For the second time in 2016, the STAR COOPERATION’s
 FlexConfig RBS software will undergo an important update. As of now, the established configuration tool for remaining bus simulations and gateways in the automotive area supports even more bus systems and offers additional features.

When engineers, developers and technicians want to generate gateway configurations or remaining bus simulations easily, quickly and partly automated, they can find a highly efficient and perfectly adjusted system for control unit and integration tests within the STAR COOPERATION’s product portfolio. Assisted by the FlexConfig RBS software, the compact and robust FlexDevice tools configure gateways and remaining bus simulations autonomously without a personal computer being necessary during operation. With the help of the manipulation editor, the user can actively influence the frames and signals to be sent at any given time. Visualizing bus data on a tablet or smartphone completed the package’s solutions portfolio so far.

New release includes FlexRay B

The now published release 4.2 once again expands the abilities of FlexConfig RBS. For instance, bus data can now also be logged on the FlexDevice-L, a part of the STAR COOPERATION’s FlexDevice product family. In doing so, the data stream is being saved in an MDF format on an internal SD card within the device. Furthermore, in addition to the CAN, CAN-FD, Ethernet, BroadR-Reach and FlexRay A-channel bus systems, the 4.2 version now also supports FlexRay’s B-channel in its entirety. Therefore, we have made a fully integrated solution available that makes generating, manipulating, visualizing and recording of signals possible with just one hardware device.
