Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing is indispensable in the control unit software development process and has been an integral part of numerous companies’ development processes for years. HIL simulation is regarded as the tried-and-tested method for function, component, integration and network tests for the entire system. This holds especially for model-based design. Ever since HIL testing has started to be applied, users have continuously streamlined their development processes. This paper describes the changing requirements for HIL simulation, and how these changes need to be addressed by a new HIL technology.
