Two become one: 800 volts for an electric car

8. March 2018|VEHICLE ELECTRONICS|

STAR COOPERATION embarked on an ambitious mission: to construct a battery for an electric vehicle using two 400-volt batteries. It was no easy feat. The client that commissioned the project is a major developer of drive batteries and required an 800-volt unit for an electric vehicle prototype. Since it only had 400-volt batteries in its [...]

An end-of-line test bench for the ultimate sound

8. March 2018|VEHICLE ELECTRONICS|

A proper sports car requires a bold sound. The exhaust gas system needs to produce the right tone at all times, both on the racing track and in the city. A renowned manufacturer of sports cars is using the end-of-line test bench by STAR COOPERATON to ensure that their exhaust gas systems work perfectly. Three [...]

FlexConfig RBS to support LIN

8. March 2018|VEHICLE ELECTRONICS|

Create gateway configurations or restbus simulations easily, quickly and, in some cases, even automatically: engineers, developers and technicians have been using the FlexConfig RBS software for years. On April 30, 2018, STAR will release its latest version, FlexConfig RBS 4.4., which features many innovative functions. Release: what’s new in FlexConfig RBS 4.4 Support for the [...]

A powerful car battery: more energy for many technical components

8. March 2018|VEHICLE ELECTRONICS|

Powerful, lightweight and extremely robust: STAR has developed a new battery for a car manufacturer. Modern automotive manufacturers install more and more measuring instruments to test cars, and these devices all require energy. This is why our southern Germany-based customer needed more power for their vehicles. Full power under extreme testing conditions STAR Electronics successfully [...]

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 [...]
