Friendly Reminder for those Requesting Software - See Differences and Requirements

E-Series & R05x Mini:

  • ECU Data Files = SP-Daten
  • NCS Expert = Coding Software
  • WinKFP = Programming (Flashing) Software
  • EDIABAS = Low Level ECU Communication Software used by NCS Expert & WinKFP
Fxx- / Ixx- / Gxx-Series, Mini (F05x/F06x), & Rolls-Royce:
  • Interface = ENET Cable (OBDII to RJ45 Ethernet) or ICOM
  • ECU Data Files = PSdZData
  • E-Sys = Coding Software
  • E-Sys = Programming (Flashing) Software
ICOM

  • MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS:
    • Windows 7-10 Computer
    • ISTA+: 22 GB Installation + > 2 GB free space to run (Diagnostics Only).
      • Additional 70 GB SDP & ICOM to program (Excludes E-series)
