Chip Simulation of Automotive ECUs on PC
Modern ECUs contain tens of thousands of engine parameters that need to be tuned. Calibration of these parameters is time consuming and complex. Simulation and optimization on a PC could help to automate and speed up the calibration process, in particular if simulation runs much faster (e.g. 20 times) than real-time. QTronic and Daimler describe how the ECU Simulation is integrated in an engine development process by the OEM.
