New Diagnostic Interface VIN|ING 800: Softing Automotive Introduces Universal, Robust CAN/FD Interface

Haar near Munich, June 21, 2023 – Softing Automotive expands its Vehicle Communication Interface (VCI) portfolio with a universal, robust diagnostic interface via CAN/FD. The diagnostic interface VIN|ING 800 unites state-of-the-art hardware design for CAN/FD and maximum sturdiness with all-round impact protection at a highly attractive price. For many service applications requiring just one CAN interface, this device is the perfect choice as it provides a lean and at the same time powerful interface from the application to the vehicle. VIN|ING 800 can also be deployed to efficiently solve communication tasks in the engineering of vehicle systems.

The VCI has a CAN Layer 2 API as a programming interface and offers powerful communication mechanisms for lots of CAN applications. Local buffering and preprocessing on the VCI result in high performance and a reduction of time-critical tasks for the PC. The optional D-PDU API as a standardized programming interface provides applications with powerful multi-channel communication mechanisms with vehicle protocols, such as Diagnostics on CAN (ISO 15765) and UDS (ISO 14229). It also allows integration into diagnostic systems in accordance with ISO 22900 (MVCI).

The combination of the VIN|ING 800 with the universal service tester Softing TDX is an optimally coordinated solution. Customer-specific versions, such as alternative labeling and connectors to the vehicle, can be realized on request.
