It’s 2018, and we’re hard at work keeping our New Year’s resolution: making Raptor better. Here’s what you can expect from our latest round of December 2017 Raptor Updates.

Raptor CAN

Simulation Enhancements: Now, you can use DCB initial value field to allow pre-built simulation scenarios.

Multichannel Support: We’ve fixed the issues with CAN2 on dual/multi-channel CAN cables.

Raptor CAN Lite: Use Raptor CAN without a license.  Raptor CAN Lite is the same as Raptor CAN, just with limitations in log size and reduced DBC message content. It’s a great way to try Raptor CAN! 

Usability Improvements: We listened to your feedback, and we’ve improved simulation settings, monitoring, and log manipulation to make Raptor CAN even easier.

Learn more about these Raptor CAN updates by visiting the New Eagle wiki.

Raptor Test

Raptor Test Lite: Use Raptor Test without a license. In this lite mode, you can work with the RPG files created on the lite version of Raptor-Dev.

Additional Target Support: We’ve added support for ECM196 and GCM70 variants.

You can read more about these Raptor Test updates on the New Eagle wiki.
