ECU functional testing

  • 12-Aug-2010 08:42 EDT

Vector CANtech’s modular VT System offers a way to implement electronic control unit (ECU) functional testing. Even in the early development stages, ECU system engineers, functional developers, and test engineers can now achieve a high level of test coverage previously attained only in later development phases. VT System also transmits the ECU’s physical input and output values to the test and analysis tool CANoe, providing cost-effective testing right at the bench. When used together with CANoe, VT System provides a flexible test environment that not only executes tests at the network level but also tests ECUs physical inputs and outputs. Testing can be conducted at the developer’s bench simulating the actual conditions of the ECU environment with minimal project-specific engineering effort.
