Diagnostics & Flashing
Benefit From Comprehensive Solutions

Detailed ECU Diagnostics and Flashing in the Laboratory and in the Vehicle

The diagnostic test plays a crucial role in developing diagnostic functions in the ECU. CANape, Indigo and CANoe give you symbolic access to all data and functions that are accessible via the diagnostic protocol. A special description file supplies all diagnostic-specific information.

During ECU calibration, flashing is used both to update the application and to adapt the parameters in the ECU.


Symbiosis of Measurement, Calibration and Diagnostics

Structurized display of the supported diagnostic functions. All DTCs including the environment data are displayed.

In CANape, control elements for measuring and calibrating are configured by symbolic selection of signals and parameters. The measurement and calibration protocols used are completely transparent to users. Vector has fully applied this concept to diagnostic protocols in CANape. This means that the output parameters of diagnostic functions can be acquired like measurement signals and be displayed over time in the relevant display windows. Just like calibration parameters, you can insert the input parameters of diagnostic functions in calibration windows and modify them. In making parameter changes, the relevant diagnostic function is executed in the ECU.


Supporting You in Diagnostic Testing

The following tools simplify reliable ECU diagnostics in the laboratory and in the vehicle:

CANape’s integrated Diagnostic Feature Set gives you symbolic access to diagnostic data and services, providing the functionality of a full-fledged diagnostic tester
Easy to use diagnostic tester, which is largely self-configuring and conceals the complexity of the diagnostic protocols
Diagnostics on CAN and over IP with CANoe


Reliable Reprogramming of ECUs

During ECU calibration, flashing is used both to update the application and to adapt the parameters in the ECU. CANape supports you when flashing using CCP/XCP and diagnostic protocols with the help of vFlash projects. vFlash is an easy-to-use tool for programming of ECUs. It supports more than 50 different flash specifications with user-friendly templates.

Supporting You in Flashing

The following tools make it easier to reprogram your ECU reliably and quickly:

Flash programming with CCP and XCP
(Re-)Programming easily and quickly – over CAN, CAN FD, LIN, FlexRay, Ethernet (DoIP)
Embedded software for flashing programs and vehicle-related data over CAN, LIN, FlexRay or Ethernet
