Vector CANape Limitations

For Vector CANape®, the Simulink® Real-Time™ software does not support:

  • Connecting MATLAB® to the target computer while using Vector CANape.

  • Loading, starting, or stopping the real-time application by using Vector CANape commands.

    To load, start, or stop the real-time application on the target computer, use the target computer command-line interface. For example:

    slrealtime load --AppName app_name

    slrealtime start

    slrealtime stop

    For more information, see Target Computer Command-Line Interface.

  • Vector CANape flash programming.

  • Multiple simultaneous Vector CANape connections to a single target computer.

Event mode data acquisition has the following limitations:

  • Every piece of data that the Simulink Real-Time software adds to the event list slows the real-time application. The amount of data that you can observe depends on the model sample time and the speed of the target computer. It is possible to overload the target computer CPU to where data integrity is reduced.

  • You can trace only signals and scalar parameters. You cannot trace vector parameters.
