RTA-BSW Starter Kit

The RTA-BSW Starter Kit is a ready-to-use, complete AUTOSAR reference application intended for users who want to have access to and want to experiment with an AUTOSAR application capable of running on a real or virtual target system.

Overview

RTA-BSW workflow

To enable users to generate the reference application, the RTA-BSW Starter Kit provides all of the necessary software tools and evaluation licenses, together with example application software and example configuration. It features a full AUTOSAR stack, including runtime environment (RTE), operating system (OS), COM, MEM and DIAG stacks including a microcontroller abstraction layer (MCAL) for a specific microcontroller/compiler combination.

The RTA-BSW Starter Kit also provides the ability to generate A2L files from the configuration, if the example application is used with an XCP-based calibration tool (such as ETAS INCA).

The RTA-BSW Starter Kit has been designed to run on representative hardware or on a virtual environment (see below for currently supported platforms).

At a Glance

  • Complete, working AUTOSAR reference application
  • Editable Basic Software (BSW) configuration files
  • Full source code for all Application Software (ASW) modules
  • Full source code for all BSW modules (excluding operating system)
  • Enables generation of A2L files to support calibration
  • Included training

Reference Application

The reference application that is generated from the RTA-BSW Starter Kit demonstrates:

  • Tool workflows (including configuration from legacy formats such as DBC)
  • CAN communication (including the UDS diagnostic protocol)
  • Diagnostic event management
  • Non-volatile memory management
  • Mode management
  • Watchdog management
  • E2E (end-to-end communication protocol)
  • Calibration via XCP using a generated A2L file

Included software

The RTA-BSW Starter Kit provides the following software with included licenses:

  • RTA-RTE: RTE generator
  • RTA-OS: real-time operating system including the target-specific part relevant to a specific compiler/microcontroller
  • RTA-BASE: ECU and BSW mode management
  • RTA-DIAG: diagnostic components
  • RTA-SAFE: components for safety management
  • RTA-MEM: non-volatile memory components
  • RTA-COM: network independent communications components
  • RTA-CAN: CAN-specific network components
  • RTA-XCP: supports XCP protocol over CAN
  • RTA-A2L: generator for A2L files
  • MCAL: Microcontroller Abstraction Layer
  • ISOLAR-A: AUTOSAR authoring and basic software configuration tool

Also provided is a reference application, which consists of editable BSW configuration (EcuC value) files, related ASW source code and a pre-generated A2L file.

Included Training

To maximize the use of the RTA-BSW Starter Kit, and to be ready for future steps with AUTOSAR, on-site training is included with the starter kit package.
