New Eagle offers many tools for the development and testing of CAN networks including MotoHawk add-ons and the Kvaser hardware and software products.

MotoHawk Libraries and Tools

CANopen Library for MotoHawk

As an add- to MotoHawk, the CANopen Client Library implements the master side of the CANopen protocol. Instead of manually writing code to handle the initialization sequence and other protocol status messages, by dropping a few key blocks into a Simulink model, the CANopen Library enables you to quickly establish the communication protocol. This saves development and debugging time and reduces complexity.

For more information, the datasheet is available here: MotoHawk CANopen Library User Guide. To inquire about obtaining the library, email New Eagle using this contact page.

DBC to CAN Toolbox for MotoHawk

Introduction to Network Toolbox (VIDEO)

New Eagle's Network Toolbox makes it easy to create CAN input and output blocks in MotoHawk. Instead of manually writing code in MATLAB to handle CAN messaging, Network Toolbox enables you to have useful CAN blocks starting from an industry-standard .dbc file to describe the CAN network. This saves development and debugging time and reduces complexity. With the free DBC file editor mentioned below, you can also create your own custom .dbc files.

J1939 Toolbox (Diagnostic Manager)

New Eagle's J1939 Library can accelerate your heavy vehicle development, especially for systems targeting certification.

J1939 CAN MotoHawk M File

The J1939 Message file, from Woodward, includes an m-file of most of the basic J1939 messages. There is also a Simulink model for DM1, DM11, Address Claiming, and Static and Dynamic messaging. Since the model does not cover the entire protocol, some customized setup may be required and assistance for this is included with the purchase of the library.
