Elektrobit adds OTA update capabilities to AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform in new EB corbos Starter Kit

January 30, 2023

• Turnkey solution for developing ECUs and distributing updates in software-defined vehicles
• Standardized, safe, and secure way to install, update, and uninstall software on the AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform, providing key capabilities for a carmaker’s Automotive OS
• Works seamlessly out of the box


ERLANGEN, Germany, January 30, 2023 – Elektrobit today announced a new generation of its EB corbos Starter Kit that provides carmakers and Tier 1 suppliers with software for developing electronic control units (ECUs) – based on the Adaptive AUTOSAR standard – plus a component that distributes over-the-air (OTA) software updates. The starter kit (version 2.9 and later) integrates EB corbos – one of the industry’s most established Adaptive AUTOSAR solutions – with EB cadian Sync UCM Master, a specialized OTA update tool.

All car makers are focused on building a common software platform for their vehicles – known as an Automotive OS – for which connectivity is a critical capability. The new EB corbos Starter Kit ensures that software in an Automotive OS can be easily deployed, enhanced, and maintained. With the addition of EB cadian Sync UCM Master (UCM refers to “update and configuration management”), it now provides a standardized, safe, and secure way to install, update, and uninstall software in architectures based on the AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform. EB corbos Starter Kit and EB cadian Sync UCM Master work together seamlessly out of the box without requiring further integration efforts.

“With EB corbos Starter Kit and EB cadian Sync UCM Master, we’re bringing together two key components of an Automotive OS to make it easier for carmakers to develop their software-defined vehicles,” said Michael Robertson, Vice President, Head of Products and Strategy, Elektrobit. “As automotive software experts, we’re committed to partnering with our customers to provide products and services that give them an edge in a very competitive market.”
