Reduce inefficiencies in HIL testing for traction inverter ECUs

Validating automotive traction inverter can become inefficient because of the disparate toolchains that connect design and validation. While the design team speaks in models, usually from MathWorks Simulink® or Simscape™ software, the validation team works in HIL test systems and attempts to run those models in real-time software. The hand-off rarely performs at its best… Read more »
