Interfaces Made Fast and Easy – with the Softing TDX Design Templates

Softing TDX Design Templates – Efficient Way to Tester Interfaces

Virtually identical user interfaces are required in test systems on a regular basis for new vehicles, new ECUs or even ECU variants – usually with only a few minor adjustments. Particularly, the high-end interfaces demanded by users today – in terms of the display, but also in terms of the operating concept – prove to be extremely time-consuming. The design templates in the after-sales tester Softing TDX help you work faster and ensure you gain top-quality results in a very short time.

Flexible Commissioning Sequences – OTX makes it easy!

Flexible Commissioning Sequences – OTX makes it easy

After replacing or repairing vehicle components, the ECU and its peripherals must be adapted to each other again. In addition to only functional sequences, interaction with operating personnel to start individual process steps or enter parameters is often necessary. The advantages that OTX and the Softing OTX tools offer for a fast and robust realization of commissioning sequences are obvious.

DoIP with TLS – Small Change, Major Impact

DoIPs – Small Change, Major Impact

The ISO standard on diagnostic communication “Diagnostics over Internet Protocol” – or DoIP for short, is becoming increasingly prevalent in modern vehicle architectures. This is not surprising as the advantages of this innovation are obvious. On the Internet, it is normal to transmit large amounts of data – in modern vehicles, data packages of several GBytes are no longer unusual. The trend towards remote diagnostics is also unstoppable, which is why the current edition of the ISO 13400 standard details the necessary data backup. The answer: DoIP with TLS.

VIN|ING 2000 – The Innovative Leap in ECU Access

VIN|ING 2000 – The Innovative Leap in ECU Access

Vehicle Communication Interfaces (VCIs) are the central component when it comes to tester systems accessing the electronic control units (ECUs) that perform a wide range of control and regulation tasks in modern vehicles, including diagnostic functionality. The answer to the increasingly complex tasks and requirements of diagnostics is the multipurpose VCI VIN|ING 2000.

Efficient Fault Simulation – Automated, documented short-circuit and open load tests of ECU on-board diagnostics

Efficient Fault Simulation by Softing

In daily operation, ECUs in the vehicle are exposed to a wide range of environmental influences, such as vibrations, strongly fluctuating ambient temperatures and high humidity. The components must therefore be able to handle all conceivable faults. For the test, these faults are simulated on the ECU pin and the respective behavior and diagnostic entry documented. Typically, such fault simulations are used for function tests during development, for testing, release and validation of ECUs and components, as well as for integration validation during HiL testing or at the Functional Mock-Up (FMU).
