ECU Interface Manager

dSPACE introduces its ECU Interface Manager which enables control engineers to accelerate ECU function development projects.

Dspace Pressrelease Ecuinterfa 10630493
Dspace 10055308

The ECU Interface Manager from dSPACE helps simplify the workflow and accelerate ECU function development projects.

  • Enables control engineers to insert bypass hooks intuitively and quickly, directly into the compiled ECU hex code, for incremental ECU function development
  • Features easier, faster hex-code-based bypass service integration for on-target prototyping and external bypassing
  • No access to either source code or build environment of ECU software is required
  • Integrates bypass services and service calls, also known as bypass hooks
  • Supports internal bypassing (on-target prototyping), in which free RAM and flash memory areas in ECU are used to implement controller algorithms
  • Allows external bypassing as well as external bypassing for algorithms developed on external rapid prototyping system
  • Users can switch back and forth between these internal and external without having to modify controller model
  • Analyzes ECU hex code and associated ECU description file (A2L file)
  • Finds function calls, read/write accesses to ECU variables and conditional branches in ECU software
  • Using a configuration file, ECU supplier can specify which information will actually be displayed in
  • Detailed knowledge of ECU software not necessary
  • Generates new HEX file and new A2L file containing  bypass hooks at the push of a button
  • Currently available for ECUs with Infineon TriCore microcontrollers
  • Additional microcontroller families are planned to be supported in near future
  • All functions available for bypassing at a glance
  • Existing bypass services can be reused
  • Supports more processor families: Freescale MPC55xx and MPC56xx, ST Microelectronics SPC56 and Infineon AURIX
