January 2020 Raptor™ News 

Chris BeecherBlog, Company News, Raptor Software

The latest release of Raptor 2019b includes a number of improvements to Raptor’s powerful software tools. If your software maintenance plan is up-to-date, you can access the latest features and improvements today at software.neweagle.net.

Software isn’t all to celebrate this new year, though — with comprehensive support, on-site Raptor training offerings, and a growing selection of all-new OEM controllers coming soon to our hardware lineup, taking control of your next project is getting easier—and more reliable—than ever this 2020! 

Configuring Software to Use Wake-ON-CAN or Wake-ON-LIN

Normally, Raptor™ Electronic Control Units (ECUs) support the capability of awakening in response to a voltage on the ignition or wake line, typically identified as ‘WAKE_INPUT1’ on the datasheet.  However, some Raptor ECUs support the capability to configure the unit to wake on another environmental stimulus, such as an incoming CAN message or a change on the LIN bus. This capability can be used in many application situations, such as to wake up internal controllers when the vehicle door is opened.  To learn how, read our step-by-step Raptor Power User Tip and download our sample model.
