Converting Can-Matrix-Formats .arxml .dbc .dbf .kcd ...

Project Description

This peace of Software mainly helps to interprete several different description formats for can communication. Some of these formats can be written also.

This software helps to convert between can database description formats. You can for example convert a autosar system description (.arxml) to an candb++ - File (.dbc).

Therefor this software includes a “Python Can Matrix Object” which describes the can communication and the needed objects (Boardunits, Frames, Signals, Values, …)

There are some import- and some export-functions for this object.

supported file formats for import:

.dbc candb / Vector .dbf Busmaster (open source!) .kcd kayak (open source!) .arxml autosar system description .yaml dump of the python object .xls(x) excel xls-import, works with .xls-file generated by this lib .sym peak pcan can description

supported file formats for export:

.dbc .dbf .kcd .xls(x) .json Canard (open source!) .arxml (very basic implementation) yaml (dump of the python object) sym

Depends on:

xlrd (home, PyPI) xlwt-future (PyPI) XlsxWriter (GitHub, PyPI PyYAML (PyPI) lxml (PyPI)
