New project: Flash Online - flash memory emulator (29F200 / 400 / 800)

По многочисленным запросам, была начата разработка нового проекта: эмулятор памяти реального времени для ЭБУ с 16-битной флеш памятью, типа 28F200/400/800 и 29F200/400/800 (256-1024кБ).

Assigned targets:

  • Real time tuning!
  • Online software support - TunerPRO RT
  • Support for hardware table / map tracing (Address hit tracing)
  • Work with any software through CobraRTP Utility, (read / write firmware in .bin format)
  • The ability to upload and use 2 firmware (full) with subsequent switching in real time without the participation of a PC (dual mode Dual-mode)

What does it give and what is the difference from “firmware” via OBD connector (in boot mode)?

Indeed, most ECUs with this type of memory (except 28Fxxx) are easily "flashed" through the diagnostic connector (OBD), which does not require intervention in the hardware of the control unit. But, if you need not just load the finished firmware into the ECU, but adjust the ECU for an engine with a non-standard configuration?

Online ECU tuning in TunerPRO

Введение

В данной статье речь пойдет о тюнинге ЭБУ Motronic (Bosch), GM, DSM (Mitsubishi), Jetronic и т.д.: BMW, Audi, Volkswagen, Volvo, Chevrolet и не только, с внешней памятью EPROM: 27c128, 27c256, 27c512, 27f512 и т.п. Это относительно уже устаревшие ЭБУ автомобилей 80-90-х г.в. Многие тюнеры заявят, что данные ЭБУ не “чипуемые” или настройка данных ЭБУ весьма затруднительна, и лучшее решение это установка “спортивного” блока управления типа MegaSquirt, Vems, AEM, Haltech и т.д., но в силу аппаратной примитивности к счастью в настоящее время для этих авто имеются способы полноценной онлайн настройки. Для этого существуют эмуляторы памяти, которые позволяют заметить чип памяти с возможностью изменения дампа памяти (прошивки ЭБУ) в режиме реального времени посредством специального программного обеспечения для редактирования калибровок. Преимуществами настройки штатного блока управления в отличии от установки внешнего, являются: сохранение штатной системы диагностики; отсутствие необходимости в замене или переработке штатной проводки; отсутствие необходимости в замене или дополнении датчиков; нет необходимости в согласовании бортовых блоков управления с ЭБУ двигателя.

ExTuner: AFR + EGT meter. Exhaust gas tuning

Innovate, AEM UEGO

We did not stop at real-time ECU programming and decided to start expanding our narrow specialization in the field of devices for tuning ICE control systems, and the next product was ExTuner - a system for measuring and monitoring the parameters of the air-fuel mixture (A / F Ratio) and temperature exhaust gases (EGT), as well as additional functions, such as connecting most of the sensors to monitor additional parameters (for example, boost pressure, coolant temperature, oil, etc.); signal emulation of a narrow-band oxygen sensor (0-1V); support Innovate serial protocol (LC-1 / LM-1,2) for the ability to output AFR readings to any software that supports this protocol and others.

Background. What attention was paid to when creating

It took more than a year to develop this device, when the release dates were outlined in half a year after writing the first line of code. Why? The fact is that most of the time was spent on creating a competent controller for a wideband oxygen sensor (hereinafter AFR), namely, great attention was paid to the accuracy of readings and reliability. The fact is that initially the accuracy of the AFR controller system was based on the use of the internal calibration resistance of the sensor, the resistance of which is selected during production, depending on the individual characteristics of the sensor, and during operation, the controller automatically takes into account this resistance to correct the readings. This approach is the simplest, but with its own nuances, which we will discuss below.

CobraRTP R4 + emulator series. Overview, features and what's new

CobraRTP

The implementation of a new revision of real-time emulators CobraRTP R4 + has begun!
This revision of all versions of the CobraRTP emulators has significant improvements in comparison with previous versions, namely:

  1. Complete absence of additional power sources (batteries).
    Starting with revision R4.0, all versions of CobraRTP emulators have a more advanced memory type (NVRAM). Of course, this significantly increases the level of reliability and practicality of the device.
  2. The outdated 8-bit AVR processor has been replaced by a modern, much more powerful 32-bit ARM processor, with the transition to which some performance and compatibility issues with individual ECUs have been resolved.
  3. Reduced dimensions of the printed circuit board, due to the use of a smaller overall element base and also due to the absence of a battery.

CobraRTP Honda Edition R4

Moates demon

Несмотря на трудности связанные с пандемией COVID-19 мы закончили разработку и полное тестирование новой ревизии CobraRTP Honda Edition — R4!
This version, unlike the previous ones (R2-R3) does not have an additional power source (battery). R4 uses a more advanced type of memory, without the need for an additional power source for storing data (non-volatile).
