Elektrobit (EB) Automotive Provides AUTOSAR Ethernet Solutions for Major OEM

BMW now requires all ECU suppliers to pass a set of Ethernet communication test standards defined in the new Service Pack (SP 2018), which will be valid for all car models starting production in 2018 or later. EB Automotive has developed the Ethernet reference application according to this standard in collaboration with BMW.   The knowledge gained from the BMW Ethernet requirements is now implemented in EB tresos AutoCore. Using EB tresos AutoCore enables ECU suppliers to save time and effort during the project acquisition and pass the functional tests requiring Ethernet for every BMW project.   spacer

Automotive Ethernet Webinar – Tuesday, January 27, 2015

Automobile manufacturers are vying to outdo each other by introducing new functions and systems, from adaptive cruise control and adaptive braking assistants to the electronic horizon and lane departure warning systems. The more systems included in a vehicle network, the more complex the communication between their electronic control units (ECUs) becomes.   Current bus systems for in-vehicle networks have reached their capacity limits and new solutions are needed. Ethernet offers the required high bandwidth for the increasing data transfer within future networks in a car.   Join Elektrobit (EB) Automotive’s Michael Ziehensack for this informative Automotive World webinar. He will address current and future challenges of bringing Ethernet solutions into the next generation of cars.   Register here. spacer

“Bring Your Kids to Work” Day

Bring Kids to Work
On Wednesday, November 19th, Elektrobit (EB) Automotive held it’s second annual "bring your kids to work" day in Erlangen, Germany.   With a regional holiday in Bavaria, most schools were closed. EB selected this day to give employees the opportunity to bring their children starting at age 5 and older to spend the day at EB. The program included a guided tour through the local "Walderlebniszentrum" (forest activity museum), crafting Christmas presents, a soccer/darts table competition and watching animated films. A total of 53 children participated and they all had an exciting and fun-filled day. It was also a very exciting day for the team of EB employees who organized this event. We’re already looking forward to next year!
