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.

Efficient Fault Simulation – Automated, documented short-circuit and open load tests of ECU on-board diagnostics

Efficient Fault Simulation by Softing

In daily operation, ECUs in the vehicle are exposed to a wide range of environmental influences, such as vibrations, strongly fluctuating ambient temperatures and high humidity. The components must therefore be able to handle all conceivable faults. For the test, these faults are simulated on the ECU pin and the respective behavior and diagnostic entry documented. Typically, such fault simulations are used for function tests during development, for testing, release and validation of ECUs and components, as well as for integration validation during HiL testing or at the Functional Mock-Up (FMU).

Pole-Position with the Telematics Gateway xTCU

Pole-Position with the Telematic Gateway xTCU

With the xTCU telematics gateway from Globalmatix in combination with Memotec measurement technology – comprehensive information everywhere in real time. In racing, it is often just tiny details that make the difference between victory and defeat. In addition to the driver’s skill, it also depends on the racing team having the appropriate expertise. Among other things, data acquisition and measurement technology is installed in the vehicle in order to constantly monitor and ultimately optimize it.

Mastering Test Complexitiy with Individual Test Systems by Softing

Test Systems by Softing

It is a long journey from the start of engineering to the installation of all vehicle components and ECUs in the production vehicle. Comprehensive testing of the electronic components during the entire engineering process is essential. This is the only way to thoroughly safeguard and optimize hardware and software functions. Errors can be detected and remedied quickly – the earlier the better.

SOVD – The Diagnostic Standard of Tomorrow

SOVD - Service Oriented Vehicle Diagnostics

Due to current megatrends such as autonomous driving, significantly higher computing power is required in the vehicle than can be provided by today's ECUs. Consequently high-performance computers (HPCs) are being installed in the vehicle to implement both centralized control and diagnostic functions. Standardization of the interface is therefore an obvious step, and is currently being carried out in ASAM e.V. under the name SOVD (Service Oriented Vehicle Diagnostics).

Invitation to the Virtual Softing Automotive Convention | May 5-6, 2021

Invitation to the Virtual “Softing Automotive Convention” | May 5-6, 2021

Invitation to the Virtual Softing Automotive Convention on May 5-6, 2021 | Due to the severe restriction of personal contact options since last year, we had to completely rethink events and customer appointments. With a creative digitalization concept based on current technology, we have created a virtual space that offers us the ideal event location. It allows our customers and partners to experience software solutions and exhibits in the office or at home.

Softing Gains Softwarehelden as a Strategic Partner

Softing Gains Softwarehelden as a Strategic Partner

The two Softing subsidiaries Globalmatix and Softing Automotive have today announced a strategic cooperation with digitalization experts Softwarehelden GmbH & Co. KG. In the past, the three companies have worked together on projects that have been implemented successfully and have now decided to bundle their core competencies in a cooperation. Customers will benefit from the perfect interaction of innovative hardware and intelligent software solutions.

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.
