Import DBC : J1939 Format Support

mdaigneault 4 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 3 months ago 2

Hi IQAN Team -

It would be great if the Import DBC feature allowed to import J1939-formatted DBCs. We use this format quite often to have scaled and offset signals. However, the IQAN import feature only supports the import as Generic CAN ! I presume this is just an oversight, and should be an easy fix for the IQAN devs.

We are almost there...

Thanks !

J1939 databases should already be supported.  Can you provide an example of what you see and why this is not working for you?


This DBC question has come up in a couple of different applications. 

Some DBCs with J1939 do not get imported as JFIN/JFOUT in IQANdesign. 

I've been able to solve it by manually editing the DBC before import, changing the line

BA_DEF_DEF_ "ProtocolType" "";


BA_DEF_DEF_ "ProtocolType" "J1939";
