ECUs for Data Communication

Vector Controllers

Vector Controllers are ECUs for specific use cases with the focus on data communication.

The Vector Controllers are ECUs for specific use cases with the focus on data communication. They are perfect for the rapid development of functional samples and for use in series production. Whether charging control unit for commercial vehicles or gateway: The development costs are shared across many users. That keeps the price reasonable.


  • Standard technologies scaled down to small series productions and development samples
  • Already qualified hardware for use in vehicles
  • Shorter development cycles
  • High flexibility and cost optimization for serial production
  • Single source supplier for ECU hardware, project and embedded software as well as development tools

Application Areas

The Vector Controllers are perfect for your prototyping and development projects. They are also available in high quantities for test fleets and small series productions. Together with the MICROSAR basic software it forms a complete package with full functionality. The open ECU is also capable to host your individual software.
