Rapid Prototyping of Production Vehicle Control Systems 2006-01-1657
Developing automotive chassis applications is becoming increasingly complex due to cross-functional system interactions and the inherent safety critical nature of the systems involved. One consequence is the need for a rapid prototyping platform, targeted and tailored to meet the specific needs of the chassis domain.
This paper describes an example of such an architecture for a chassis rapid prototyping system incorporating several Infineon TriCore embedded microcontrollers and Emulation Devices (ED), networked together by the Micro Link Interfaces (MLI). It also discusses how using such a development platform can lead to a significant reduction in the overall development time of a production intent chassis system.
