Simulate V-ECUs

The Advantages

  • VEOS allows you to run deterministic simulations of V-ECUs faster than real time
  • Connect V-ECUs on bus level, e.g., for ECUs including a COM stack, or on signal level, e.g., for application level V-ECUs or for stimulation in open-loop testing
  • Break points can be set to pause the simulation for debugging purposes exactly as required
  • Simulate the bus behavior for CAN, CAN FD and LIN, and use an idealized bus for FlexRay

Tests During Development

Function developers can run V-ECU simulations directly on their development PCs without the need of additional hardware. Thus, they can pause the simulation and debug the code of the V-ECU within the simulation step-by-step.

Real-Time Independent Simulation

Simulating V-ECUs does not depend on real-time execution. Scaling up the simulation to more powerful CPUs lets you run more tests in the same amount of time.

Virtual Bus Simulation

You can simulate V-ECUs including a complete COM Stack. The V-ECUs can then be connected to a virtual bus for simulating distributed functions and ECU networks without real hardware. The COM stack can either be generated automatically for CAN and LIN networks or you can include a third-party CAN or CAN FD COM stack. If the V-ECU contains diagnostic basic software, you can access the virtual bus by using ControlDesk and run virtual diagnostic tests, for example.
