ECU-TEST Release 2022.4
Top features at a glance
Referencing artifacts managed in TEST-GUIDE
The current release contains additional enhancements to further centralize the deployment of artifacts and reduce the size of workspaces.
From now, on A2L and HEX files can be referenced by an ID in a TEST-GUIDE depository instead of by a (local) file path. For this purpose, we have expanded the ECU-TEST settings to include the option TEST-GUIDE artifacts. This also allows the configuration of multiple depositories.
ARXML: Split file support for AUTOSAR Classic
It is important that the bus description files are complete overall, even if they are split between different files.
At the start of configuration, the bus description files of the directory are parsed and are available afterwards.
Note: Both unzipped and zipped archives can be read in.
Protocol tests for Ethernet-based protocols
Calling service methods without waiting for response
In order to use the function, the 'Ignore response' option must be activated in the appropriate test step.
Initial connection to RTMaps
The newly created connection to ECU-TEST allows replays of traces to be automatically executed on PC-based simulation or on real-time platforms with new ECU functionalities.
ECU-TEST drive and the 'Message dialog' test step
In ECU-TEST drive, the title, the message type, the corresponding description and the defined buttons are displayed.
Depending on the selection and the configuration of the buttons, the test result is displayed.
More flexible speech output
To do this, activate the checkbox 'Continue execution during speech output.' within the ECU-TEST settings under 'Interactive test execution' option.
Alternatively, you can stop the speaker prematurely by pressing a button during synchronous readout.
Creating variables from returns of sub-packages
Thus, the actual test case package is composed of many individual packages, or sub-packages.
In the current version, the creation of such nested test case packages is even easier, because the already defined variables of a sub-package are transferred directly into the new test case package with variable type, initial value, and description.
FEP3 trace analysis
With the new ASAM: XIL based connection to Synopsys: Silver, we optimized the previous connection in the following points.
The connection works independently of the GUI. In Silver, any multiplier can be used for the display without influencing the automation.
Execution with SilverSim:
Instead of the GUI application, the headless simulator can alternatively be addressed directly.
Execution under Linux:
The interface is ready for future Silver versions with XIL support. This means no changes to the test case implementations are required.
Note: Silver XIL supports Silver from version U-2022.12.
