EDICblue - Bluetooth Interface for Vehicle Electronics

VCI with Bluetooth interface for use in testing and after-sales service

Diagnostic interfaces from Softing are based on the tried and tested EDIC® hardware and software platform. With its Bluetooth® interface and compact design, EDICblue is perfect for use in mobile applications during test drives, in manufacturing and in service.

 

Areas of Application

  • Test drive
  • Manufacturing
  • Service
 

Advantages

  • Optimized housing design with integrated diagnostic connector
  • 2 independent channels: 1 x CAN and 1 x ISO 9141
  • Data preprocessing and protocol handling in the interface
  • Bluetooth interface to the PC
  • Status display via LEDs
  • Power management

Integrated Diagnostic Connector

The compact housing concept with an integrated SAE-J1962 connector makes it possible to connect EDICblue directly to the diagnostic connector of the vehicle. Complicated and troublesome arrangement of additional cables is thus a thing of the past.

Wireless

The integrated Bluetooth interface connects the vehicle to the notebook, desktop or test system doing away with the need for cables.

Protocol handling in the Interface

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. Diagnostic interfaces from Softing are based on the tried and tested EDIC® hardware and software platform. With its Bluetooth® interface and compact design, EDICblue is perfect for use in mobile applications during test drives, in manufacturing and in service.

Software Interfaces

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.

Flexibility

To ensure it is always perfectly equipped for future applications, EDICblue can be upgraded with software updates. This is also the way to realize customer-specific software solutions.
