Functional testing of an ECU must be performed in an environment that the ECU sees as identical to a real vehicle. Besides connecting the communication network lines, it is also necessary to connect the I/O interfaces. VT System modules are capable of simulating sensor and actuator signals and enable connecting real sensor and actuator hardware to the ECU. Our current setup consists of 10 modules inside a 19-inch desktop case.

Installed modules:

  • Real-time module VT6060 drives the VT System hardware and handles the execution of the real-time test, so the user’s PC doesn’t influence the behavior of the test system.
  • Measurement and simulation modules:
    • VT1004A – Provides outputs for the ECU, which are connected to actuators such as servo motors or lamps.
    • VT2004A – Provides inputs for the ECU which are connected to vehicle sensors such as temperature probes or switches.
    • VT2848A – Provides up to 48 general-purpose digital I/O signals connected directly to the ECU or to other parts of a testbench.
  • Network interface modules
    • VT2710 – Serial Interface Module with support for automotive (PSI5, SENT) and universal (SPI, I2C, UART, etc.) serial communication.
    • VT6204 – CAN/LIN/FlexRay Network Module.
    • VT6306 – Ethernet Network Module with support for Automotive Ethernet.
  • Other modules:
    • VT2832 – Switch Matrix Module
    • VT7900A – Extension Module
    • VTC8920B – Power Supply Module
