System Integration and Analysis in a Virtual Prototype Environment 1999-01-3712
The design and analysis of vehicle wire harnesses presents a daunting challenge to the modern day transportation industry. The continual increase in on-board vehicle electronics, driven by both consumer and legislative demands, is causing an exponential increase in wire harness complexity. To meet these challenges, software tools have been developed to assist harness designer the various tasks from system partitioning to signal integrity analysis. This paper will explore how the SaberHarness™ tool suite can be used as a virtual prototype environment for a complete system design and analysis including wire harness interconnectivity.
