Levels of Virtual ECUs

  • Automotives
  • SIL Testing



In the virtual world, you don’t have to wait for the hardware ECU to become available to start testing the software. Using virtual electronic control units (V-ECUs), you can start testing your ECU software during the very early development stage in the cloud or on your PC.

In this episode of Learning Bits, Barbara Kempkes, Product Manager of Production Software and Software-in-the-Loop Simulation, provides an overview of the different levels of V-ECUs and how they can be utilized to help you make your simulation tasks and test processes more efficient.
