Importing NI-XNET Frames

Last Modified: August 31, 2020

Import incoming or outgoing frames from an NI-XNET database.

Before you begin, add an NI-XNET database and port. Frames are the messages transmitted across an embedded network. These messages are sorted into clusters within an NI-XNET database. You can import frames from the database to VeriStand.
  1. Launch the VeriStand Editor.
  2. In the Project Files pane, double-click a system definition file (.nivssdf). System Explorer opens.
  3. Click Hardware»Chassis»NI-XNET in the configuration tree.
  4. Expand an NI-XNET LIN, FlexRay, or CAN port.
  5. Expand Incoming or Outgoing.
  6. Right click a frame type you want to import and select Import Frames.
  7. In the Import NI-XNET Frames dialog box, click the XNET Frames tab, and select the frames you want to import.

    You can also use the options on the Import Settings and General Options tabs to temporarily modify the default settings for importing frames. For example, you can import the frames in signal or raw data format, create information channels for the frames, or allow disable and trigger channels for frame transmission.


    Configure default settings for importing frames on the XNET page of the Options dialog box.

  8. Click OK.
  9. Save the system definition file.
