SystemDesk acts as the ideal basis for your software-in-the-loop (SIL) process. Based on your existing ECU code, you can create virtual ECUs that make it possible for you to execute and test your code in a cost-effective SIL simulation. If you want to model a new, classic AUTOSAR architecture or modify an existing one, SystemDesk offers powerful yet easy-to-use AUTOSAR architecture tools.

In this free webinar recording, dSPACE and Elektrobit demonstrate how basic software modules can be integrated in a virtual ECU.
As the complexity of a system increases, new measures are required to properly validate its functions. This is why Volkswagen is using virtualization more than ever in its validation processes.
The Global Electrical Engineering and Software - Virtual Engineering Team (EE&SW VE Team) of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is implementing a new and improved software development and test platform that embraces agile technology practices and virtualization capabilities to enable early validation.
Testing new functions as soon as they become available – a task that requires flexibility and the frontloading of tests. For this purpose, Volkswagen relies on automatically generated virtual ECUs. The dSPACE tools SystemDesk and VEOS help developers generate and simulate the software.
Safety, efficiency, and availability are the core requirements for commercial vehicles. Technology supplier WABCO has implemented a consistent process to optimize the development of safety-critical, reliable systems. It is based on a comprehensive tool chain in which SystemDesk and TargetLink pave the way to AUTOSAR- and ISO 26262-compliant development.
Can you execute testing activities faster without the physical hardware? Tula, a Silicon Valley technology company, has seen a 50% reduction in time required to complete validation and verification activities since establishing a virtual validation environment.
With VEOS, Linux-based ECUs can be tested early and efficiently, and synchronized with other simulation components.
The automotive industry is reinventing itself. With autonomous driving, the requirements for software architectures have changed fundamentally.
V-ECUs are not as mysterious as one may think: In the end, it boils down to enriching the code, AUTOSAR or not, with an automatically generated run-time environment and operating system to use it in a software-in-the-loop environment.
Many companies are working on migrating their existing electronic control unit (ECU) software to AUTOSAR. This can often involve reworking much of the structure and rewriting the code in order to make it compliant to the standard.
SystemDesk lays the foundation for successful software-in-the-loop testing. Regardless of whether you are working with Classic AUTOSAR, Adaptive AUTOSAR, or without AUTOSAR (non-AUTOSAR), SystemDesk helps you create your system under test (SUT).
No matter your output data, SystemDesk supports you in creating a virtual ECU (V-ECU). For example, you can import an existing Classic or Adaptive AUTOSAR architecture to use as a basis for configuring your basic software (BSW). In addition, you can use your fully integrated code directly with application software and basic software to create the V-ECU. The generated V-ECU can be simulated using VEOSand forms the basis for your subsequent SILand HIL tests.
Aside from importing an existing architecture, SystemDesk allows you to model your complete AUTOSAR software architecture. An advanced validation function guides you through the individual steps to ensure compliance with the schema. This architecture then forms the basis for implementing the software components and for the basic software configuration.
We would be happy to help you achieve your goals in the SIL world. Our Engineering Services team can help make a start or changeover as easy as possible for you.
