Keywords:software module? electronic control unit? ECU?

Vector and TTTech Automotive have forged a partnership for the development and sales of standard software modules for car electronic control units (ECUs). Vector will set its focus on Autosar basic software modules, while TTTech will put emphasis on safety-relevant software modules according to ISO 26262, and provide further expertise in the area of FlexRay.

The purpose of this cooperation is to allow the participating partners to align their software development and to jointly work on support and delivery. A further result of this partnership will be providing a consistent tool chain for configuring the software. Both companies will offer the resulting solutions in terms of a general contractor. By combining the core competencies of the partners, customers benefit from an integrated, cost-effective product. The solution can be used for non-safety-critical Autosar applications as well as for safety-relevant systems compliant with ASIL-D according to ISO-DIS 26262.

The focus of the first project will be to complement the Vector Autosar basic software (Microsar) with a module from TTTech Automotive to ensure communication integrity. Development has already been started, and details of the solutions are currently being developed jointly with customers and both partners.

Current customer solutions are not affected by this cooperation and will continue to be maintained by the respective partner. It will be evaluated together with the customer whether switching to the new collaborative solution will result in significant benefits.
