How to Determine Which OpenECU is Suitable for My System

Written by Gordan Jurasek, Director of Hardware Advanced Solutions, Pi Innovo Evaluating the suitability of an OpenECU Electronic Control Unit (ECU) for use in your system as an embedded controller is best done in layers with the obvious and superficial screens done first to narrow the candidate pool to a limited quantity followed by the fine detailed requirements test on the narrower candidate pool.  Many times, an off-the-shelf module will meet the requirements but for cases where customization is needed, OpenECU...

How to Determine Which OpenECU is Suitable for My System: Mechanical Interfaces and Usage Profile

Written by Gordan Jurasek, Director of Hardware Advanced Solutions, Pi Innovo As much as I would like (as an electrical engineer) to assume away any constraints presented by the physical world, there is no avoiding reality. Complicating matters is that some of the environmental conditions vary substantially with the operating modes. The operating modes, usage profile and conditions during each operating mode of the mounting location for the ECU must be collected. These consist of:
  • Physical Interfaces:
