Reference Book | Vehicle Diagnostics – Basics, Bus Systems, Protocols, Applications

We congratulate our esteemed colleague Peter Subke on the publication of his third technical book "Vehicle Diagnostics – Fundamentals, Bus Systems, Protocols, Applications." The book supports engineers and technicians from development, testing, production and service at vehicle manufacturers and suppliers who deal with mechatronic systems, their data exchange and diagnostic protocols or services and who are interested in innovations based on networked and intelligent electronic systems. This specialised book is also an excellent source of information for students of electrical engineering, automotive engineering and computer science at universities, technical colleges and vocational schools.

All-in-One Diagnostic Testing with Ed & Ted – Get it Done!

Have you ever wondered how practical it would be to combine all diagnostic functions in one single tool? The Softing Diagnostic Tool Set is an intuitive diagnostic tool for the entire range of use cases in both vehicle engineering and development as well as diagnostics, from ECU testing to vehicle release in engineering, testing and manufacturing.

Vehicle Data in Human Readable Form with Ed & Ted – Get it Done!

A fully equipped vehicle produces several gigabits of data per second. In particular, this data provides information about the technical condition of the vehicle. In raw format and also in standardized data description formats, however, this data is generally not comprehensible to humans. Therefore, they are interpreted by software and converted into human-readable information. Softing's Smart Diagnostic Engine (SDA) is a platform-independent runtime system that interprets and executes diagnostic functions, simple diagnostic services and even complex and automated diagnostic sequences for precisely this purpose.

"Solution Spotlights" | Get to know our new short videos!

Our new video series "Solution Spotlights" is now available for you. Our trainers use practical examples to introduce you to the challenges of automotive electronics as well as concrete solution approaches and their benefits. The short videos are not only suitable for experts, but also for beginners from the areas of development, production as well as aftersales. Each topic is explained in an easy-to-understand manner and is also clearly illustrated by a short demo of the use case from practice.

New Diagnostic Interface VIN|ING 800

We expanded our Vehicle Communication Interface (VCI) portfolio with a universal, robust diagnostic interface via CAN/FD. The diagnostic interface VIN|ING 800 unites state-of-the-art hardware design for CAN/FD and maximum sturdiness with all-round impact protection at a highly attractive price. For many service applications requiring just one CAN interface, this device is the perfect choice as it provides a lean and at the same time powerful interface from the application to the vehicle. VIN|ING 800 can also be deployed to efficiently solve communication tasks in the engineering of vehicle systems.

Visit us at the 16th Conference on Diagnostics in Dresden, Germany

Softing Automotive welcomes you again this year to the Diagnostics Conference in Dresden. On May 23 and 24, you will learn everything about diagnostics in mechatronic vehicle systems. Among others, Jürgen Heilmeier, Manager Innovation & Test at Softing Automotive, and Markus Steffelbauer, Head of Product Management at Softing Automitive, will present the innovations in SOVD in development - from ECU to vehicle.

Interview | "Automation is Never at an End"

Interview "Automation is Never at an End"

Digitization and digital transformation, as well as e-mobility, are topics that are currently keeping the automotive industry very busy. Trends such as remote work and cloud solutions as well as 4G and 5G technologies are currently in great demand. Among other things, they enable on-board access to the vehicle. And there are always new topics with regard to automation as well. In the area of diagnostics, the requirements are becoming increasingly complex, not least due to extensive safety measures.
