Calibration, measurement and visualization of embedded control systems

Sumac is an efficient tool used for calibration, measurement and visualization of embedded control systems or ECUs. It works either offline or in real-time via XCP communication or DBC-based CAN measurement.

The intuitive and lightweight interface makes it ideal during software development, calibration, testing and validation. It is intended for all stages of the development cycle.

Automatic reload of the A2L file simplifies testing scenarios when frequently using a new software release, for example in when building rapid prototypes or when the team works according to agile processes.
