Modular test environment for efficient ECU tests. To test ECUs thoroughly, besides connecting the communication networks to the test system, it is also necessary to connect the I/O interfaces. This task is handled by the Vector VT system. It simplifies the setup of test benches immensely, because it integrates all circuit components needed to connect an I/O channel in one module.

ECU tests may be very complex depending on the work area and the range of functional features. This is even more relevant when testing must cover a network of five to nine ECUs whose functionalities are inseparably intertwined and vary according to the vehicle type, features and special customer wishes. That is why EvoBus has started up a new component test bench based on the VT System from Vector. Its flexible, automated tests enable a high level of test coverage and precise reproducibility of all test cases.

Electric vehicle charging with AC current has been governed by the ISO/IEC 15118 international standard since it was fully adopted in spring 2014. For DC current charging, the industry has agreed on an applicable subset, which is described in DIN SPEC 70121 (Prestandard procedure). This article sheds light on some details of the two standards and points out ways that manufacturers of electric vehicles and charging stations can quickly develop and effectively test products conforming to the new standard.

The development of an ECU always involves numerous tests. Test requirements differ significantly, depending on the stage of development, and within a company they generally fall under the auspices of different departments. If they use different platforms, this leads to high resource requirements in test creation and test management. Much more economical are solutions based on the tool CANoe for simulation and test, which is well-suited for tests on all development levels, due to its high scalability and flexibility.
