Cascade, the "Car Scanner Device Emulator", allows you to use the same diagnostic software that runs on high-end "Hi-Scan Pro" and "Carman Scan I" car scanners to diagnose your car, with only your PC or notebook computer and a very affordable generic USB diagnostic interface. Cascade supports K/L and K+CAN 1. 4 interfaces with an FTDI serial-to-USB converter chip. Cascade generally supports all vehicles allowing diagnosis via K/L or CAN bus. The support for specific models depends on the diagnostic software being used. The Hi-Scan Pro software releases support Hyundai or Kia vehicles sold on the American market from model year 1990 up to about 2007; for Carman Scan I software, the manufacturer provides a vehicle coverage list; it supports virtually all makes and models of vehicles, up to about model year 2010.
