Platform API Package 3.1
  • Use of XIL MAPort in VMware to access VEOS simulation platforms and execute multiple simulations and test executions in parallel
  • MAPort-based stimulation and execution of Real-Time Testing scripts on 64-bit virtual processing units (VPUs) in VEOS
Real-Time Testing 4.1
  • Use of Real-Time Testing in VMware to access VEOS simulation platforms
  • Execution of Real-Time Testing scripts on 64-bit VEOS VPUs
RTI CAN Blockset 3.4.8
  • Minor enhancements and bug fixes
RTI CAN MultiMessage Blockset 5.2
  • Support of AUTOSAR 4.4.0
  • Minor enhancements and bug fixes
RTI LIN MultiMessage Blockset 3.2
  • Support of AUTOSAR 4.4.0
  • Minor enhancements and bug fixes
RTI FPGA Programming Blockset 3.7
  • Support of new FPGA boards:
    • DS6601 FPGA Base Board
    • DS6602 FPGA Base Board
  • Remote FPGA build:
    • Use of seperate PCs to execute the FPGA build so that the PC used for modeling is not blocked
    • The build process can be observed with a dedicated tool
Sensor Simulation 1.1
  • Support of fish-eye lenses (>180°) and high-order polynoms
  • Multiple instances on single GPUs for optimizing GPU utilization
  • Optimization of shared memory interface in terms of speed and bandwidth
  • Definition and enhancements to sensor material attributes for about 1,000 objects to address radar and lidar sensor simulation
  • Improved Sensor Simulation demo project to represent more capabilities of sensor simulation
  • Support of radar and lidar simulation modules, V-ESI unit (solutions)
  • Validation:
    • To save HIL time, the test execution can be separated from the postexecution test result evaluation
    • Global execution queues make it possible to distribute test executions from all running projects on all available simulation systems
    • Option to associate execution plans with a test cases query. Therefore, the set of test cases to be executed can be dynamically determined at the actual test execution time
SystemDesk 5.3
  • Import of multicore OS configurations
  • Integration of basic software modules expecting a multicore OS
  • Further supported Microcontroller Abstraction Layer (MCAL) modules for VEOS: Icu, Gpt, Wdg, Adc
