Datalogger XORAYA N4000

Data Logger XORAYA N4000

The XORAYA N4000 is a high-performance automotive data logger with customizable interfaces, based on the Xilinx Zynq® Ultra-Scale+™


The XORAYA N4000 is the latest generation of our high performance automotive data logger. Compared to its predecessor (XORAYA Z7), it has significantly more powerful hardware, which records data with up to 4 Gbit/s. In addition, the logger is now equipped with an SFP+ interface (for 10GBase-T) and a hermetically sealed, active cooling system.

As with the predecessor, the measurement data is either written to the internal hard disk with a precise, central time stamp with a resolution of 100 ns or transmitted via the Ethernet interface to an external computer system. Optionally, the data can also be stored on an external storage unit. A built-in
supercapacitor unit is able to bridge power fluctuations and to shut the data logger down safely in case of power failures.

In addition to a standard interface configuration, the data logger has 4 configurable slots for adding additional interfaces to the device. The following modules are currently supported by the XORAYA N4000:


  • 20x HS-CAN, thereof 2x CAN-FD
  • 2x FlexRay
  • 8x RS-232
  • 4x Gbit-Ethernet
  • 1x SFP+

3 x free slots for the
following modules:

4x / 7x LIN


4x PSI5

8x RS-232

6x Analog

1 x free slot for the

4x Gbit-Ethernet


  • 20x HS-CAN,
    thereof 20x CAN-FD
  • 2x FlexRay
  • 8x RS-232
  • 8x Gbit-Ethernet
  • 1x SFP+

3 x free slots for the
following modules:

  • 4x / 7x LIN
  • 4x PSI5
  • 4x CAN
  • 8x RS-232
  • 6x Analog

1 x free slot for the
following module:

  • 24x LIN
  • 4x Gbit-Ethernet

In addition, an extension to CCP / XCP and a camera interface are available. The support of further bus systems and extensions is also possible on request.


The modular design of the XORAYA N4000 allows numerous customizations. For example, the device can be assembled or retrofitted according to customer requirements. As a result, the datalogger can be quickly and efficiently adapted to changing conditions and can develop continuously with your projects.

  • Interfaces

The N4000 has three slots for plug-in cards, which allow a flexible configuration of the data logger. In addition, an add-on board is available that equips the datalogger with a 24x LIN Interface.

  • Performance

The built-in Xilinx FPGA can also be exchanged for a more powerful FPGA module including the RAMs. In addition, the built-in hard disk space can be extended from 240 GB to 1 TB.

  • Software

Software adjustments are possible on customer request as well. For example, additional export formats can be implemented as needed.

  • Installation

From the customer-specific cable set to the corresponding installation racks to the complete installation in test vehicles, various customer-specific solutions are offered.



The default configuration of the data logger can be extended with further Interfaces at any time:

Number of configurable interface slots: 4
Preconfigured log interfaces: 20x HS-CAN (20x CAN-FD)
8x RS-232
1x Dual-FlexRay
4x Gigabit-Ethernet
1x SFP+

The following interface configurations are currently supported out-of-the-box:

Configuration HS-CAN CAN-FD
(via HS-CAN)
RS-232 FlexRay LIN Analog Gbit-Ethernet
R8F2C20Ge8 20 4 8 2 8
