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 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 [...]

Simulate international power grids in your own workshop

18. April 2017|VEHICLE ELECTRONICS|

For one of our customer projects, we were able to develop a network simulation test bench that unifies all the energy sockets of the world. The goal was to gain experience in charging electro vehicles and to test this already in the early stages of development without having to travel around the world. The vehicle [...]

CAN-FD interface extends application of FlexCard PMC II

7. June 2016|VEHICLE ELECTRONICS|

The STAR COOPERATION is enhancing its already broad offering of interface cards for connecting automotive bus systems with test bench computers: FlexCard PMC II now comes with a CAN-FD extension for universal use in day-to-day testing. Due to developing the CAN-FD expansion for FlexCard PMC II, STAR’s Experts for Automotive Electronics can now offer the [...]
