Increase efficiency with parallel access to ECUs and vehicles! Discover how parallel testing and updating of ECU software can help you significantly enhance engineering efficiency, improve vehicle quality, increase the flexibility of software management, and enable faster adaptation to changing requirements.

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.

Efficient Diagnostic Testing with Simulation

Efficient Diagnostic Testing with Simulation

Testing and diagnosing modern vehicles is becoming increasingly complex. The evaluation of the data recorded during operation plays an important role here, as it forms the basis for diagnosing any errors that may occur. In the article, Softing shows how simulation methods can be used efficiently for the use of this data and the preparation of testing.

Mastering Flexibility in Flash Programming

Mastering Flexibility in Flash Programming

The flash programming of electronic control units (ECUs) in vehicles has now become widely accepted: There are anywhere between 3 and 120 ECUs depending on the market segment. These can usually be supplied with new software directly or via a gateway using a tester. This capability is used in a number of ways, although a vehicle interface currently has to be plugged in to mediate between the programming application and the ECUs. In the future, over-the-air updates will open up further possibilities.

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.

Individual test equipment for maximum reliability in engineering and tests

Test Equipment by Softing

A large number of different cables, adapters and peripheral simulations are used in the engineering of vehicle electronics, the testing of electronic and electrical components and in component integration into the complete vehicle. The use of standard products is rarely possible here. Test equipment specially adapted to the control unit, vehicle series or test environment is nearly always required.

Test Boards by Softing: Working as if you were working on a verhicle – but with full comfort!

Test Boards by Softing

A range of original components can be conveniently attached and connected to each other on test boards according to their target arrangement in the vehicle. This is the perfect way to subject, in particular, the cable harness and ECUs to complex networking and function tests in conjunction with real sensors, actuators and other subsystems. Test boards thus enable flexible tests for series validation – long before tests are possible on real vehicles.
