Collaboration and productivity - Key functions for AUTOSAR tools

ETAS ISOLAR-A’s user-friendly interface: this example shows the mapping of software components to ECUs.

ETAS ISOLAR-A’s editors support standard work processes for generating AUTOSAR systems and application software, as well as the AUTOSAR concepts of “Variant Handling” and “Splitable.”

Automated ISOLAR-A functions support a high number of work processes and help increase productivity and avoid error-prone manual work:

  • Import of legacy formats (e.g. DBC, FIBEX, LDF, ODX), and AUTOSAR files (including System, ECU, and Diagnostic extracts)
  • Support for iterative workflows, e.g. with model-based diff/merge, and rules-based validations
  • Integration of AUTOSAR systems and application software
  • Generation of system, ECU and diagnostics extracts for single and multi-core ECUs
  • Configuration of run-time environments (RTE)


Table-based Composition Editor supports Variation points, Splitable, and Auto Connection.

Developers have access to the AUTOSAR data model of their projects and can modify it using tool APIs through scripts and via command-line. Use case examples: modifications (refactoring), recurring tasks (continuous integration), and customer-specific tasks.

With the product ISOLAR-A ECU EXTRACT, a tool is available that focuses on the generation of ECU extracts via command line.
