Vector is introducing the new Version 13.0 of its CANape measurement and calibration tool. The development software for ECU calibration now supports users with such new features as extensive printing and reporting functions as well as statistical evaluations of measurement results.
CANape offers a variety of reporting functions for documenting the results of measurement data analysis and the progress of the calibration project. In the Print View, the different display and calibration windows can be quickly positioned on a page. The windows may be exported as an image file or PDF document by a simple drag & drop operation, and they can be pasted in other tools.

Featuring new products, enhanced parts selection & graphing tools, & broader compatibility, SpiCalci 9.0 calculates performance characteristics & parameters for AVX’s advanced multilayer ceramic SMPS capacitors
AVX Corporation has released a new version of its SpiCalci simulation software, an engineering tool that calculates performance characteristics and parameters for its switch mode power supply (SMPS) capacitors.
Featuring enhanced part selection and including nearly all of the new SMPS devices that AVX has introduced over the past two years, many of which are sole-sourced, SpiCalci 9.0 allows engineers to input raw data and generate output information and graphs that will help them choose which of AVX’s advanced multilayer ceramic (MLC) SMPS capacitors will best satisfy their application criteria.
