ETAS and PLC2 Design enter into partnership
Holistic solutions for data measurement, processing, and analysis for the software-defined vehicle from a single source
ETAS and PLC2 Design are entering into a close partnership. Both parties signed a corresponding agreement on March 31, 2022, subject to approval by the antitrust authorities.
Data acquisition and processing is essential for the realization of software-defined vehicles. The new holistic solution from ETAS and PLC2 Design allows sophisticated customer software to be validated realistically in the AD/DA environment. In future, this will provide a faster, more reliable, and more efficient way of providing solutions for software-defined vehicles to manufacturers and other suppliers.
The company PLC2 Design, headquartered in Freiburg, Germany, offers design services and develops products in the areas of FPGA (field-programmable gate arrays) and embedded systems. It also provides professional seminars and training courses for the embedded market, with a specific focus on AMD/Xilinx technologies.
By partnering with PLC2 Design, ETAS has rounded off its metrology portfolio in the areas of in-vehicle data pre-processing and edge computing / high-performance data logging. Access to the ETAS sales and distribution network will enable PLC2 Design to market its products globally in the automotive market.
The products that will be incorporated in the ETAS portfolio include the ADL-1000, a data logging system, and the PGC-1000 Frame Grabber Card, a high-performance PCIe card. Furthermore, a FPGA-based IP core (PLC2 L5) for lossless video compression and decompression.
