Automotive Test System’s Multi-Bus Support Includes CAN, LIN, FlexRay® and MOST® Network Development With One Combined Hardware and Software Tool
Karlsruhe, Germany, Aug. 19, 2014 — K2L GmbH & Co. KG, today announced its Automotive Test System (ATS), which is a singular hardware and software tool that supports all of the major automotive busses for all of the activities related to test and simulation, such as rest bus simulation, device simulation, testing during system development and rapid prototyping. ATS also covers all of the requirements for conducting analysis and verification. By combining all of these functions and support for the CAN, LIN, FlexRay® and MOST® networks into one tool, ATS provides the most cost-effective and flexible option to the automotive industry. It also enables automated testing and any kind of simulation, helping to ensure quality from the earliest design stages.
Automakers are constantly increasing their available features in order to compete, which means a growing number of interconnected electronics in each vehicle. To bring those sophisticated automotive systems to market in a timely manner requires a complete team of designers, developers, testers and system integrators, and ATS serves all of their needs with a single tool that supports all of the automotive busses. This integration reduces complexity and cost while speeding time to market.
ATS enables system integrators and developers to monitor the traffic of a complete, multi-bus network environment, or a single device—whether real or simulated—using a personal computer. Test engineers can verify system and device reliability by testing features and capabilities throughout the complete design cycle. Verification teams can ensure high-quality devices by using ATS to detect network failures.
“Our ATS integrates the complete feature set to assist developers and testers in setting up and running test scripts and simulations for all of the multi-bus networks in the car,” said Matthias Karcher, K2L’s senior manager. “This will help car makers and their suppliers speed process cycle times and reduce costs.”
The Automotive Test System is available today from K2L, including the test hardware and PC software. This system is based on K2L’s OptoLyzer® MOCCA compact, which acts as the hardware interface for all of the major automotive busses.
