The industry’s most comprehensive integrated AUTOSAR design environment, the VSx vehicle systems design toolset is an integrated suite of tools that enable AUTOSAR-based vehicle system and embedded software design, including E/E architectural design, application software development, virtual validation, and software test. These tools improve time-to-market and deliver cost advantages by enabling the use of standard interfaces and components based on the AUTOSAR specifications.
VSA enables the design of the SW and HW architecture of an AUTOSAR system, the mapping of SW components (SWCs) to electronic control units (ECUs) and the system signals exchanged between them. VSA supports the full AUTOSAR data model and enables industrial-scale development projects with multiple users and iterative development through the use of integrated configuration management and merge technologies.
VSA COM Designer supports network design of AUTOSAR-based ECUs; it also supports standard CAN/ LIN implementations, such as those using Volcano VTP. Additionally, systems containing both AUTOSAR BSW and other implementations can be designed in VSA COM Designer.
VSI is a software validation environment that behaves like an integrated system made up of hardware elements such as ECUs, buses, sensors, actuators, etc. It enables early validation of software functionality before actual hardware is available.
Volcano VSTAR AUTOSAR Basic Software (BSW) stack provides a fully AUTOSAR 4.0 compliant and scalable middleware for ECU design which abstracts the application from the HW-dependent layer. It is supported by a complete top-down development tool suite.
Volcano AUTOSAR Features
Model Driven Design
VSx products are focused on the model-driven design process, an approach that enables customers to reduce their reliance on downstream validation and physical prototyping. This provides companies significant cost savings in the development process as significant decisions and verification tasks are moved to the front end of the design process.
Built Upon Eclipse
The VSx tool chain covers automotive SW and electronic systems design, virtual verification, testing, and configuration. All VSx tools are built upon the Eclipse framework, and thus, are part of a modular and open framework for development tools.
