The future of transportation is electrification. With this shift comes a heavy burden for engineers and software architects to design safe, secure, and hassle-free systems. This webinar will discuss the complexity of electric vehicle (EV) embedded software development for electrical powertrain systems, considerations for success, and investigate solutions to tackle the complex issues faced during development — Register to watch the on-demand webinar now.
An electric vehicle powertrain system comprises six components that must function in perfect harmony for maximum performance: DC-DC converter, inverter, e-motor, charge control, on-board charger, and battery management systems. However, there are several architectural challenges and security and safety considerations. Additionally, charging protocols vary depending on geographical region and constantly evolve, causing many embedded software design challenges for EV powertrains.
As electric vehicles become more complex and the trend toward integration gains momentum, electronic control unit (ECU) developers must grapple with new architectural, security, safety, and charging protocol challenges.
Developers can overcome the challenges of embedded software design for electric vehicles with an integrated E/E systems development approach, made possible by Siemens Capital VSTAR. Capital VSTAR provides a complete solution to the architectural, functional safety, and security challenges of developing a software platform to power high-performing ECUs that drive today's EVs. Its solutions provide software distribution capabilities with a multi-core architecture, secure in-vehicle and V2G communication, fast deployment of functional safety requirements, and rapid adoption of new and evolving charging protocols.
