Meeting the requirements of ADAS

Powerful Next Generation Electronic Control Unit Interface Technology

ANN ARBOR, Michigan – August 19, 2019 – ETAS, a provider of innovative solutions for the development of automotive embedded systems, will showcase their industry-driving automotive Electronic Control Unit (ECU) interface technology while attending Drive World Conference & Expo, August 27-29, in Santa Clara, CA.

Today’s vehicle ECUs feature numerous sophisticated software functions which are crucial to attain expectations in terms of vehicle performance, safety, responsiveness, drivability, fuel savings and emissions. To develop and calibrate these ECU functions, direct access to the ECU measurement variables and control parameters via the ECU memory is required. ETAS offers powerful, highspeed microcontroller/microprocessor interfaces, called ETKs, which are used between the development ECU and a PC-based development and calibration tool to provide access to the ECU’s memory.

ETAS is the industry leader in real-time, high-speed, on-vehicle ECU interface technology, utilized in the validation and calibration of automotive embedded electronic systems. At Drive, ETAS will introduce the GETK, the next generation ETK ECU Interface technology. GETK can handle vast amounts of data and is powerful enough to meet the requirements of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS): 

  • Connects a microprocessor’s PCIe interface to a real-time, in-vehicle data recording system
  • Features measurement and calibration recording capability of greater than 500 MByte/s
  • Suitable for large amounts of data typically generated by radar, lidar, and other sensors
  • Supports the largest variety of automotive embedded micros in the industry

Demonstrations and expertise at ETAS booth #451
Visitors to Drive World will be able to experience the GETK’s capabilities at the ETAS booth. The demonstration will show the GETK’s data acquisition abilities from the microprocessor and microcontroller in an ADAS ECU via Ethernet to a real-time on-vehicle logging PC.

Adaptive AUTOSAR is a topic often mentioned along with ADAS. ETAS is one of very few companies that has capabilities in AUTOSAR, functional safety, and embedded security and can therefore provide the full solution for safe and secure automotive ECU development. Janak Patel, our AUTOSAR expert, will be available at the booth to present ETAS’ ready-to-go runtime environment, an extension of the Adaptive AUTOSAR platform.
