DELIVERING VEHICLE DATA TO THE CONNECTED WORLD

THE TELEMATIC MICROCONTROLLER

YOUR GATEWAY TO OEM VEHICLE DATA

WHAT IS NC1701?

Nebula Systems has created the first dedicated controller for use in Telematic embedded systems – NC1701. It uniquely enables companies in the Connected Car space to access any vehicle’s OEM data without requiring previous knowledge of vehicle ECU communication protocols.

Built on 25 years worth of automotive data engineering expertise NC1701, when embedded into a telematic device, completely eliminates the need for any costly and time consuming vehicle reverse engineering, and leaves our clients free to concentrate on monetizing their business models.

When embedded in a partner’s telematic device, whether it’s an OBD dongle or black-box unit, connected to the CAN Bus,  NC1701 handles all vehicle communications via OEM proprietary protocols covering cars from 2008 onwards.

Our NC1701 chipset is based on an advanced PIC32MZ microcontroller from Microchip Technology Inc., world leaders in silicon chip devices. It has a 9mm x 9mm footprint with 124 pins. Full specifications can be found HERE

WE SPEAK "CAR"

NC1701 has many advanced features for most Telematic and Connected Car applications, and when combined with Nebula’s MECH5 cloud platform, NC1701 truly becomes able to “speak” to a car in its own native language.

NC1701 Service Levels:

PID

ENHANCED OEM PID READING

SERVICE LEVEL 1

Access OEM parameter data like:

  • Real Odometer
  • Fuel level
  • Time to next service
  • Distance to next service
  • Tyre Pressure info
  • Door status
  • Vehicle occupancy
  • Seatbelt status
  • and many more…

ENHANCED OEM DTC READING

SERVICE LEVEL 2

Vehicle Health Check:

Read all OEM Data Trouble Codes (DTCs) from across all ECUs in a vehicle, in a single sweep.

NC1701 chip retrieves OEM trouble codes and MECH5 APIs can be used for code translation.

Remote

FULL REMOTE DIAGNOSTICS

SERVICE LEVEL 3

Virtual Scantool:

NC1701 can be connected dynamically with the MECH5 diagnostic platform to allow full remote diagnostics.

It’s like standing next to the car with a powerful scan-tool plugged in!

Standard Features:

STANDARD OBD2 COMMANDS

NC1701 is supplied fully compatible with all OBD2 Standard Protocols.

This means that even without a Configuration File, NC1701 can read all generic OBD2 (SAE J1979) PIDs and DTCs

OEM VIN READING

NC1701 provides OEM VIN reading capability. This means you now have the potential to read VINs when not available through standard OBDII requests.

ADVANCED IGNITION DETECTION

NC1701 overcomes many ignition detection issues faced when using an “ordinary” telematic OBD Dongle.

By using MECH5 to provide configuration it is able to read Ignition status from multiple sources providing further options for Virtual Ignition Detection.

ADVANCED LOW POWER MODES

NC1701 can be configured to enter “power saving mode” and can “wake up” using different sources:

  • Battery voltage change
  • CAN bus activity
  • Advanced ignition sense signal

LAYERED SECURITY

Layered security prevents any unauthorised access to the vehicle OBD by embedding encrypted scripts within the NC1701 itself upon configuration, thereby preventing any OBD hacking

FULLY MULTIPLEXED DESIGN

NC1701 is capable of handling multiple CAN buses and ISO lines, making it compatible with more vehicle models and ECUs than standard offerings.

NOTE: The NC1701 needs to be embedded using the suggested reference design for some of these features to work properly.
