Data Logger XORAYA Z7

The XORAYA Z7 is a high-performance automotive data logger with customizable interfaces based on the Xilinx Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC.

Product
Overview

The XORAYA Z7 is the latest generation of our high-performance automotive data logger, which is capable of recording various vehicle bus systems simultaniously. Measurement data is either written to the internal hard disk or transferred to an external computer system via the Ethernet interface using a precise, central time stamp with a resolution of 100 ns. 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 default 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 Z7:

Default
Interfaces:

  • 20x HS-CAN at least
    4x CAN-FD
  • 2x FlexRay
  • 8x RS-232
  • 1x Gbit-Ethernet (4-Port-Switch)

3 x free slots for the
following modules:

4x / 7x LIN

  • 24x LIN

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.

Customer-Specific
Adjustments

The modular design of the XORAYA Z7 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 Z7 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 12 OABR ports.

  • 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.
