Advantages of Integrating the OBD2 software:
- OBD II software stack supports all physical layers – CAN, K-Line, ISO9141, PWM and VPW (J1850)
- Pre-tested software stack: OBD2 software stack has been tested for integration in both automotive control units and tooling applications
- This OBD II stack is designed to support all OBD modes
- Platform independent – OBD2 stack can be integrated with Non-OS, RTOS, and Linux environments
- This automotive on-board diagnostics software stack has been pre-tested for integrations with multiple embedded platforms – Freescale, Renesas, PIC, Fujitsu and more.
- Our OBD2 protocol stack has been designed to ensure reduction in time to market and development costs for the customers
Ans. OBD2 (On-Board Diagnostics) stack, designed and developed by our expert automotive developers, is a set of embedded software services implemented in compliance with ISO 15031 standards for automotive.
This pre-tested and pre-packaged stack can be readily integrated with your diagnostic application for emissions control and monitoring of major engine components.
This stack is best suited for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles. We also have expertise and experience to support OBD/OBD II implementation over various physical network layers.
Ans. When you purchase OBD2 software stack from us, following pre-tested OBD modules and drivers are included in a standard package:
- ISO 15031 standard complaint OBD services
- ISO 15765 standard complaint OBD over CAN module (CAN TP Layer)
- VPW/PWM drivers to support OBD over J1850
- ISO 14230 complaint UART/K-Line drivers to support OBD over K-Line
- ISO 9141-2 complaint UART drivers to support OBD over ISO9141-2
Ans. In addition to our software package, we also offer integration support which includes integration of the stack to your hardware.
Our automotive team will provide end-to-end support for customization and integration of the OBD2 software stack as per the business need of your target application.
Ans. Verification and validation is being done post integration of the on-board diagnostics stack with your target application.
Ans. The OBD II stack solution, designed by our embedded software developers, can be implemented either as Server or Client as per your project/application requirement.
We can either integrate it into an automotive control unit as a Server or in any external tool (OBD2 scanner or telematics head unit) as a Client.
Ans. No. Our OBD2 software solution is hardware platform independent..
Our software development team has designed OBD services (ISO 15031) and OBD Over CAN module (ISO15765) as platform agnostic software
Ans. Yes. Embedded C based software code has been developed in complaince with MISRA-C standard for automotive applications.
We are a CMMI Level 3 organization. We follow industry complaint project management and software development best practice.
The OBD2 source code has also been tested using the third party tools.
Ans. With more than 10 years of business experience and automotive domain expertise, we have partnered with Global OEMs’ and Automotive Suppliers for multiple projects of OBD (and other automotive stacks) integration projects
Our team has collaborated for end-of-line testing and OBD2 implementations across multiple OEM platforms and tooling applications.
Ans. Post-production support for a specific period of time after the delivery of the On-board diagnostics (OBD2) stack.
The SLA, warranty period and number of months of support is included in the contract based on the discussions with customer’s team and project requirements.
Ans. We work on the business model of one-time licensing that provides the customer with source code and IP rights.
With IP rights, customers can implement/re-use the OBD2 stack for multiple projects or platforms.
Ans. Yes, a customized contract can be drafted based on your business requirements and budget allocated to the project.

OBD II Software Stack Business Impact: Customer Success Story
Business Challenge: Design, development and testing of OBD II stack for Engine Control Unit
Our team of automotive embedded developers designed following OBD modules after the initial requirement gathering workshop with the automotive customer:
- Diagnostic System Manager (DSM) with Fault Code Memory: DSM modules collects test results reported by the monitoring functions. Current fault states and derived error memory entries are stored in standard form and is readily accessible to the application software and Tester communication.
- OBD Diagnostics Services: This module provides external access to fault code memory and other emission relevant data. A generic OBD scan tool can be connected to the ECU to read emission related data.
