CAN & LIN Interface for Vehicle Electronics
VCI4 VEHICLE COMMUNICATIONS MODULE
The Sorion VCi4 (Vehicle Communications Interface) is a high performance interface for advanced vehicle diagnostics.
The VCi4 is a micro-processor based system that is specifically designed for the communicating, controlling and testing of bus based vehicle systems and sub-systems. It can operate as a standalone unit or installed in a Sorion test rack.
The VCi4 enables customer specific software solutions to be implemented.
Having CAN, LIN interfaces as well as analogue and isolated digital I/O the VCi4 allows integration to external systems.
The unit has an opto-isolated USB interface for programming and integration as well as status LEDs.
VCi4 units are currently deployed in a number of automotive assembly and test projects worldwide:
- Diagnostic applications in engineering, manufacturing
- Test and validation
- Functional ECU tests and communication tests
- Module Configuration
- Seat/Door/Window Test
- Convenience Function Testing
- LIN Based mood lighting
- Specific Fault Code Clearing
- PC / PLC to vehicle interface
