Flash Bootloader

Software for Reprogramming ECUs

The Vector Flash Bootloader gives you a universal and compact solution for reprogramming ECUs quickly, efficiently and securely. Reliable Flash Bootloaders from Vector have been in use worldwide for over 15-years, beginning with CAN and more recently with LIN, FlexRay, MOST and Ethernet bus systems.

You can obtain the Flash Bootloader in many OEM-specific variants and for many different microcontrollers. To meet your project requirements you can configure it with the PC-based configuration tool GENy and DaVinci Configurator Pro respectively.

The Flash Bootloader may be used in either conventional or AUTOSAR-conformant ECUs. You can also update ECUs with POSIX-compatible operating systems such as Linux in a time-saving and efficient way.

Flash Bootloader components:

  • Bootloader: Resides in the ECU and contains an OEM-specific download manager as well as a bus-specific communication stack.
  • Flash driver: HIS device driver for the hardware used
  • Flash scripts: For easy control of the download process

To control the flashing process you can integrate flash scripts into a PC-based flash tool, e.g. vFlash from Vector.
