FlexConfig SDK

FlexConfig SDK

FlexConfig SDK is a .NET lib for the easy access of automotive bus systems in your own windows applications. The Library supports a wide range of automotive network description formats like AUTOSAR (.arxml) or CANdb. and together with the STAR ELECTRONICS FlexDevices or FlexCards we provide a simple and very powerful solution for this challenge.
FlexConfig Analyzer

FlexConfig Analyzer

The FlexConfig Analyzer software visualizes CAN, LIN or FlexRay data on a smartphone or tablet. For this, a wireless connection is established via Wi-Fi with a suitable bus interface.
FlexConfig RBS

FlexConfig RBS

FlexConfig RBS is a software to generate a hardware assisted RBS and Gateways. Several network description formats are supported. The generated RBS runs independently on a separate hardware.
