Diagnostics and Flashing
Increase Your Development Efficiency Even More!

Tools for Diagnostics and Flashing

Vector supports you with concerted diagnostic and flashing tools, that increase efficiency and at the same time improve the quality in the development process.

The diagnostic tool support ranges from specifying diagnostics, generating ECU auto code up to integration, validating and diagnostic testing.  An off-the-shelf flash tool covers all use-cases throughout the entire lifecycle from ECU flashing up to flash parties after production.

Open interfaces and standards such as AUTOSAR, DoIP, WWH-OBD, ODX and UDS are supported perfectly.

Tool Chain

Tool Chain for the Diagnostic Development Process

V-Model of the Automotive Diagnostic Development Process

The V-model shows Vector´s powerful software tools that are suitable for every phase of the complete automotive diagnostic development process: Beginning with the specification, continuing with implementation of ECU software, and finishing with integration and functional testing.

Interested in Diagnostics?

Vector has been a partner with most of the OEMs and suppliers in different stages of developing ECUs. Diagnostics is also a part of the ECU development and we have an entire toolchain dedicated to diagnostics focused on authoring, validating and testing of diagnostics as well as reprogramming/flashing. Register today for a discussion and we will follow up with you on your request. If you are an individual engineer, we can set up WebEx meetings or travel to your facility depending on the location. If you have a group that is interested, we can set up a tech day at a location of your preference for a discussion.
