SystemDesk is a system architecture tool that provides sophisticated and extensive support for modeling AUTOSAR architectures and systems for application software. Additionally, SystemDesk generates virtual ECUs (V-ECUs) out of the application software. The V-ECUs can be used as units under test with the dSPACE simulation platforms, such as the PC-based simulation platform VEOS for validating the ECU software.
These software demo videos give you a deeper insight into the functions of SystemDesk.
Webinar Recording: This webinar demonstrates how to develop ECU software from the software architecture to the basic software with SystemDesk and EB tresos Studio.
Webinar Recording: This webinar demonstrates how to generate virtual electronic control units (V-ECUs) based on AUTOSAR, including the integration of basic software components.
Webinar Recording: This webinar, hosted by dSPACE and Elektrobit, provides a basic introduction to the up-and-coming AUTOSAR standard for developing in-vehicle software.
To optimize cooperation with the electronic control unit suppliers, PSA decided to make the development process for drivetrain ECUs AUTOSAR-compliant. To do this efficiently, PSA set up a tool chain that seamlessly supports elementary process steps from creating the architecture to actual implementation. Several AUTOSAR-compliant production projects have since been successfully completed.
From the very beginning, dSPACE has actively supported the development and widespread use of the AUTOSAR standard and has inspired many customers to work with dSPACE’s AUTOSAR-supporting tools. The many successful projects and innovative developments encourage dSPACE to further boost AUTOSAR support. Joachim Stroop, Lead Product Manager and AUTOSAR expert at dSPACE, gives insight into the current activities.
Classic hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation uses the real electronic control units (ECUs) to test whether their software functions correctly. Now virtual validation and virtual ECUs are providing new potential for more efficient, high-quality HIL simulation tests.
From the System Design Idea to AUTOSAR Architecture with Basic Software Modules.
In model-based development, software is developed at a high level of abstraction, i.e., as a model, and the C code implementation is automatically generated from the model. The high degree of abstraction allows intuitive application development and increases development efficiency.
SystemDesk is a system architecture tool that provides sophisticated and extensive support for modeling AUTOSAR architectures and systems for application software. Comprehensive graphical support facilitates the first use but also enables efficient and error-reduced working during large-scale projects. Additionally SystemDesk makes validating AUTOSAR-based system architectures possible at an early development stage. Therefore, virtual ECUs (V-ECUs) are generated out of the application software and used as units under test with the dSPACE simulation platforms, such as the PC-based simulation platform VEOS for validating the ECU software.
1) SystemDesk 4.x only
The SystemDesk Modeling Module enables the modeling of AUTOSAR software architectures and systems containing one or more networked AUTOSAR ECUs. It supports the software architecture development process from modeling software components (SWCs) to specifying system aspects including the hardware topology and network communication.
For virtual validation applications, the SystemDesk V-ECU Generation Module lets you model and generate virtual ECUs (V-ECUs). V-ECUs enable you to test the system's overall behavior with either the PC-based simulation platform VEOS or the hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulator SCALEXIO® as soon as the implementation with C code is available.
Both SystemDesk versions include numerous features that support your development process:
