Open Wireless MCUs with Full Access to Vehicle Networks

The neoOBD 2 LC is designed to be an open platform wireless OBD2 adapter. It features three options for wireless connectivity. ARM Cortex M4 Wi-Fi, Bluetooth BLE MCU, and NB-IoT / LTE-M1 LPWA cellular modem with built-in GPS. You have complete access to raw vehicle network data within these modules, via secure APIs that interface to Intrepid’s proven CAN, LIN, and KLINE drivers. You have the ability to provide the vehicle network data over Wi-Fi, Bluetooth BLE, and NB-IoT / LTE-M1 cellular modem to the Internet and other mobile devices.


  • OBD 2 interface to Wi-Fi, BLE, and NB-IoT / LTE-M1
  • OBD 2 interface to automotive IoT platforms and proprietary servers
  • Create your own OBD 2 interface with Internet and Bluetooth connections
  • Stream vehicle network data in realtime over the air
  • Secure OBD gateway for OEMs
  • General purpose PC interface for CANFD, LIN, and KLINE using Vehicle Spy 3

The Freedom to Create your own Automotive IoT Solution

The Texas Instruments SimpleLink™ Wi-Fi® CC3220SF Wi-Fi module inside the neoOBD 2 LC is compatible with popular IoT platforms, such as AWS IoT, Microsoft Azure IoT, IBM Watson IoT, and any other platforms and servers based on secure protocols such as HTTPS, SSL/TLS and MQTT. The neoOBD2 SDK provides examples and documentations to help you get started with your next automotive IoT project.

Vehicle Spy Application Software

Intrepid’s Vehicle Spy software fully supports the neoOBD 2 LC. With Vehicle Spy, users can monitor and transmit on all neoOBD 2 LC networks simultaneously. Vehicle Spy is required to configure standalone mode. Users can take advantage of the powerful interface to load databases and to write and debug scripts before downloading them to the device.

Standalone Logging, Scripting, Gateways and Simulation

In addition to working as a PC interface, the neoOBD 2 LC can operate in standalone mode. It can run real-time scripts, log data to internal flash memory, and simulate ECUs and gateways. These features also make it possible to run a script to reflash ECUs using data from flash memory.
