The Raptor Tool chain is a family of software products designed to guide businesses from concept to production as they develop control software for complex electromechanical systems, such as those found in hybrid or electric vehicles, mobile hydraulic systems, internal combustion engines, or other complex systems. The Raptor Tool chain consists of 6 unique software products: Raptor-Dev, Raptor-Cal, Raptor-CAN, Raptor-Test, Raptor-Telematics, and Raptor-Service. Each of these tool’s features, functionality, and workflows were designed by experienced application engineers hoping to improve upon the shortcomings of other software tools currently on the market. The Raptor Tool chain was designed to work with an extensive line of automotive-grade, production-ready control modules and displays.

Software

Raptor-Dev: MATLAB Simulink Control Software Development Tool

Raptor-Dev enhances the MATLAB Simulink modeling environment with a library of customizable Simulink blocks, and automated build tools, that allows developers to quickly create embedded control software for Raptor Controllers and Raptor Displays. Developers work directly in the Simulink environment with Raptor-Dev blocks as well as native Simulink blocks and features, and produce code for rugged production hardware via a one-click automated build process.

Raptor-Cal: ECU Calibration Tool

Raptor-Cal is a PC-based tool used to program (i.e. flash), calibrate, or create displays for electronic control modules. A spreadsheet-like user interface allows users to easily create displays or access all of the calibratable parameters contained in the control module.

Raptor-CAN: CAN Analysis, Datalogging & Simulation

Raptor-CAN is a comprehensive, simple tool used for communicating with and monitoring CAN systems using a Kvaser or RP1210 compatible CAN adaptor. Raptor-CAN shows in-depth analysis of the CAN traffic being sent back and forth from any system, and will record this data for future reference. Raptor-CAN also has a simulate function, sending simulated CAN signals to the connected hardware (usually using a USB to CAN system) through the allotted *.dbc file.

Raptor-Test: Automated Testing and Validation Tool

Raptor-Test facilitates testing of model-based software against requirements through simulated hardware-in-the-loop (SimHIL). Raptor-Test greatly improves the effectiveness and speed of software verification and increases confidence in production intent software releases.

Raptor-Telematics: Remote Tracking and Management

New Eagle has developed a Raptor™ compatible Telematics platform, which enables remote tracking and management of assets through GPS and cellular data technology. This system serves as gateway for remote administration of vehicles and data analysis. The New Eagle telematics platform can monitor and analyze driver behavior, measure fuel consumption, and detect maintenance issues with vehicles before they become a problem. The seamless integration between the New Eagle Telematics Control Module (TCM) and New Eagle ECUs also allows the option for remote calibration, reflashing of the ECU, and fault reporting.

New Eagle delivers a complete telematics solution including hardware, software, cellular plan, web server, and web portal interface. To learn more or access product support pages, click on the link below.

Raptor-Service: Field-service and Programming Tool

Raptor-Service is a low-cost PC tool used by field service personnel to field-update software in electronic control units, perform diagnostics and do system troubleshooting. Raptor-Service allows organizations using Raptor-enabled ECUs to create a branded service tool product with custom logos, colors, license agreements, contact information and product naming. In the same way that you would put your logo on an electronic controller running your control software, you can brand the tool which services that controller.

Raptor Displays

New Eagle’s line of Raptor Displays and complimentary Raptor-Dev software offer an alternative approach to the traditional programming languages: These displays allow developers to leverage the graphical programming environment of MATLAB Simulink to quickly and easily create, edit, and debug display software. All Raptor displays are capable of interfacing with any CAN-based actuators or sensors. And the Raptor VeeCAN 800 and VeeCAN 320 in particular have a number of analog and frequency inputs and digital outputs, which make these displays ideal all-in-one display/controller solutions for a wide variety of applications.

Raptor Training

Raptor Training is offered in two ways:
  • We offer a step-by-step video training series that can be utilized at your own pace online. This video series, consisting of 20 short videos covers topics ranging from initial product overviews, installation and licensing, to building, programming, and troubleshooting software. Its a great way get a jump start and gain experience using the tools from the comfort of your office.
  • We offer in-person training classes led by our team of experienced system engineers. This provides hands-on experience which enables the new practitioner to gain familiarity with the Raptor tool chain by building, deploying, calibrating, and refining a real world control application. The training is an intensive three-day course that introduce users to Raptor ECU Based Rapid Prototyping and general Model-Based Controls Engineering.

Raptor Maintenance and Support Policy

New Eagle provides software.neweagle.net for users to download Raptor Products, report issues, and track new features. A user account will need to be created to login into the site. Once logged in you will be able to see all the latest versions of Raptor Products with a link to download.

We always recommend that customers keep their maintenance up to date so they have access to the latest features, fixes and support.

Software Maintenance is the most cost effective way to protect your software investment and gain the greatest value from your Raptor® and MotoHawk® products. Software Maintenance allows you to keep your software up-to-date by providing access to the latest releases for the year. Each release demonstrates that New Eagle continues to add new features, improve functionality, and enhance the performance of the tool. Additionally, keeping your maintenance current provides access to general, standard support - ensuring your business operations are kept up and running.

Standard support is provided for software products for the past two years of releases. For example, if the current release is 2017b, then support is provided for 2016a/b and 2017a/b. If a prior release must be used, support can be provided via an application engineering support contract or with a production supply agreement.

Maintenance

  • Licenses are non-ending permission to use the software. Maintenance is optional.
  • A license includes two major software releases as well as the ability to request big fixes, receive software support, and to request new/improved software features. For example, if a license is purchased during latest version 2016a, version 2016b is also included.
  • Maintenance purchases allow for two additional major release updates. For example, If a 2016a license is purchased, Maintenance may be purchased to extend support and software versions to 2017a & 2017b.
  • Annual Maintenance purchases are required to maintain eligibility for purchasing Maintenance. For example, if a 2016a license is purchased and Maintenance is not purchased before the release of 2017a, you must purchase a new license for software 2017b and later. Additionally, software support is not available for users that do not purchase Maintenance.
