Automotive test system accelerates development time

Car owners want more features and the car makers increase these features to get a competitive edge. Teams of designers, developers, testers and system integrators work to bring these sophisticated systems to market and time is critical. To meet test demands K2L has launched its Automotive Test System (ATS), a singular hardware and software tool that supports all of the major automotive busses for all of the activities related to test and simulation, such as rest bus simulation, device simulation, testing during system development and rapid prototyping.

ATS also covers all of the requirements for conducting analysis and verification. It combines these functions and support for the CAN, LIN, FlexRay and MOST networks into one tool.

ATS enables system integrators and developers to monitor the traffic of a complete, multi-bus network environment, or a single device—whether real or simulated—using a personal computer.

Test engineers can verify system and device reliability by testing features and capabilities throughout the complete design cycle. Verification teams can ensure high-quality devices by using ATS to detect network failures.

“Our ATS integrates the complete feature set to assist developers and testers in setting up and running test scripts and simulations for all of the multi-bus networks in the car,” said Matthias Karcher, K2L’s senior manager. “This will help car makers and their suppliers speed process cycle times and reduce costs.”
