EB xelor is an all-in-one software platform for creating next-generation automotive electronics architectures based on high-performance computers (HPCs). Combining mass proven EB products, third-party software, and open-source components, EB xelor is a complete foundation that allows you to manage complex projects, enhance software innovation and differentiation, and accelerate your time to market.
Save time and money
EB xelor is a ready-to-use HPC development platform that can host your applications from day one. Combining mass proven automotive software products with thousands of hours of project experience, EB xelor is a pre-integrated system that can reduce your HPC engineering efforts by up to 30%.
A lifetime of value
EB xelor provides automotive-grade security and stability over the long term, combining 30 years of EB’s software development with the latest technologies. EB xelor includes a continuous stream of updates, security maintenance, and new features from EB’s products – allowing you to reuse and scale existing software over the vehicle’s lifetime.
Focus on innovation and differentiation
In the rapid transition to intelligent and connected vehicles, software differentiation is critical to maximizing ROI. EB xelor provides everything you need to develop secure, stable, and upgradable software stacks for next-generation HPCs, allowing you to spend less time on infrastructure – and more time on innovation.
The flexibility you need to create next-gen HPCs
Vehicle architectures are evolving from complex networks of individual electronic control units (ECUs) to a handful of ultra-powerful HPCs. EB xelor enables you to decouple hardware and software, which reduces the complexity of future vehicle designs, simplifies integration efforts, and improves flexibility.
A wealth of knowledge, without additional payroll
EB xelor replaces expensive in-house software development with a scalable platform optimized and pre-configured for all SoC and HPC use cases. EB xelor is an integrated, ready-to-use product that manages all your non-differentiating software requirements – and lets you focus on what makes you successful.

Elektrobit products included in EB xelor
Classic AUTOSAR basic software, operating systems, and a tailor-made tool environment.
A complete software base for safe and secure high-performance controllers, providing a holistic software framework according to the new Adaptive AUTOSAR platform.
A virtualization environment to execute multiple guest operating systems on a single CPU. Virtual machines are spatially and temporally isolated to support security-critical, safety-related, and real-time applications.
A container-based Linux distribution for the automotive industry which solves the challenges of dependency management between diverse applications, offers variability for customer extensions, and enables efficient long-term maintainability.
The new Volkswagen ID.3
The ID.3 is VW’s first all-electric vehicle and features next-generation architectures driven by a small number of powerful HPCs.
VW utilizes several key software packages from EB’s product line, many of which have now been upgraded and combined into EB xelor as a fully integrated product.
EB software has contributed to VW’s development of several ECUs within the ID.3, including the ICAS1 body controller and gateway, ICAS3 infotainment, OCU4 on-board communication unit, and transceiver module.
