Successful ECU Development Projects

ECU Event Logging With Nanosecond Precision


Complete hardware design of a system supporting nanosecond precision sniffing and logging with onboard ECU using CAN-FD, SPI, and Ethernet with a GUI application for configuration, operation, and monitoring of the high-speed log. The system was verified by a full set of unit, component, and integration tests.

Multiple Sub-ECUs For Car Seat Control and Comfort


Developed multiple sub-ECUs for folding seat module, compact valve block, and smart BLDC motor, with software-hardware integration specification. The system was validated by derating analysis, conformance testing, and timing analysis.

Radar Sensor Testing


Created an automated testing environment for our in-house designed radar module. Set up the CI/CD pipeline using Jenkins to test the radar module’s basic functionalities. After each pushed commit, the environment runs a test consisting of the radar (DUT) and a human chest emulator.
