VT System Configuration Services for HIL Testing of Automotive Control Units (ECU)
VT Systems is industry wide recognized tool that powers the automation of Hardware-in-Loop (HIL) Testing of automotive control units.Our Functional Testing team has extensive expertise in performing HIL Testing using VT System along with Vtest Studio and Vector CANoe.
Some of the cutting-edge automotive solutions that we have worked on, include HVAC systems, Seat and Mirror Control ECUs, Automotive Lighting ECUs’, and more.
HIL Testing Services delivered using VT Systems
Test-Case Development from SRS (Software Requirement Specifications)
Our Subject Matter Experts develop in-depth understanding of the system I/O & use-case
Design and development of Test-Cases as per the SRS document
Efficient Management of SRS & Test-Case documents using tools like IBM DOOR
Support for other Requirement Management tools specified by the customer
Test Case Execution and Report Generation
Support for Test Case design in IBM Quality Manager or preferred Test Case template
Creating CAPL test scripts using the test case design
Writing test case scripts directly from requirements using VTest Studio/CAPL (In case, customer doesn’t need the test case design document)
Test cases are created as Suites based on features like Diagnostics, Motor control etc.
Detailed Summary of Test Results in the Test Report Test Fail/Pass report generation
Test Report includes clear steps for reproducing the bug
Development of ECU-VT system Interface
Hardware Support for development of interface between the Device Under Test (DUT) and VT System
Support for adapting to a VT system for the project (In case, already has a VT system)
This hardware interface is designed as per the Inputs/Outputs of the automotive control unit

Customer Success Stories: Hardware-in-Loop Testing (HIL Testing)
- HIL Testing of Engine Control Unit
Customer FAQs for Vector VT System Powered HIL Testing of Automotive ECU Software
Ans. Our HIL Testing team has provided consulting and support for the following modules of the Vector VT System:
- VT7001A- Power Module
- VT1004A- Load and Measurement Module
- VT2004A- Stimulation Module
- VT2820- General Purpose Relay Module
- VT2516A- Digital Module
- VT6104- Network Module
These modules are setup in a 12 racks panel. Depending on the project’s requirements, we can also provide support for other modules.
Ans. The HIL Testing services are provided on (T&M) business model. The billing is done on actual man hours of the project, along with the license cost of the HIL Testing tools.
In a scenario where regressive testing is required (after addition of new feature), we follow same pricing model.
Ans. We are fully equipped to deliver projects that aim to achieve the desired ASIL grade (ASIL A/ ASIL B/ ASIL C/ ASIL D).
Our HIL Testing team ensures the compliance by designing the test cases according to the tables mentioned in the ISO 26262 standard.
In the subsequent phases also, we follow ISO 26262 guidelines for Hardware in Loop (HIL) Testing.
Ans. Our automotive testing team has successfully delivered HIL Testing projects for automotive ECUs such as Lighting ECU, Mirror and Seat Control ECU, HVAC and other ongoing engagements.
More details about customer projects can be shared once we sign the Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) with your team.
Ans. Its great that you have a Vector VT System in place. We can provide all the support for designing the test cases and writing them using the CAPL script on V Test Studio.
If you require any further support such as regression testing or ECU-VT system interface development, we will be more than happy to help.
Ans. we understand that due to certain circumstances, you may not be able to ship your entire system to our location, for HIL Testing. Don’t worry we have got you covered.
We have a business model in place where our VT System test engineers visit your location and provide necessary support for executed of HIL Testing.
Ans. Being a CMMI Level-3 organization, we take data safety and integrity very seriously. We strictly adhere to the guidelines prescribed in the standards such as GDPR and ISO 27001.
At Embitel Technologies, it is mandatory for for all the members of the HIL Testing Team, to clear the necessary online tests of the above mentioned data security standards.
Furthermore, the code transfer is done over secure FTP servers leaving no room for data breach
Ans. We can support in HIL Testing projects using other test systems such as ETAS and LabView. However, we expect our customers to provide these test setups as we do not have them in our Testing Labs, as of now.
If the customer is able to provide access to these systems, our testing team can provide other support such as Test Case design and execution.
Ans. We will share the HIL Testing reports with details of successful and failed test cases. These reports will be available in PDF and HTML format.
