UPDATE: Vehicle Intelligence Platform Announced

As the technology in new vehicles continues to evolve and expand, more electrical bandwidth and connectivity has become necessary to ensure all the data-driven features can operate efficiently together within the overall vehicle network.

GM’s new Vehicle Intelligence Platform, or VIP, (formerly the Next Generation Digital Vehicle Platform) will be used to help power the next generation of GM models and systems, starting with the recently introduced 2020 Chevrolet Corvette and Cadillac CT5 and CT4, as well as the upcoming full-size Chevrolet, GMC and Cadillac SUVs.

The Vehicle Intelligence Platform is capable of managing up to 4.5 terabytes of data processing power per hour, which is a fivefold increase in capability over the current Global A electrical architecture. The new architecture will be able to support active safety systems, over-the-air updates, 5G networks, enhanced cybersecurity protections and EV technologies.

MDI 2 Required

The EL-52100 MDI 2 is required for control module programming, configuration and setup on vehicles equipped with the Vehicle Intelligence Platform. The MDI 1 does not have the capability to complete programming and setup procedures. Using an MDI 1 on these vehicles could result in erroneous data or failed programming events that could lead to unnecessary module replacement.

When Service Programming System (SPS) programming a module, the power mode needs to be Off with the vehicle fully asleep. Follow all SPS on-screen instructions. Ensure that the vehicle will not become awake during the programming event.
