Discover SOA trends and how to integrate hybrid networks

Find optimal values for new vehicle ECU parameters

Estimated Watching Time: 39 minutes

Vehicle designers see service-oriented architecture (SOA) as a critical cornerstone of the modern vehicle's electrical and electronic (E/E) architecture.

In this webinar, we will investigate the benefits of SOA but also discuss the integration challenges of SOA in combination with new and existing communication and software design patterns for a cost and time-efficient solution that satisfies system requirements. We will also touch on the importance of communication network design and embedded software implementation to achieve a consistent and efficient vehicle system and how Siemens proposes solving the SOA integration of hybrid networks.

Integrate established, domain-centric legacy networks with SOA

Today's automotive OEMs are challenged to integrate service-oriented communication with established legacy networks. This requires integration with the established domain-centric legacy networks that use signal-based communication. Because of this, Capital VSTAR uses zone and domain controllers to bridge the service orientation and the legacy networks.

Establish consistent network design over the entire vehicle

Vehicle electrification and electronic complexity are challenging automotive network design and software development, creating the need for an advanced network design tool. To implement these different types of ECUs, Capital VSTAR enables consistent full system design that meets all requirements, such as bus load and end-to-end timing to feed the downstream ECU integration digitally.

Combine agile hybrid traditional and service-oriented communication design

There is a future with software-defined vehicles, which requires SOA. Today, SOA is typically introduced progressively, resulting in a mix of traditional signal-based communication and the new trend of service-oriented communication. This is a problem for network designers today because hybrid networks increase complexity more than ever.
