NEW: Softing TDX Release 2.5 – Focus on Speed and Convenience

Softing TDX Release 2.5

The new release 2.5 of the repair shop tester Softing TDX is now available. The new version makes it possible to define mandatory updates for programs and content, handle VCI configurations more conveniently and reduce cases of support thanks to additional information. Rights and user management have been further simplified to improve usability.

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.

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).

Mastering Test Complexitiy with Individual Test Systems by Softing

It is a long journey from the start of engineering to the installation of all vehicle components and ECUs in the production vehicle. Comprehensive testing of the electronic components during the entire engineering process is essential. This is the only way to thoroughly safeguard and optimize hardware and software functions. Errors can be detected and remedied quickly – the earlier the better.
