OEM and Development Features
has many uses beyond the independent repair shop. The CarDAQ-Plus was
designed to be a high performance development tool.
It performs the standard PassThru J2534 functionality, adds an internal 200MHz embedded Linux host,
an internal and optional external Compact Flash slot, and an internal web server for thin-client applications.
addition to acting as a laptop-to-vehicle PassThru device, it can also
host diagnostic and data logging applications on-board.
Compact Flash expansion
The CarDAQ-Plus has one internal and one optional external Compact Flash slot that can be used simultaneously.
external Compact Flash slot is optional and must be ordered at the time
of purchase. The Compact Flash expansion slots may also be used for
other CF peripherals,
as GPS receivers, expanded storage, modems, and any other CF card that
supports Linux. The CarDAQ-Plus will support up to 8GB of memory per
Compact Flash slot
Remote Diagnostics and Standalone operations
runs it's own operating system, embedded Linux, which allows it to be
used as a standalone tool without a PC attached during operation.
Linux installation includes a file and web server which could simplify
development of remote diagnostics and management applications.
Imagine writing your own C/C++ application to perform an on-road test.
program could access GPS compact flash card to capture location
information about the test-drive, or use a cellular modem and download
telemetry from live tests!
For standalone applications, this provides the features of a PC host and a PassThru device all in one package.
Tools available for development
