Caution: High Voltage!

Softing HV-Equipment

Nowadays, the development of vehicle components and their integration into the vehicle are hardly conceivable without high-voltage technology. The demands made on the electronic testing and verification systems used for this purpose are extremely high and diverse – particularly in the case of electric and hybrid vehicles. Here, safe measurement, testing, verification and application in the high-voltage range are just as important as knowing how to handle complex ECUs or use transparent and reproducible test procedures. Ideally, the tests and checks run automatically with processes and test results recorded accordingly for the necessary proof and certification. This also requires suitable simulations and HV-compatible accessories.

VIN|ING 2000 – The High-Performance Manufacturing Solution

VIN|NIG 2000 – The High-Performance Manufacturing Solution

In vehicle manufacturing, very high demands are placed on timing, performance and system stability. For the vehicle communication interface (VCI), this means that the protocol stack for the communication software is executed in real time on the VCI without interruption and that communication with the host PC takes place via a powerful interface. Special requirements are also made of connection management to ensure and control secure access to a large number of VCIs. Softing´s answer to these high demands in manufacturing is the VCI VIN|ING 2000.

Efficient, Scalable Diagnostics on the Test Carrier – Even when Working at Home

Efficient, Scalable Diagnostics on the Test Carrier

Reading out and documenting vehicles during and at the end of a test day is extremely time consuming. An interface is plugged into the test carrier, the tester application is connected, and automatic or interactive tests are performed. The procedure is repeated – per vehicle and per readout time, for example before and after a test drive. The solution for efficient and scalable diagnostics even when working at home is Softing DTS.monaco in combination with the VCI VIN|ING 2000.

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.
