Key facts

  • Symbolic decoding for CAN and LIN address, including industry-standard CAN DBC file support
  • On-screen serial decoding is time-correlated with the serial data waveform
  • Trigger on start of frame, frame ID, data and various error conditions
  • Powerful search and navigate capability on CAN start of frame, frame type, identifier, data and error conditions
  • Fastest CAN and LIN eye-diagram mask testing with standard mask test functionality
  • R&S oscilloscopes | Engineered for multi-domain challenges

Brief description

All Rohde & Schwarz oscilloscopes support triggering and decoding of CAN and LIN buses including CAN DBC file import. You set up decoding in seconds. For detailed analysis, results can be viewed as color-coded telegrams and/or in a table. Errors are identified efficently and reliably using the hardware-accelerated trigger. You can trigger on start of frame, frame ID, data or various error conditions

Features & benefits

Fast bus setup

Bus setup in seconds with the app cockpit

Starting from the app cockpit, it only takes a few steps to configure any given protocol. Once the bus to decode has been chosen, the connected channels selected and the correct levels set, decoding begins automatically.

Bus decoding selection with the app cockpit

CAN-dbc support

Symbolic triggering and decoding based on CAN DBC files is supported

You can analyze the decoded bus with symbolic labels based on DBC file information. Just import the label file and you can start showing the bus frames as symbol. In addition, you can select your trigger based on bus label. Triggering on symbolic data is also possible.

Decoded frames are color coded

Color-coded telegram display

Telegram display as color-coded bus signals and in decode table

You can analyze the decoded bus frames by overlaying the signal with color-coded data. Address and data content can be displayed in hex, bin or ASCII format. You always have the best overview with the flexible screen setup. The telegrams can also be displayed in a concise table.

Strong trigger capability

Strong trigger capability on start of frame, frame ID, data and various error conditions

The protocol-specific trigger lets you reliably isolate protocol events and errors. Thanks to high acquisition rates, Rohde & Schwarz oscilloscopes are ideal for finding errors quickly, allowing decoding of protocol-specific trigger results. The hardware-based triggering is available on specific protocol content, e.g. addresses or data based on CAN-dbc, as well as on protocol errors.

Search and navigate in recorded acquisitions

Powerful search and navigate capability

Comprehensive search functions simplify the analysis of long signal sequences. You can search for waveforms based on different criteria, such as signal faults or protocol content. All detected events are shown in a table with timestamps. The individual events can be examined in a zoom window with simple navigation between events.

Powerful searching, even in long recordings
