Softing HSC

Codice prodotto: HC-HD-1400

Compact high-performance VCI with USB, LAN and WLAN for mobile manufacturing and after-sales service applications.


The HSC Interface is a further powerful VCI. With a compact design and WLAN/LAN/USB as interfaces to the PC as well as CAN, K-Line and Ethernet to the vehicle, the VCI is particularly well suited for future-proof mobile manufacturing and after-sales service applications.

Protocol Handling in the Interface

The vehicle protocols are handled directly in the interface. This ensures fast response times and reliable real-time behavior regardless of the PC operating system. The use of a two-processor solution consisting of a 550 MHz SoC and a 32-bit automotive microcontroller enables parallel operation of several communication channels as is often necessary for diagnostics and flash applications on the entire vehicle.

Software Interfaces

The communication protocols UDS (ISO 14229) and KWP 2000 (ISO 15765) are currently supported via the standardized D-PDU API (ISO 22900-2). The VCI can also be used as a PassThru device in acc. with SAE J2534. Together with the Diagnostic Tool Set DTS from Softing, an integral solution in accordance with the MCD-3D standard ISO 22900-3 can be realized with ODX technology.


With its WLAN interface, the HSC is designed for mobile use in after-sales service and in manufacturing. The WLAN chip set integrated on the SoC and two antennas are the basis of the highperformance integration of an Ethernet connection to the vehicle.


Software upgrades are also available for HSC ensuring it is always perfectly equipped for future applications. This is also the way to realize customer-specific software solutions.

Compact and Robust Design

The device is extremely compact and ruggedized thanks to the integration of the diagnostic connector into the housing made of impact-resistant plastic.
