Where is the EDS checker gone?

The CANopen EDS (electronic data-sheet) checker developed and supported by Vector Informatik has been updated and reviewed. It is not more available as stand-alone tool. It is now integrated into CiA’s CANopen conformance test tool. The very same EDS checker is also embedded in some demo-versions of Vector tools (download center) as well as the full versions.

In order to pre-test the profile-specific parameters of the EDS, you need additional CODBs. The responsible CiA technical groups have approved the following CODBs:

  • CANopen I/O profile (CiA 401 version 3.1.0)
  • CANopen encoder profile (CiA 406 version 4.0.0)
  • CANopen inclinometer profile (CiA 410 version 1.3.0)
  • CANopen Lift profile (CiA 417-2 version 2.1.0 and CiA 417-4 version 2.1.0)
  • CANopen contrast media injector profile (CiA 425 version 2.2)
  • CANopen subsea profile (CiA 443 version 2.1.0)

Software engineering

Women drive software technology: Lady Ada of Lovelace is regarded as the first programmer. Grace Hopper invented the first compiler and Margaret Hamilton coined the term software engineering. Unfortunately, in the September issue is no female author. Nevertheless, there are some interesting articles about software engineering. Two of them deal with ODX (Open Diagnostic data Exchange), an XML-based, machine-readable data format.
