White Paper: Simulation of Electrical Faults in the Lab and in the Vehicle
This white paper describes the requirements on a test system which simulates electrical faults of various types.

Automotive embedded control systems in automobiles are exposed to a wide range of environmental conditions including vibration, shock, electromagnetic radiation, temperature, and humidity variations.

While modern electronic control units (ECUs) are extremely robust and provide a high level of safety against any of these external threats, connectors, cable harnesses, and sensors and actuators have become the most vulnerable components in relation to external disturbances. These vulnerabilities triggered the development of embedded diagnostics that monitor and detect electrical faults in a system and activate mitigation procedures when needed.

This white paper describes the requirements on a test system which simulates electrical faults of various types. In addition to theoretical examples it provides use cases of the ETAS fault insertion tools ES4440 and ES4441.
