Introducing bFlash®

We’re proud to introduce you to bFlash®, a new, unique and revolutionary tool for automotive professionals, tuners and engine calibration engineers.

Since the bFlash® is so much more than just an ECU programming tool, it simply can’t be compared to any traditional flashtool. Despite Alientech KESSv2 / KTAG, Autotuner, Byteshooter NG, CMD Flashtec, Dimsport NEW-GENIUS / TRASDATA and Magic motorsport X17 being good tools for simple read/write operations, we found them to be missing many important features, both on the developer side as in daily use.

Instead of looking at this problem from a traditional point of view, we looked at the OEM tools, used by factory calibration engineers, what functions they have and what those tools could do. We found these manufacturer tools so superior, that we decided to create our own design based on those specifications. bFlash® is a a real innovation with many new functions and not yet another facelifted flashtool with fancy looks but no significant improvement.



The bFlash® is inspired from the same OEM hardware but with a tuner-oriented and user-friendly software interface, making it more practical an ultimately suited for tuners as their main equipment. Due to its superior specifications, the technologies used and the many new and innovative features, the bFlash® will revolutionize the remapping industry for the next 10 years. Our new features, will not only change the way vehicles are programmed, but also the way tuningfiles are being developed.

Due to the some high-end electronic components, needed for the extremely fast and powerful data processing, and the complexity of the electronic design used in the bFlash® hardware, there is an approximate 20 weeks period from order to delivery. All the tools are made to order, we don’t stock them and production capacity is limited because of our high quality standards. For this reason, there will be a waiting list for which we apologize to our customers, but we’re confident that once you start working with your new bFlash®, the long waiting period will be immediately forgotten.

The world’s top tuners are already bFlash users, join the elite and order your tool now !

History of bFlash®

Before 2011 we  worked with the traditional chiptuning tools for simple read/write operations and switched to the complex but fast OEM tools (like ETAS INCA, VECTOR CANape, Lauterbach…) for advanced development like emulation or debugging jobs. Having to work and adapt to so many different tools with sometimes very complex software could be stressfull and unpractical.

In the beginning of 2012 we came up with the idea of merging all this different hardware and software into one single solution that was practical, intuitive and easy to use. By making it link-up with other popular software programs like WinOLS from EVC, it's extremely suited for use by tuners.

By keeping all the OEM functionalities and technologies (S-CAN, FlexRay, SENT, LIN, PSI5, Ethernet,…)  it’s ensured that bFlash will be able to handle any automotive ECU up to 2030.
