MICROSAR vVIRTUALtarget basic
The process for developing an ECU typically begins with creating the individual software modules (SWC). However, because of the continued trend towards shorter project time, there is generally insufficient time to sequentially create all the necessary SWCs first, then test their interaction with one another and finally test their interplay with the basic software on the target hardware. An integrated test of the SWC together with basic software is essential for early assessment and fast iteration.
Numerous projects today are characterized by the need to start test runs in a very early project phase - sometimes in a phase in which the target hardware has not yet been fully defined. vVIRTUALtarget offers the optimal solution for this situation. It is an emulated runtime environment in which ECU software can be executed without requiring access to real hardware, which decouples test execution from hardware platform. This, in turn, leads to substantial time advantages. Furthermore, the same basic software configuration can be used for both the target hardware and the environment of vVIRTUALtarget.
A CANoe license is required to simulate and measure communication and I/O interfaces.
