The DiagRA® MCD Toolset is an applications and diagnostics tool-box for electronic control units in the automotive industry. It comprises of a set of three software options: DiagRA® M, DiagRA® C and DiagRA® D.
The significant advantage for the user is in particular the common use of the device driver for the interface hardware, of protocols and parsers for the descriptive files in A2L or DBC format. Gathered data can be used by all options. Therefore it is possible to acquire and display diagnostic measurement values graphically using DiagRA© M and, simultaneously, to calibrate with DiagRA© C.
On-line operation can be started and terminated by all three parts of the Toolsets. Thereby, if technically possible, the same interface hardware can be used. Nevertheless, for example with several CAN buses, several interfaces can be used. The settings necessary for this can be carried out centrally.
During the integration it was particularly important to pay attention to the separate execution of individual options in the Toolset. The former diagnostics tool DiagRA® is now completely represented in the option DiagRA® D. For the Upgrade only an active software maintenance contract is necessary. Each present user of one of the three options can simply buy one of the others and add them to the installation he already has.
