The extended version of IXXAT’s J1939 protocol software designed specifically for the development of devices and systems for the maritime sector is now available from Can + Automotion .
IXXAT now offers an extension for its proven J1939 protocol software according to the NMEA 2000 standard. The extension enables the quick and cost-effective development of NMEA 2000 Level A&B Class 1 devices.
The NMEA 2000 protocol of the National Marine Electronics Association defines messages and mechanisms for applications in the maritime sector.
Key features of IXXAT’s extension of J1939 protocol software:
- Fast Packet protocol for rapid transmission of data blocks up to 223 bytes
- Dynamic Address Claiming, Complex Request, Complex Command and Complex Acknowledgment
- Support for NMEA 2000 standard parameter groups (PGs) such as Product Information, Configuration Information and Transmit/Receive lists
Using the IXXAT NMEA 2000 extension module in conjunction with the J1939 protocol software, an NMEA 2000 interface according to the currently valid NMEA 2000 standard can be implemented into maritime devices with low development risk and in a short time, enabling a fast time-to-market.
The NMEA 2000 extension module and the J1939 protocol software are provided completely in ANSI-C. This allows use of the software on any target system and easy adaptation to customer requirements.
IXXAT offers services for the development of customer-specific hardware and software in addition to OEM product development.
IXXAT also offers a J1939 API for the development of PC-based applications such as applications for diagnostics, maintenance/service and control, and with the J1939 designer an editor and code generator for J1939 projects.
