Diagnostic interfaces from Softing are based on the tried and tested EDIC® hardware and software platform. EDICpci is a versatile interface and is perfect for use in stationary applications thanks to its high-performing and integrated connection to the PC via the PCI bus.
The vehicle protocols are handled directly in the interface. This ensures fast response times and reliable real-time behavior regardless of the PC operating system. Extensive buffer mechanisms make parallel operation of several communication channels possible.
The communication protocols UDS (ISO 14229) and KWP 2000 (ISO 14230, ISO 15765) as well as many OEM-specific protocols are supported via the standardized D-PDU API (ISO 22900-2). With a software layer based on the D-PDU API, the VCI can also be used as a PassThru device in accordance with SAE J2534. Together with the Diagnostic Tool Set DTS from Softing, a total solution in accordance with the MCD-3D standard ISO 22900-3 and ODX technology can be realized. Diagnostic interfaces from Softing are based on the tried and tested EDIC® hardware and software platform. EDICpci is a versatile interface and is perfect for use in stationary applications thanks to its high-performing and integrated connection to the PC via the PCI bus.
By combining several EDICpci interfaces (or even other EDIC® interfaces), the number of communication channels available on the PC system can quickly be adapted to the relevant application.
Software upgrades are also available for EDICpci ensuring it is always perfectly equipped for future applications. This is also the way to realize customer-specific software solutions. The CAN bus physics can be varied by using piggybacks.
