Best Practices

With this page we would like to give you some advices, for common use cases of the ADTF Calibration Toolbox 3.

Record and decode an arbitrary number of XCP signals


Sometimes you may want to record all available XCP signals and beside you want to decode a subset of only a few XCP signals.


The configuration of such a session is not trivial. But dont worry, we will guide you through this part.


The session can be devided into three parts:

The 'xcp_communication' graph

his graph can be seen as the 'main' graph and must be configured as the 'active filter graph' in the Session Editor . The necessary XCP communication devices (e.g. XCP over Ethernet) are next to the 'XCP recording' - subgraph part of that graph:

The 'xcp_recording' subgraph

The included 'XCP Master Filter' (renamed to 'XCP Recording Master Filter' in the screenshot), will handle the communication between the connected ECU and this ADTF session. With the Signal Config Filter Editor (SCFE) of this filter you can explicitly configure the XCP signals you want to record. Additionally you should disable the property 'Decode Frames' (XCP Master Filter) in order to increase the overall performance of the session (the recorded raw signals can still be decoded during playback) It is necessary to mention, that the 'Decode Frames' Property of this XCP Master Filter has to be false. Cause we just want to record this set of XCP Signals.

The 'xcp_decoding' subgraph

This subgraph will provide the decoding functionality. For that purpose the added 'XCP Decoding Master' has to work in 'Playback Mode' and the 'Decode Frames' Property has now set to 'true'. All XCP signals configured in the XCP Decode Filter will be decoded and transmitted via the filter's output pins structure to the output - Pins of the XCP Decode Filter.
