The Ixxat D-PDU API is a VCI 4 (Ixxat Virtual Communication Interface) driver add-on, providing a D-PDU interface for many different Ixxat PC boards and platforms. 
D-PDU is a standardized vehicle communication interface according to ISO 22900-2 (Vehicle Communication Interface), designed for automotive flash and diagnostic applications. 
Using the D-PDU API, compatible applications of various manufacturers can be easily executed and used with Ixxat PC interfaces and platforms.

Application examples – How PC interfaces are used

Mobile USB-to-CAN interface for easy CAN (FD) bus access enabling configuration, service and analysis
Powerful CAN (FD) plug-in boards enable connection of test/simulation system to automotive bus systems or devices
Wireless connection to automotive bus systems for flexible analysis, configuration and test
