Current trends for Sales, After Sales and Automotive Electronics

Gateways and RBS times two

6. October 2017|VEHICLE ELECTRONICS|

The Flex Device family has a new member. For years, engineers, developers and technicians have been trusting the series' tools, with which they can perform gateways and remaining bus simulations reliably. After connected with a power source, the compact and robust devices perform configured gateways and remaining bus simulations autonomously. Therefore, a personal computer is [...]

High voltage measurement technology – a “powerful” area in automotive electronics

5. October 2017|VEHICLE ELECTRONICS|

Electrification of drive methods is ever increasing. No matter whether it is a hybrid, fuel cell or battery concepts for electric drive, it only works with high voltages. Safety, consumption as well as voltage and current behaviors have to be tested and validated - a "powerful" topic at meanwhile 1,000 V and 300 A conducting [...]

Transmitting sensor data safely with SENT

3. October 2017|VEHICLE ELECTRONICS|

Everything is becoming digitized, communicating with sensors as well. Transmitting sensor data safely and cost-efficiently is more and more safeguarded today by using the SENT protocol (Single Edge Nibble Transmission, SAE J2716). The serial interface, standardized since 2007, facilitates substituting analog interfaces and digitally transmitting data with the corresponding sensors. Tools for sensor simulation Information [...]

Successful journey for almost ten years: PWM generator by STAR

1. October 2017|VEHICLE ELECTRONICS|

Almost ten years ago, in 2008, STAR COOPERATION's Experts in Automotive Electronics were all set to go. For, our customer VW needed a mobile device to control so-called intelligent valves in its test benches. At the project start for our PWM generator, we defined the requirements for this mobile device together. Initially, we implemented two [...]

New service by STAR: Measuring Technology Engineering

30. June 2017|VEHICLE ELECTRONICS|

One vehicle and thousands of contact points – a problem that leads to high loss of efficiency when in vehicle measurement. Therefore, our engineering specialist, together with the Experts in Automotive Electronics, have been offering an all-round carefree package in measuring technology engineering as of late. Comprehensive support in vehicle measuring technology This comprehensive support [...]

STAR goes green – with solar energy

16. June 2017|STAR INTERNAL, VEHICLE ELECTRONICS|

There is a lot going on at our Sindelfingen location. In our EE workshop, we convert vehicles and we build testing systems and vehicles. And tailor cables to the specific needs of our customers. And since April, we have been producing something else there as well: our own solar energy! At the start of April, [...]

New special tool for automation technology

8. June 2017|VEHICLE ELECTRONICS|

Based on our performance PWM generator FlexGen-M PWM, we have developed a cap rail module for the switchboard especially for application in automation technology. The FlexGen-M PWM remote is perfectly suitable for controlling hatches, actuators, valves, smaller direct-current motors and other actuators on test benches. One of our cap rail module's highlights is the possibility [...]

Spontaneous, flexible and crazy – that’s why STAR is the perfect partner for us

19. May 2017|VEHICLE ELECTRONICS|

In conversation: Wolfgang Bern, Director of Operations and CEO of Local Motors Berlin GmbH For Wolfgang Bern, Director of Operations and CEO of Local Motors Berling GmbH, innovative mobility concepts are the future. He has no doubt about it, though he considers many of them to be pure theory at this point in time. Although some [...]

World record, art and automotive electronics at STAR inhouse exhibition and STAR Insight

16. May 2017|STAR INTERNAL, VEHICLE ELECTRONICS|

  The weather was fair, the food was good. And for the first time, we had our own "STAR Home Brew". The condition for this year's STAR inhouse exhibition and STAR Insight 2, taking place the same day, were great. But also the actual agenda was grounds for interest and a good atmosphere at the [...]

New STAR workshop location provides short distances

8. May 2017|VEHICLE ELECTRONICS|

It is an intrinsic part of STAR's service approach to follow our customers to wherever they need us. Since the start of 2017, we have been offering our workshop services also in Heimsheim, in close proximity to our customer. We have extended our existing facilities in Sindelfingen and Obertürkheim by another 400 square meters. Plus [...]
