Testing and Debugging the establishing of tester ECU communication with Softing DTS.monaco

Softing DTS.monaco Use Case: Testing and Debugging the establishing of tester ECU communication

Regardless of the integration level of software and ECUs, com­munication problems along the OSI communication layers result in specific challenges for diagnostic experts. These problems are critical for the remaining life cycle of the vehicle because, for example, in manufacturing, this behavior can lead to delays in or an entire absence of vehicle programming.

DIAGNOSTICS 4.0 by Softing – Order free info poster!

Remote-Diagnostics becomes “Diagnostics 4.0“ – With more than 100 ECUs in the vehicle, pressure is increasing to ensure more efficient diagnostics of these ECUs. In parallel to this development, the dependence on ECU functions in many instances today makes reliable statements in diagnostics increasingly difficult – which means that the quality of diagnostics overall must increase. The answer to these challenges are called remote diagnostics and cloud diagnostics.

UDS information poster – Order now for free!

UDS (Unified Diagnostic Service) is based on the standards KWP2000 for K-Line and CAN. It was developed with the goal of standardizing different implementations of the predecessor standards and new requirements stemming from further developments in technology and new standards to form one generally valid diagnostic protocol. UDS describes the layer 7 protocol (diagnostic services) but is based on an extended version of the diagnostic protocol of KWP2000 on CAN (ISO 15765-2).

Information poster for free | OTX – Open Test sequence eXchange format OTX describes a sequence language for exchanging diagnostic sequences in the ECU life cycle. The actual linguistic scope (core) is tailored to the particular diagnostic application with standardized extensions, but is also easy to extend with proprietary solutions for other applications.

DoIP information poster – Order now for free!

Information poster for free | DoIP – standardized vehicle diagnostics over Ethernet With Diagnostics over IP, diagnostic services introduced over UDS are used over TCP/IP and Ethernet. This enables much higher data rates than with CAN, representing great potential for savings both in terms of time and expenses in the case of complex diagnostic tasks and flash applications.
