum
frequency is essentially limited by the pin’s output protection circuit.
The pulse width may be set between 0.0 % and 100.0 %. The resolution of the pulse
width depends on the frequency; this dependency is shown in the following graph:

IOcab 8444opto
Capture mode
In capture mode both the pulse and pause times of a signal can be simultaneously
determined for a signal at the DPWM pin or DIO4 pin of the D-SUB15 connector. One
of the three possible measurement ranges must be selected before measurement.
Pulse and pause times between 5 μs and 50 ms can be measured over the Capture
Inputs. This corresponds to a maximum input frequency of 100 kHz at a pulse width
of 50 %.
Info: If the IOcab is used in capture mode even if there is no signal connected to the
capture input, the capture measurement is cancelled by a timeout after 500 ms. In
this period of time no other measurement is executed.

Data Logging
Trigger, polling and
cyclic measurement
All measurements can be initiated by three different events:
 measurement on trigger,
 measurement on polling or
 cyclic measurement.
However, only one of the methods listed above may be configured for a specific
measurement. One of the following two events may be enabled in the configuration
and used as the trigger source:
 level change (HL and LH) at DIO0 - DIO3
 triggering of the analog comparator
“Measurement on polling“ represents a polling procedure in which a measurement is
not initiated until a request for measurement is received from the application. Then
the requested data are polled and transferred.
With cyclic measurement interval times between 1 ms and 65 seconds may be used.
If this time expires the required signals are automatically measured and transferred to
the application.

IOpiggy 8642
General Information
Introduction
The IOpiggy 8642 is a plug-in board (Piggyback) that was specially developed for
slide-in modules of the VN8900 interface family. It is ideal for measurements and
outputs of digital or analog signals.
This plug-in board can be used with the following slide-in modules:
 VN8950 CAN/LIN modules
Measurement lines accessible on channel 5 via D-SUB15 connector.
 VN8970 FlexRay/CAN/LIN modules
Measurement lines accessible on channel 9 via D-SUB15 connector.
Signal lines
The IOpiggy 8642 offers a total of thirteen signal lines. Depending on the
configuration, the maximum selectable IO lines are:
 8x digital inputs
 6x digital outputs
 4x analog inputs
 2x analog outputs
 2x PWM outputs
 1x PWM input
 1x analog comparator
Note: The lines may be operated as either input or output. Mixed operation of one
line is not possible. Mixed configuration of different lines is allowed.
The configuration is performed in your measurement application (e. g. CANoe). You
can define your own measurement condition there for each defined measurement
group. When a condition is fulfilled, the related signal values of the measurement
group are acquired and passed to the application.

Digital Inputs/Outputs
Description
All digital signal lines can be used as either an input or output. This can be configured
in the measurement application (e. g. CANoe). The following diagram illustrates the
switching logic:
Switching logic for
digital signals
Inputs
The switching threshold can be defined over a range of 0 V … 20 V for all eight digital
inputs (Digital In 0…7) with a constant hysteresis of 1 V.
Outputs
You can operate the digital outputs in three different modes. They are configured in
your measurement application.
 Push-Pull (only Digital Out 0…3)
The LOW state corresponds to digital GND, and the HIGH state corresponds to
the internal output voltage defined (by software). To prevent short circuits, you
should never interconnect two push-pull outputs. Since the push driver loads the
internal supply, the push output delivers less current than the pull input can take.
 Open-Collector (only Digital Out 0…3)
The LOW state corresponds to digital GND, and the HIGH state corresponds to
the external voltage applied via a pull-up resistor. The current rating of the OpenCollector output is higher than that of the Push-Pull outputs.
 MOS switch (only Digital Out 4a/4b and 5a/5b)
Floating switch for switching external signals. The signals to be switched are
connected to the a/b lines provided. Suitable for all signals between 0 V and 36 V.

Manual
IOpiggy 8642
Note: The digital outputs 4a/4b and 5a/5b of the IOpiggy 8642 are realized as
switching outputs through photo-MOS relays. The relays have an activation delay of
550 µs and a deactivation delay of 100 µs at 25°C. The limit frequency of the relays
indicates the damping of the signal to be switched (the signal forms can be changed).

IOpiggy 8642
Analog Inputs and Outputs
Description
The IOpiggy 8642 has four analog inputs. Optionally, the first two inputs (A0 and A1)
can be used as analog outputs. This can be configured in the measurement
application (e. g. CANoe). The following diagram illustrates the switching logic:
Inputs
You can operate the analog inputs in the following mode:
 Single-Ended (Analog In 0 … 3)
The common reference potential for measurement of the voltages is Analog GND.
Four independent signal lines are available for this.
Outputs
6.4
A voltage between 0 V and 12 V can be output. An analog output can drive a
maximum current of 10 mA (at 5 V) and 6 mA (at 12 V) respectively.
PWM Outputs (PWM0/PWM1)
Description
The IOpiggy 8642 has PWM generators at pin 1 (PWM 1) and at pin 5 (PWM 0),
which are operated at a common frequency. The configurable frequency range is
between 0.02 Hz and 20 kHz.
The two PWM duty cycles are configured in the measurement application and may be
set independently over the range 0.0 % to 100.0 %. The duty cycle resolution is 8 bits
over the entire frequency range.
6.5
PWM Input (PWM0)
Description
You can use the PWM input to measure the duty cycle of a PWM signal. The
minimum pulse width is 1 μs. This yields a maximum input frequency of 100 kHz
(at a 50 % duty cycle).

IOpiggy 8642
Analog Comparator
Description
The analog comparator is permanently connected to Analog Input 0 and enables
trigger-controlled measurements. A threshold is defined in the measurement
application for this purpose. If the upper or lower threshold limit is exceeded, this
triggers a single measurement at the configured measurement groups (see section
General Information on page 78).
The trigger can be configured for three cases:
 Trigger when upper limit exceeded
 Trigger when lower limit exceeded
 Trigger on either upper or lower limit violation

IOpiggy 8642
Measurement Examples
Example: Digital output in Open-Collector mode
Digital Out 0 and 1 are configured as Open-Collector outputs. Afterwards, a constant
voltage can be applied via a pull-up resistor. While LOW is defined with Digital GND,
HIGH depends on the applied voltages.
Example: Digital output with external signal source
This example involves toggling a sinusoidal source voltage VSIN-IN on and off arbitrarily. In the example, this is done by applying Vsignal in to Digital Out 4a. The voltages
can now be toggled on and off at Digital Out 4b via the internal switch. The
measurement application controls switching.

About Time Synchronization
9.1.1 General Information
Time stamps
and events
Time stamps are useful when analyzing incoming or outgoing data or event
sequences on a specific bus.
Figure 21: Time stamps of two CAN channels in CANalyzer
Generating
time stamps
Each event which is sent or received by a Vector network interface has an accurate
time stamp. Time stamps are generated for each channel in the Vector network
interface. The base for these time stamps is a common hardware clock in the device.
Figure 22: Common time stamp clock for each channel
If the measurement setup requires more than one Vector network interface, a
synchronization of all connected interfaces and their hardware clocks is needed.
Due to manufacturing and temperature tolerances, the hardware clocks may vary in
speed, so time stamps of various Vector devices drift over time.

Manual
Time Synchronization
Figure 23: Example of unsynchronized network interfaces. Independent time stamps drift apart.
To compensate for these time stamp deviations between the Vector network
interfaces, the time stamps can be either synchronized by software or by hardware
(see next section).
Note: The accuracy of the software sync is typically in range of 100 µs.
Note: The accuracy of the hardware sync is typically in range of 1 µs.

Time Synchronization
9.1.2 Software Sync
Synchronization
by software
The software time synchronization is driver-based and available for all applications
without any restrictions. The time stamp deviations from different Vector network
interfaces are calculated and synchronized to the common PC clock. For this purpose
no further hardware setup is required.
Figure 24: Time stamps of devices are synchronized to the PC clock (accuracy in range of 100 µs)
The setting of the software time synchronization can be changed in the Vector
Hardware Config tool in General information | Settings | Software time
synchronization.
Figure 25: Switching on the software synchronization
 YES
The software time synchronization is active.
 NO
The software time synchronization is not active.
Use this setting only if the Vector network interfaces are being synchronized over
the sync line or if only a single device is used.

Time Synchronization
9.1.3 Hardware Sync
Synchronization
by hardware
A more accurate time synchronization of multiple devices is provided by the hardware
synchronization which has to be supported by the application (e. g CANalyzer,
CANoe). Two Vector network interfaces can therefore be connected with the
SYNCcableXL (see page 119).
In order to synchronize up to five devices at the same time, a distribution box is
available (see section Multi SYNCbox External on page 120 and section Multi
SYNCbox Internal on page 121).

Manual
Time Synchronization
At each falling edge on the sync line which is initiated by the application, the Vector
network interface generates a time stamp that is provided to the application. This
allows the application to calculate the deviations between the network interfaces and
to synchronize the time stamps to a common time base (master clock) which is
defined by the application.
Figure 28: Time stamps are synchronized to the master clock (accuracy in range of 1 µs)
Note: The hardware synchronization must be supported by the application. For
further information please refer to the relevant application manual. Please note that
the software synchronization must be disabled (see Vector Hardware Config |
General information | Settings | Software time synchronization) if the hardware
synchronization is used.

10.1 CardSafe
Protection against
When using notebooks, especially on the test bench or in a test vehicle, the PCMCIA
mechanical damages connectors are frequently subjected to mechanical stresses - the consequence is the
snapping-off of the connectors. The patented connector fixing provided by Vector
Informatik's CardSafe offers effective, sensible protection.
CardSafe consists of a base plate and connector fixing made of robust metal. The
base plate is fastened to the underside of the notebook with a belt and does not have
to be removed during transport. Elaborate and time-consuming mounting is thus
unnecessary.
If cables are connected to the PC card and they should also be protected, the
connector fixing is used with a handle on the base plate. By tightening 2 adjustment
screws, the connectors are fixed securely. The connector fixing can be unbolted from
the notebook easily with a coin when the notebook is being transported.
Part number 05023.
10.2 CANcaseXL log CardFix Kit – SD Card Protection
Prevent insertion and The standard delivery of the CANcaseXL log allows the user to insert and remove the
rejection of SD card SD card from outside. In some situations, for example to prevent thefts, the inserted
SD card shall not be removable. The CardFix Kit is an ideal protection solution,
because the back side plate with the SD card slot is replaced by a closed plate. Thus
the SD card cannot be removed so easily anymore.
Part number 07132.
Note: A detailed instruction is delivered with the kit. However, the modification of your
CANcaseXL log can be done by our service.
