Products and Solutions for Vehicle Diagnostics, Communication, Simulation and Testing

Softing provides the entire product range for diagnostics, communication and testing – from vehicle access through programming interfaces to application. For engineering, manufacturing and after-sales service. For cars, motorcycles, trucks and Non-Road Mobile Machinery (NRMM).

Within our field of expertise, we provide offline systems (e.g. for database or test creation) and runtime applications. It goes without saying that our portfolio of hardware and software is complemented by training sessions, support, consulting and application support.

Softing DTS – Diagnostic Tool Set

Creation of diagnostics and communication in the vehicle.

Diagnostic Tool Set enables developers, engineers and technicians to create consistent diagnostic functions and sequences based on international standards like OTX, ODX, UDS, MCD-3D as well as to ensure a reliably diagnostic communication over the entire value chain. With ODX-Editor (DTS.venice), D-Server (DTS.cos), Tester (DTS.monaco) and lots of helpers for your daily work.

Softing TDX – Tester for DiagnostiX

Modular, universal and flexible diagnostic framework for after-sales.

Softing TDX is a universal and flexible diagnostic framework for the creation of repair shop applications intended to be used by vehicle and component manufacturers. It supports the creation of all necessary diagnostic functions needed in troubleshooting, repair and in the setup of entire vehicles or individual components.

Softing SDE – Smart Diagnostic Engine

Platform-independent diagnostic runtime system for diagnostic functions, sequences and services throughout the entire life cycle.

Softing SDE is based on the standardized diagnostic formats ODX and OTX and extends these with an easy-to-operate abstraction layer. The modular component which is used independently of a specific platform takes a functional diagnostic approach by, for example, providing functions for reading the fault memory and programming at the API. It also enables remote access to the diagnostic functions.

Vehicle Communication Interfaces, VCI

Wide range of VCIs for all areas of application in the process chain

Softing provides an extensive portfolio of VCIs, each tailored to the specific requirements of the areas of engineering, manufacturing, and after-sales service. These VCIs are based on our extensive years of experience in product business and customized solutions.  

The processes of electronic engineering established and exemplified at Softing as well as our honed awareness of quality are the basis for the reliable use of VCIs with your application.

Softing D-PDU API

Standardized vehicle access via D-PDU API

Our D-PDU API software enables the easy integration of SOFTING diagnostic and communication interfaces into diagnostic tools. In all EDIC interfaces the communication protocol stack is implemented as embedded software.

Softing TCS – The Configurable Diagnostic Simulation

Configurable diagnostic simulation as a replacement for real ECUs or vehicles. 

Softing TCS is the diagnostic simulation for all cases where no ECU or vehicle is available, for example for test preparation, regression testing or in training and teaching facilities.

Softing VCF – Vehicle Communication Framework

Highly efficient middleware for all areas of implementation in vehicle communication.

Softing VCF enables all functions required in vehicle and ECU communication. As far as off-board communication (diagnostics) is concerned, it is not only possible to display a test system but also simulate ECUs. In on-board communication, it´s possible to implement residual bus simulation for ECUs. The product also offers functions for the analysis of bus communication.
