In embedded software development, virtualization comprises the early execution of testing, validation, and calibration by simulating the object under test and / or its environment without necessarily having the complete target hardware available. By deploying virtualization technology, the design and behavior of new systems can be analyzed in detail on the PC, using lab test benches and with HiL systems.
ETAS offers comprehensive virtualization solutions that enable customers to perform development tasks in virtual environments. In order to fully take advantage of virtualization’s potential, ETAS consultants begin with in-depth process analysis. By applying ETAS Solutions, customers are able to significantly increase the quality and efficiency of the development process and the actual software product.
Benefits of ETAS virtualization solutions
- Comprehensive offer comprising open tools, models, engineering services, and consulting
- Support of the complete development cycle
- Based on many years of ETAS experience in model-based software development, software testing, validation, and calibration
ETAS virtualization solutions use advanced technologies for simulating and prototyping embedded controls and controlled systems. They allow for integration of physical components into the virtual environment and are deployed from the PC in the office, using test benches, with Hardware-in-the-Loop (HiL) test systems, or in test vehicles.
The “ETAS Solutions for Virtual Validation” video gives an overview on how ETAS tools are applied for testing and validating software via Model-in-the-Loop (MiL), Software-in-the-Loop (SiL), and Hardware-in-the-Loop (HiL) setups throughout all development phases.
