No Signals Visible in “Signals” View of CAN IG When Using an ARXML Databases with AUTOSAR Version ≥ 4.2

Question:

Using a CAN IG and an ARXML database I can select a frame out of the database but I do not see any signals in the Signals view of the CAN IG. Why?

Answer:

Starting with AUTOSAR version 4.2 the PDU handling has changed. Signals are not attached to frames anymore, they are attached to PDUs. As the CAN Interactive Generator does only handle frames, it is not suitable anymore for ARXML databases with AUTOSAR version ≥ 4.2.

Possible solutions/workarounds:

  • From CANalyzer/CANoe 12.0 a new Interactive Generator exists, called PDU Interactive Generator.

    In CANoe this can be found under Simulation | PDU Interactive Generator:


    In CANalyzer this can be found under Analysis & Stimulation | PDU Interactive Generator:


    More information is available in the product help:
    Simulation Setup | User Interfaces | PDU Interactive Generator (PDU IG)
  • For CANalyzer/CANoe versions ≥ 9.0 please see the article for possibilities how to send a signal when an AUTOSAR 4.2ff database is in use. Please note: Having CANalyzer only the described CAPL solution applies.
