The V_Link01 is an OBD to UART interpreter IC designed to provide bi-directional half-duplex
communication with the vehicle’s On-Board Diagnostic system (OBD-II). It supports all legislated OBD-II protocols, as well as two proprietary networks: for GM Single Wire CAN (for GMLAN), and for Ford Medium Speed CAN (MS CAN).
A wealth of information can be obtained by tapping into the OBD bus, including the status of the malfunction indicator light (MIL), diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), inspection and maintenance (I/M) information, freeze frames, VIN, hundreds of real-time parameters, and more.The V_ Link01 is fully compatible with the de facto industry standard ELM327 command set. Based on a 32-bit processor core, the V_ Link01 offers more features and better performance than any other ELM327 compatible IC.
■ Rich instruction set, compatible with more APP software.
-- Fully compatible with ELM's AT command set;
-- Fully compatible with STN's ST command set;
-- Expanded 7 AT commands for HS-CAN, MS-CAN, SW-CAN;
--39 VT macro commands, some instructions are equivalent to the effect of several AT and ST instructions, simplifying the communication steps.
■ Multiple protocols
--15 ELM format protocols;
-- 23 STN format protocols;
-- Up to 64 user-defined protocols.
