and data management to each unique application. It
is a comprehensive solution that includes real-time
and post-data analysis.

Essential elements of any data analysis tool include


the ability to manipulate and view data in a way
that highlights results, differences, or specific
events. VISION enables comparisons, highlighting
or auto detecting of data or events, overlaying, and
even partial exporting to save time and minimize
throughput. VISION offers still another level of
convenience by allowing analysis and changes to
analysis while still on-line. There is no need to start
or stop the application to make changes.

Analysis is strongly tied to the acquisition process


and can be an essential part of calibration.

Data Acquisition

Hardware Solutions

ATI offers competitive, rugged data acquisition solutions for a wide range of applications that provide flawless, reliable
performance under all conditions and environments, from the lab bench to the most challenging vehicle conditions.
This may include signal input devices for analog or thermocouple, power management, communication management,
data display, or signal output. In designing a system, performance and cost are core decision factors, but other special
features may also be needed, such as more channels, higher bandwidths, or faster data rates. Signal filtering for noise
isolation or ruggedization of hardware for use in the harshest environments is also important.

And while all these elements are listed in the specification on a data sheet, ATI hardware provides one other key
feature - time synchronization. This means that the hardware helps manage time alignment within the software from
a variety of sources.

Depending on the availability of space, the number of channels needed, sensor locations, and other requirements,
ATI’s data acquisition hardware configurations can be configured for either centralized or distributed layouts.

Centralized
• Installed in one location
• Enables the use of lower cost, high channel-
count modules
• Simplifies servicing the equipment in the field
• Can be placed in a well-protected area; reduces
the need for ruggedness
• Longer wire lengths must be laid throughout;
increasing weight, higher labor and material
costs

Distributed
• Installed throughout the vehicle
• Typically smaller data collection modules
• Placed closer to the actual signal source
improving signal integrity and reducing noise
affects
• Smaller bundles of wire; less weight, lower cost
of installation and material

Data Acquisition

Data Acquisition Options

ATI data acquisition modules are environmentally sealed, robust-


packaged devices with high-end performance that can be mounted
virtually anywhere. The EMX Data Acquisition Series features
include extended filtering and accurate data at fast rates. They are
configured with a series of functional modules: High Speed Analog
Input, Thermocouple, and Sensor Power Supply. The EDAQ16P
Data Acquisition Module has provided steady results for many
years supporting pulse inputs each with 16 input channels.

The DLX Datalogger offers not only data acquisition capabilities,


but also the features of a CAN interface and datalogger all in one
compact package.

Additional Devices

To design a complete solution with the DAQ modules,


there are a series of devices that include communication
management, analog and digital output, power boosting, and
display. The CANary Interface Module and the VISION
Network Hub provide essential time alignment of the ATI
hardware data. Both devices can also interface to CCP, XCP, or
other CAN devices.

For output, the Voltage Output Module (VOM) provides


analog and digital output data to any external control
system or device in the format needed. While the Vehicle
Information Display (VID) is an easily configured heads-up
display.

ECU Calibration

Designing an Electronic Control Unit (ECU) is only the beginning. The features in ECUs, such as Powertrain Control
Units, are quickly becoming more complex and offering more features. Thousands of variables are now provided for
the engineer to modify during the in-vehicle calibration phase, and fine tuning them is as complicated as it is critical.

Calibration tools significantly impact the efficiency and effectiveness of the ECU development process. These tools are
typically comprised of PC-based software to perform the adjustment of the variables and an ECU hardware interface
to provide the interface to the controller. Teams must be able to measure and time-align relationships of inputs and
outputs and make real-time modifications.

ECU Interfaces

ECU Interfaces are devices that connect to an ECU microcontroller directly - as a memory emulator or through the
debug port interface - while ECU Protocol Interfaces communicate using Association for Standardisation of Automation
and Measuring Systems (ASAM) standards, such as CCP or XCP. The method can be driven by what is supported on
the microcontroller, by the ECU manufacturer, or the end user. ATI offerings support all approaches.

Serial Interface Modules

Serial Interfaces are built for the most demanding environments,


including usage within the ECU underhood. There is a family
of USB and Ethernet devices that enables data acquisition,
calibration, and flashing functionality to ECUs with supported
microprocessors via a connection through the microprocessors
debugger interface. A8 Serial Interface Modules support the
latest microprocessors through current debug interfaces, such
as OCDS, Nexus, and DAP2. A7 Serial Interface Modules
currently support JTAG, AUD, and RTD interfaces that provide
real-time access to memory mapped resources.

Memory Emulator Modules

Memory Emulator Modules are designed to directly replace the


microcontroller on the ECU to provide direct access to calibration
parameters. The M6 Memory Emulator family is a tailored
solution for the calibration of ECUs based on the Freescale™
PowerPC MPC5xx and TriCore TC179x family of microcontrollers.
The M5 Memory Emulator Modules connection to the
target ECU is via a low-cost Tool Adapter Board (TAB) that is
customized to mate the M5 with the specific ECU under test.
This makes the M5 a reusable universal module that can be used
with a range of microprocessors and applications.

CAN Network
Calibration over an existing CAN bus or other networks
has existed for over a decade. Traditionally the ECU
already has an existing communication network making
this interface the lowest cost approach. Typical data
rates are about 40 to 60 data items every 10 msec and
bandwidth may be limiting for calibration. The CANary
Interface Module, the VISION Network Hub and other
third party CAN interfaces, such as Kvaser CAN hardware,
will work for this application.

14
ECU Rapid Prototyping

Rapid Prototyping is commonly used throughout the development of any product, and ECU development is no
different. Vehicle ECUs, especially, are becoming exponentially more complex while their development cycles are
shrinking. Therefore, rapid prototyping is even more important because it allows test and integration to progress
regardless of hardware and software availability.

Any hardware or software component can be prototyped at any point in the development process. ATI’s patented rapid
prototyping solution focuses on the ECU specifically. ATI No-Hooks software-centric rapid prototyping is uniquely
coupled with the ECU, providing unprecedented flexibility and enabling an interactive process for bypassing variables
to experiment with new features or test new ideas. All bypasses are accomplished without the need of external
hardware or software hooks. Most importantly, these ideas can be exercised on existing hardware, vastly reducing the
validation process. When the idea is proven on the existing hardware, it can be implemented with confidence that will
translate to saved time and money.

ATI provides two levels of rapid prototyping:

• Base No-Hooks that allows the bypass of an existing variable with a manually controlled alternative variable
defined by the user.
• OnTarget that allows the bypass of an existing variable with an alternative variable that is the output from an
alternative control algorithm model.

including Electronic Throttle and X-by-Wire features,
require redundancy checks, including verification
that the memory of the microcontroller is functioning
correctly. No-Hooks enables the simulation of a
RAM corruption condition by bypassing a given RAM
address and inserting a user-defined No-Hooks value
into the RAM location.

In Simulation
ATI’s OnTarget can replace or add further flexibility
to HIL systems by providing the simulated data from
a model running in the system rather than from
external hardware running a model. OnTarget can
adjust non-calibratable variables through simulation
software rather than requiring expensive changes to
HIL system hardware and simulation software.

rapid prototyping tools the ability to alter the inputs
to functions and features inside the ECU. It can feed

Test Cell Measurement

Accurate Technologies’ long history in powertrain development provided insight into the day-to-day issues that were
occurring during engine testing at a time when electronic devices were being introduced to monitor performance
instead of traditional mechanical means. Outside of the harsh physical environments, devices used in these
applications need to perform difficult high-voltage signal conditioning and high-speed synchronous pulse processing.

ATI developed unique products that satisfy specific test cell or dynamometer challenges. These highly accurate
products measure engine timing (IGTM) or speed (SmartTach) in convenient ways to provide information that
otherwise may not be available.

Network Analysis

Network development solutions come in different formats to support a variety of applications, such as network
analysis or node emulation. Network analysis is crucial throughout the development of any networked system or
module. The ability to capture, view, and record messages allows monitoring of bus integrity or troubleshooting
functionality of the modules on the network. Whether developing a concept or preparing for production, access to the
network is essential. Node simulation can be done with hardware or software components depending on whether the
environment is on the bench or in the vehicle.

Software Solution Features

Node Emulation
During network development, in many instances there
is a point where the ‘real’ hardware is not available
for testing. Node emulation, done by hardware or
in software, is used in its place. CANLab Network
Analysis Software provides all the features needed
to send and receive messages just as an ECU would
- including send on changes, send on receipt, time
based sending, etc.

Scripting
Scripting has almost become a required function in
networking analysis tools. There are always unique
situations where scripting is essential to automate
tests, simulate nodes, or initiate messages based on
network activity. The script itself should be easy to
use and based on an environment familiar to most
developers, making their implementation fast and
efficient.

Post Data Analysis


Traditional bus analysis tools provide little
functionality for analyzing the data contained in CAN
messages. Expectations of these tools are getting
higher, since passive monitoring is not enough. With
programmable conditional highlighting of monitors,
virtual channels, and the ability to mix real-time and
recorded data, good post analysis tools empower
users. It allows them to streamline and enhance
every aspect of their jobs.

19
CAN Bus Interfaces

ATI offers several products for hardware solutions that include node emulator or easy-to-use PC interfaces. One
benefit of using a hardware solution is that it can provide real-time results without PC operating system interruptions.

Hardware Emulator

ATI’s CANverter provides the simplest way to move


signals on or off a vehicle network. This low cost
device allows users to collect analog and digital
signals then convert the data into CAN messages. It
can also receive CAN messages and translate data to
analog, digital, pulse or PWM outputs. Once set up
using the CANverter Configuration software, it is used
without a PC.

For example, use the CANverter to read analog


torque measurements and output CAN messages
to provide the torque information to the entire CAN
network.

PC Interfaces

ATI provides the VISION Network Hub or


CANary Interface Module for use with VISION
Calibration and Data Analysis software for
synchronized network data analysis. To provide
the widest possible range of interface options, ATI
partners with Kvaser AB to provide CAN interfaces
of all format types, including USB, PCMCIA, PCI,
ISA, and data loggers. Rugged versions of hardware
are also available.

VISION Calibration and Data Acquisition Solution

The VISION Difference

VISION’s approach is unique. Designed and developed with direct input from ECU development customers, VISION
functionality is structured based on how engineers want to work rather than how a programmer builds software.
VISION focuses on customizability, efficiency, expanding compatibility, minimal steps, performing multiple functions
at once, and programmability to simplify repetitive tasks. The sole purpose of VISION’s flexibility is to speed up the
development process.

Evidence of ATI’s success is the fact that new customers only require minimal training upon start up. This is
demonstrated by the fact that the vast majority of VISION users do not see the need for on-site support. All
customers benefit from ATI’s customer service team that not only answers questions in record time, but act as the
advocate for the customer by adding product improvement suggestions directly to the local development group.

VISION development is being structured to provide VISION users a platform that is more responsive to their very
dynamic development environments. The most recent introduction of VISION Tool Suite provides an advanced
expansive framework to which functionality can be added in the form of plug-ins. With functionality independence
and the ability to accommodate enormous volumes of data, VISION Tool Suite enables the addition of functions
such as MDF4 recorder analysis, editing of A2L files, new ATI hardware configuration utilities, automated script
generation, and virtually any new feature requirement in the future.

The VISION Client Services Tray provides services that are


normally not accessible or easily accessible to typical application
users. The evolution of Windows security was the basis for the
creation of Client services. This isolates users from many of
the traditional Windows application management limitations.
VISION Client Services deliver these extended features such as
licensing using a file rather than codes, assigning VISION Rapid
Prototyping versions to MATLAB and configuring the Recorder
Catalog or Remote Dashboard. All these activities can be
accomplished without launching VISION.

Scripting to Expand your VISION Application

For those who want to automate tasks, have novel approaches to accomplish tasks or invented entirely new functions
beyond the native capabilities of VISION, the VISION API provides the ultimate in customization flexibility. Use
Microsoft Excel, MATLAB or free options such as VBScript or Microsoft Visual Studio Express to quickly automate
tasks. The Automated Test Sequence editor is a visual scripting environment for easily creating or modifying scripts
to interact with the VISION application without specific programming knowledge. Scripts (.ats files) can be built to
perform the simple task such as starting VISION, loading project files into VISION, toggling VISION online state, or
starting a recorder. More extensive scripts can be built that include performing actions such as enabling and auto-
syncing devices, adding/configuring strategy files, adding and activating calibration files, opening screen files, or
writing to Data Items.

Rapid Prototyping - No-Hooks


Perform software-centric algorithm rapid
prototyping on existing ECUs using the
No-Hooks/OnTarget toolkits with VISION.
The patent-pending No-Hooks technology
enables the bypass of control variables
in the ECU’s RAM that are normally only
viewable or measureable. OnTarget uses No-
Hooks and integrates Mathworks Simulink
models into an existing ECU strategy. These
bypass functions occur with the production
ECU executables without requiring access to
the ECU source code. There is no need for
high cost external bypass hardware, extra
Hardware-in-the-Loop boxes or expensive
(and time consuming) code changes.

Rapid Prototyping Software

ATI offers an innovative, patented software-centric method


for rapid prototyping ECUs that functions with our VISION
Calibration and Data Acquisition Software to make a complete
development solution. The base product, No-Hooks, allows users
to bypass control variables in the ECU’s RAM (that are normally
only viewable or measureable) with calibratable parameters. The
OnTarget toolkits add another level of prototyping to bypass ECU
control variables with model outputs inline with the production
ECU executables. In both cases, the bypasses are implemented
without any modifications to the ECU source code and the new
algorithms are run on the production-intent ECU.

No-Hooks Rapid Prototyping Software


No-Hooks is the foundation of ATI’s Rapid Prototyping product. With only the information needed for traditional
calibration and using an ECU interface, Base No-Hooks allows the user to control and adjust global RAM variables in
the ECU. Use Base No-Hooks to select variables and convert them to calibratable variables, and use ATI’s VISION
software interface to easily make changes. There is no need for access to or modification of the ECU source code; all
that is needed is the ECU executable and description files. Inputs may be forced to simulate specific conditions for
testing without modifying or adding expensive hardware. Previously fixed values may be adjusted without the need
for expensive code changes. Simplify and expedite tasks, enable creativity, and lower costs using ATI’s Base No-
Hooks.

No-Hooks is simply the addition of a software switch that allows the bypass of an existing variable with a manually
controlled alternative variable defined by the user. The code to bypass the existing variable runs in-line with the rest
of the original code on the target ECU. No-Hooks replaces a variable assignment (or “write”) instruction in the existing
ECU code with a branch instruction to a small bypass algorithm placed within the ECU code space.

This provides the ability to bypass writing the original


value with writing a new, calibratable value to the
variable. When the code reaches a write to the
variable to be bypassed by No-Hooks and if No-Hooks
is turned on, the code branches to the No-Hooks
bypass algorithm which writes the replacement value
to the variable, and then immediately branches back
to resume the original code.

Because No-Hooks identifies every Write instruction


to a specific variable, it can generate these branch
points to bypass any variable that is written to by
the ECU code. When running, the No-Hooks bypass
can be turned off and on through a simple software
switch. In addition, both the original variable value
and the bypassed variable value can be viewed and
compared at any time.

33
Rapid Prototyping Software

OnTarget Rapid Prototyping Software


Add further functionality and complexity to
No-Hooks with OnTarget Rapid Prototyping.
OnTarget performs No-Hooks bypassing but with
the added capabilities of replacing the calculation
of an ECU variable value with alternative code;
still without the need for any of the base ECU
source code. OnTarget is designed to make use
of Simulink® models to develop these alternative
bypass control algorithms. Simulink is a platform
for simulation and model-based design from The
MathWorks.

The unique performance benefit of No-Hooks OnTarget is that the alternative code actually runs in-line with the rest of
the original code directly on the target ECU with no latency. OnTarget enables the selection of Data Items as triggers
and inputs, then returns the alternative code results when activated by a variable write instruction bypassed by No-
Hooks. As with any No-Hooks application, both the base strategy and the bypass model can be fully calibrated and
controlled within VISION, and the bypass model enabled and disabled with just a simple mouse click to enable easy
comparisons between the base and the prototype strategy. OnTarget is ideal for the prototyping and testing of new
closed-loop functions and Function A/Function B comparison testing.

ATI has worked with The MathWorks, Inc. to seamlessly integrate its OnTarget rapid prototyping, data acquisition
and calibration capability in VISION with the high-level Modeling language of MATLAB®/Simulink®, and the ability to
convert these high level Models into real-time executables with Simulink Coder™ (formerly Real Time Workshop®).
No-Hooks OnTarget includes custom Simulink libraries (block sets) and target build files for generating C-code using
Simulink® Coder, compiling the code with various compilers, and linking the new No-Hooks and model variables with
the existing ECU code. Depending on the target microprocessor, either a free ATI GCC compiler or an integrated user
specific compiler may be used for OnTarget code generation.

provide the features of a CAN interface, data acquisition module, and
data logger all in one compact package. Communication channels
include CAN, K-line, and LIN that interface to ECUs or communicate
with ATI data acquisition hardware.

The DLX includes eight analog channels, one sensor power output,
four thermocouple channels, and four digital input/output channels.
This combination ensures that ECU and instrumentation data are
properly correlated for easy analysis. The DLX brings a robust and
cost effective data logging and calibration interface to small engine
development, where the unit’s compact packaging and IP65 splash-
proof rating make it ideal for space constrained applications.

The files recorded by the DLX are saved to the removable SDHC memory card in ASAM MDF4 file format. The
DLX fully follows the MDF4 file format version 4.1 and as a result, does not require a utility to decipher data and
additional recorder information. For easy access to the MDF4 logs, the DLX also functions as a USB card reader
when not actively logging.

The VISION Studio’s Data Analyzer was specifically developed to


support MDF4 files that can accommodate extremely large data
sets. View recordings and calibrations side by side at the same
time in the Data Analyzer boosting productivity.

The DLX Datalogger is easily configured using ATI VISION


Calibration and Data Acquisition software.

Data Acquisition system. Communicating via the Universal Serial Bus (USB)
connection, its two CAN channels enable communication from an ATI VISION
system to ATI data acquisition hardware, ECUs for calibration, and other CAN-
based products.

Use either CAN Channel to bridge data between ATI’s data acquisition hardware,
ECUs (using CCP or XCP), or other CAN devices that are compatible with VISION
Calibration and Data Acquisition Software. These devices include ATI’s EMX
Data Acquisition Series and most third party data acquisition modules.

Features

The CANary’s ultra-compact design supports many applications including:


• ATI data acquisition hardware (EMX Series, EDAQ Series, Voltage Output Module (VOM), and Vehicle
Information Display (VID))*
• ASAM communication protocols (CCP/XCP) typically used for calibration, monitoring, and flashing of
ECUs
• Generic CAN devices that utilize database files
*Note: The CANary cannot be used in standalone mode with the VOM or VID (without a PC running VISION)

A7 Serial Interface Module

A7 Modules are a family of USB devices that provide connectivity between a PC and an
Electronic Control Unit (ECU). The A7 enables data acquisition, calibration, and flashing
functionality to ECUs with supported microprocessors via a connection through the
microprocessors debugger interface. Currently supported interfaces include JTAG, AUD, and
RTD interfaces that provide Real-Time access to memory mapped resources.

Minimize Processor Impact


The A7 runs independently of the ECU processor, allowing modification of the ECU memory
without interrupting the processor. Using the debugger interface provides the capability of
acquiring data and flashing the ECU at a significantly higher rate than through the CAN bus.
The CAN bus is thus freed up for other tasks, such as monitoring diagnostic information.

No Additional Hardware Required Features


The A7 provides all connectivity between the ECU and the
PC so no extra hardware is required. It has an integral • Full support for ECU data acquisition,
power supply and is powered by the PC USB connection.

Ignition Timing Meter (IGTM)

The ATI Ignition Timing Meter is a precision timing measurement


instrument designed for engine development and testing where ignition
timing and CAM timing measurement accuracy (steady-state and
transient) is important. The IGTM-2000 provides an easy means for data
acquisition systems to collect real-time measured ignition timing on
spark ignited engines.

Engine Signal Interface


Ignition firing is detected by using an inductive spark plug wire sensor,
connection to the ignition coil primary or connection to the ignition
module coil trigger logic signal. Crankshaft reference position can be provided by a number of methods including
user-installed and production engine position sensors. For most applications, installation may be simplified by
connecting the IGTM-2000 in parallel to existing position sensors used by the production Engine Control Module
(ECM).

Intelligent Signal Conditioning


Microprocessor controlled Intelligent Signal Conditioning dynamically adjust threshold and hysteresis levels when
using VRS style magnetic sensors, to minimize interference under all operating conditions. Alternatively, all signal
conditioning parameters may be manually preset by the operator. All parameter settings are retained in non-volatile
memory.

Timing Patterns
Compatible with “patterned” (i.e. missing or extra tooth) crankshaft position signals. Popular automotive patterns
are pre-programmed and additional custom patterns can be easily programmed by the operator. Maximum
achievable transient timing measurement accuracy is always obtained for any given reference pattern.

Features

• Accurate Timing Measurement (+/- 0.05 degree) (Ignition, Camshaft and Injector Timing)
• Data Acquisition System Interface (Analog and RS-232)
• Microprocessor Controlled Intelligent Signal Conditioning
• Compatible and Adaptable with all Engine Ignition Systems
• Compact Enclosure for Mounting in Test Cell or Vehicle

Typical Sources for Input Signals


Reference
Existing patterned crankshaft position sensor, one pulse-per-rev sensor (requires Angle input), TDC signal from
OEM Ignition Module (GM-REF, Ford-PIP) or an optical shaft encoder index signal
Angle
Optical shaft encoder angle signal or magnetic sensor detecting ring-gear teeth (requires a one pulse-per-rev or
TDC signal)
