System Level Architecture Design Tools and Methods (part 1 of 2)
(Session Code: AE318)

Room D0-07A  10:00 a.m.

This session focuses on methods and design tools for the exploration, analysis, synthesis, and optimization of E/E automotive architectures. These methods and tools are usually model-based as they are applied in the early phases (left-hand side of the V-Cycle) of the development process. These methods and tools assist designers in deciding and configuring the communication network topology, the allocation of functions to ECU's, and the IO allocation strategies.
