PREEvision 9.5 brings high vehicle performance
Modern electric/electronic systems combine the computing power needed for data-rich applications with the flexibility to improve and evolve during life time by updates and upgrades. PREEvision 9.5 helps to develop such future-proof E/E systems based on high-performance computers and the AUTOSAR Adaptive platform.
VN5620 network interface for automotive Ethernet
Vector has presented the VN5620 as a compact interface for analysis, simulation, and testing tasks for automotive Ethernet networks and CAN/CAN FD.
Making automotive Ethernet conformance tests easy with CANoe
Ethernet conformance of automotive ECUs is now easier and more efficient for developers and system integrators. The current Version 12.0 of CANoe, the development and test tool from Vector, now supports conformance tests defined by Technical Committee 8 (TC8) of the OPEN Alliance. The tests are implemented so that their execution is primarily automated; this enables ideal integration into the development process.
Platform meets the demands of current automotive trends
Vector simplifies the introduction of AUTOSAR Adaptive: The model-based E/E development environment PREEvision comprehensively supports users in expanding existing software and hardware architectures with the capabilities of the AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform. AUTOSAR Adaptive expands the AUTOSAR platform to meet the demands of current automotive trends like autonomous driving, electrification and connectivity.
Vector takes over Munich-based TESIS
Specialist for developing and testing software and vehicle electronics, Vector, has completed a full takeover of Munich-based TESIS. TESIS specialises in simulation solutions for virtual road testing, in particular, real time-capable engine and vehicle models. Vector has a ranging product portfolio for conducting tests on the system, function and code levels of distributed embedded systems.
Software tool speeds development of AUTOSAR-4 projects
vVIRTUALtarget is a tool for virtual testing of AUTOSAR ECUs from Vector. It enables faster software development implementations in typical AUTOSAR-4 projects. The virtualised environment makes it possible to test the ECU software throughout the development process. Users benefit from rapid test execution that can be even faster than in real time.
Make the switch to service-oriented E/E architectures
The PREEvision 9.0, the next release of the software tool for developing distributed systems in the automotive industry and related areas, has been introduced by Vector. The model-based development environment is fully equipped for AUTOSAR Adaptive and offers extended SysML and UML functions to model service-oriented architectures.
Reproducible disturbances of CAN (FD) networks
For the precise and reproducible disturbance of CAN (FD) networks, Vector has offered the hardware VH6501. The compact device is additionally a network interface for CANoe. This combination of disturbance functionality and interface enables test setups for conformance testing with very little effort.
Simplifying the measurement of ECUs and ADAS sensors
In the new version of its CANape measurement and calibration tool, Vector integrates many new functions. In this way, calibration engineers can simplify their work and interactions with their ECUs. The storage of configuration files in containers accelerates important project transfer operations. Improvements have also been made in the field of ADAS development, in particular for the visualisation of LIDAR sensor data.
Vector Informatik acquires Timing-Architects
Timing-Architects Embedded Systems GmbH (TA) has been acquired by Vector Informatik. The Stuttgart-based specialist for automotive embedded electronics will now offer its customers an even more comprehensive portfolio in the field of multi-core real time systems.
Guiding the developer step by step through design process
Vector provides developers with comprehensive support for the integration of Ethernet networks in vehicles as well as for the build-up of service-oriented software architectures. No matter if CAN or FlexRay are to be extended, partly replaced or if new use cases are to be developed. With the design tool PREEvision Ethernet networks or clusters can be described comprehensibly, clearly and from scratch.
Infrastructure for ADAS algorithm development expanded
Version 2.5 of vADASdeveloper from Vector provides comprehensive support for developers of multisensor applications for ADAS and automated driving. Through graphical configuration of object information Vector's tool quickly and easily visualises sensor data. Users get new display windows and can integrate reference lidar systems in order to simplify the interpretation of object data and the results of fusion.
Run-time software receives certification for ISO 26262
As of 21st August 2017, the AUTOSAR Run-time Environment (RTE) from Vector fulfills the requirements of ISO 26262 up to ASIL D. exida – an internationally recognised specialist in functional safety. By using the new RTE, ECU developers can avoid much of the effort required to qualify the generated RTE for safety-related applications.
Tool enables flexible data exchange in E/E engineering
Manufacturer of software tools and components for the development of electronic systems, Vector Informatik, has released PREEvision 8.5 which supports additional industry standards for flexible data exchange in E/E engineering. The current release allows for importing and exporting the exchange formats ReqIF and KBL 2.4. Thus, Vector Informatik once again facilitates cooperation between manufacturers and suppliers in the model-based dev...
Vector Informatik acquires Vector Software
Vector Informatik GmbH has acquired 100% of the US company Vector Software. Vector Software specialises in automated embedded software testing in multiple industries. Vector Informatik has a long experience in providing system and functional testing solutions for automotive ECUs and distributed embedded systems. This acquisition extends that testing portfolio by adding the embedded software testing platform “VectorCAST”, a soluti...
Diagnostic configuration at the press of a button
With version 8.5 SP2 of CANdelaStudio, Vector presents a solution for the creation of AUTOSAR-compliant configurations of the diagnostic basic software for vehicle ECUs. It enables development teams at vehicle and ECU manufacturers to generate AUTOSAR Diagnostic Extract (DEXT) files at the press of a button. AUTOSAR DEXT is a new extension of the AUTOSAR system description.
Linux-based ECUs are compliant to OEM requirements
Vector is supplementing its portfolio of basic software products by adding a flash bootloader for Linux-based ECUs. Developers will now benefit from a quick and easy solution for reprogramming these ECUs according to OEM-specific requirements. It enables reliable updating of shell scripts and graphic data as well as configuration and operating system files. Infotainment and telematic controllers feature high-resolution graphics and comp...
Experts look at the future of automotive electronics
Rapidly evolving technology in the automotive market - from autonomous cars and advanced ADAS systems, to truck platooning and vehicle networking - means that many consumers are unsure about what the future holds for the modern day motorists.
