EHOOKS (Easy Hooks) software from ETAS allows control engineers to add hooks to base ECU software without having to modify the source code. Benefits include rapid software prototyping and testing. EHOOKS also allows the conversion of all RAM variables into calibrations that can be adjusted during run time using various calibration software. User code is integrated from new functions into the ECU software for evaluation in real time. EHOOKS also can increase virtual software testing using in-the-loop technology, where functions on an ECU can be connected directly to the inputs and outputs of a vehicle model simulated on the PC without the need for signal conditioning hardware. Users are able to reduce prototyping activities, including a decreased number of ECU software releases required before start of production and the creation of software versions in less time.
