A hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) test bench is a system that acquires input data from a DUT in real time, feeds it to a mathematical model, and in turn generates output data that is fed back to the DUT.

There are many HIL systems from smaller and larger manufacturers. The best known in the automotive world come from ETAS, Vector Informatik or dSPACE.


Our services

For various HIL systems, we have developed customer-specific components (electronics and software) for data acquisition and in some cases also integrated them into the HIL software. The connection is usually made via open standard interfaces such as Ethernet or USB.
