Diagnostic Interfaces – EDIC Family

VCIs for diagnostic applications and flash programming at medium performance range

The interfaces of the EDIC family are available with a programming interface compliant with the D-PDU API standard ISO 22900-2. This enables simple integration into a D-Server in accordance with the standards ASAM MCD-3D/ISO 22900-3, although direct integration into a test application is also possible. The VCIs are also available with an API compliant with SAE J2534 so that they can be used as PassThru devices.

The EDIC interfaces are characterized by the incredibly secure communication mechanisms regardless of the PC operating system. Users have diagnostic interfaces at their disposal with various wired and wireless interfaces to the PC.



VCI with USB interface for use in engineering and testing.



VCI with PCI interface for use in testing and manufacturing.
