D-Server API

The D-Server API under ISO 22900-3 permits complete and symbolic access to ECUs using standardized ODX data.

Typical areas of implementation

The D-Server API is always used when complete access to the ECU is to be made possible using ODX data. The focus is on access to a standardized API and complete control of the communication – even with diagnostic services which are not technically permissible.


  • Simple to use with symbolic interface
  • Perfect integration into the diagnostic data process due to ODX processing
  • Simple adaptation to ECU changes with data configuration (ODX)
  • Use of inexpensive off-the-shelf applications with standardized MCD-3 API
  • Also allows bad-case tests → increases ECU quality
  • Several communication channels can be used in parallel
