ETAS has developed the ISOLAR-EVE (ETAS Virtual ECU) tool environment: a platform for efficient PC-based development, validation, and verification of embedded software that leverages the AUTOSAR standard.

ISOLAR-EVE – Virtual ECU for Software Development

Implementing ISOLAR-EVE’s open interfaces and flexibility can deliver a significant increase in productivity in many key development steps:

  • Early validation of the application software at the AUTOSAR Virtual Function Bus level
  • Simple and fast testing of AUTOSAR software components and software component interoperability including Basis Software stack
  • ECU network integration testing with any combination of real and virtual ECUs, even with continuous integration throughout the entire development process

ISOLAR-EVE is a powerful virtual ECU environment that accelerates the integration and testing of ECU software. Errors can be found sooner to save time and costs, and this contributes to a high software quality at an earlier point in the development process.


  • Connect the virtual ECU to tools for CAN bus simulation, such as CANoe or BUSMASTER
  • Automate testing, e.g. with PikeTec TPT
  • Includes MCAL (Microcontroller Abstraction Layer), OS (AUTOSAR operating system), and RTE (AUTOSAR Runtime-Environment) for the PC, based on production-proven embedded implementations of these components
  • Supports RTE (AUTOSAR Runtime Environment) and AUTOSAR-BSW (Basic software) implementations of various suppliers
  • Simulation of closed control loops, e.g. with Simulink® or FMI compliant tools
  • Openness and flexibility by using standards, such as AUTOSAR, Artop, Eclipse, XCP, and A2L
