neoVI FIRE : 6x CAN, 4x LIN - neoVI RED : 2x CAN, 2x LIN
Today’s vehicles are pushing the limits on the number of CAN and
LIN networks. neoVI FIRE and neoVI RED address these issues by providing multiple
channels of Dual Wire CAN, one channel of Single Wire CAN, one
channel Low Speed Fault Tolerant and multiple channels of LIN in one
tool. All channels run simultaneously on neoVI FIRE and are time stamped in
hardware. A fully isolated USB interface allows a PC to send and
receive messages without worry of damage to the PC.
Stand-Alone Logging, Scripting, and Simulation
In addition to working as a PC interface, neoVI FIRE and neoVI RED support
operating in stand-alone mode. In this mode the neoVI can
run real-time scripts, log data to a removable microSD card, and
simulate ECUs and gateways. With these features, it is possible to
run a script to reflash ECUs using the data from the microSD card.
Vehicle Spy Application Software
Our Vehicle Spy software fully supports neoVI FIRE and neoVI RED. Users can use Vehicle Spy to monitor and transmit on all neoVI
networks simultaneously. Vehicle Spy is used (and required) to configure stand-alone mode. Users can take advantage of the
powerful interface to load databases and to write and debug scripts before downloading them to the device.
neoVI DLL, J2534, Linux, and RP1210 Support
Some prefer to write their own software. For these users, neoVI FIRE and neoVI RED support three open APIs: neoVI DLL API, SAE J2534 API
and the TMC RP1210 A/B API. The neoVI DLL API includes examples for all popular development environments including
C#, VB. NET, VB6, Delphi, C++ Builder, Visual C++, LabVIEW and LabWindows.
Hardware-in-the-Loop Real-Time Performance
neoVI FIRE and neoVI RED include a real-time scripting engine that
can be used to perform real-time messaging. For
example, someone creating an application can load
a script into the hardware and interface with the
script variables allowing microsecond measurement
and control. Also Vehicle Spy, through a new feature
called hardware acceleration, can be configured to
send real-time functions to the device such as periodic
messaging, replay, or scripting.
neoVI FIRE and neoVI RED are capable of logging to a removable microSD card. The logging features a realtime fail-safe FAT32
storage system. Also included is a real-time clock for hardware timestamping all messages. Finally, a powerful
power management system automatically powers down neoVI and can wake up based on network activity or
Besides the powerful real-time scripting capability, neoVI FIRE and neoVI RED development kits are available to assist users in
creating their own embedded application. The development kit allows you to bootload your own compiled C code
into the device. Your code can reuse the CAN, LIN, J1850 drivers that exist on the device. With the development kit,
you can debug and design code on your Windows PC. When you’re ready, compile and bootload to the device.
