dSPACE says its new SystemDesk version 4.0 is a convenient tool for completely modeling electronic control unit (ECU) software in compliance with AUTOSAR R4.0.

The AUTOSAR data can be exchanged between OEMs and suppliers, as well as with other tools in the development process.

The company says the dedicated dialogs and graphical representation assist with handling and organisation – so users can keep track of everything. The data is validated while it is being entered, thereby reducing post-design analysis and corrections.

New options for importing and exporting AUTOSAR fi les in SystemDesk 4.0 facilitate data exchange between OEMs and their suppliers, and simplify access to version control systems, says dSpace.
