The SAE J1939 protocol software from IXXAT provides all communication mechanisms defined in the SAE J1939 specification and therefore enables the quick and easy development of SAE J1939 devices. The software is supplied in C source code and can be easily adapted to the customer's application via a central configuration file. Thanks to demo programs, which run directly on a reference platform (evaluation board of the CPU vendor or IXXAT-PC/CAN interface card), initial development results are visible within a very short time. In addition to the 16-bit microcontroller version, IXXAT now also offers a version of the software optimized for 8-bit microcontroller systems. With an almost identical scope of functions, the new version requires only minimum memory resources and only needs 200 bytes of RAM. This allows the development of very simple, low-cost assemblies for connection to SAE J1939.The SAE J1939 protocol stack from IXXAT also serves as a basis for further protocols such as NMEA 2000 and ISO 11783 (ISOBUS).In addition to the protocol software, IXXAT offers customer specific implementation, development of hardware and software as well as training and consulting services.
