Dear Customer,

Again another year is drawing to a close. This gives us the opportunity to thank you for your cooperation in the past twelve months. Many projects have been moving forward in your development departments, and we are pleased that we have been able to support you in many ways.

Get connected – this was our promise to the participants of the Vector Technology Days 2017: two days for tools and trends, tips and tricks, bits and bytes around the development of demanding automotive electronics. If you didn’t have the opportunity to participate or would like to refresh your memory, please visit our review on the website.

We Vectorians look forward to 2018, our continued cooperation and new common tasks. Until then, we wish you and your family a Merry Christmas, health and success for the coming year as well as much joy in reading our newsletter.

Kind regards

Development of Distributed Systems

Using Model-Based Methods to Develop More Efficiently

Using Model-Based Methods to Develop More Efficiently

Up-to-date, detailed and comprehensible requirements are an important key to the success of an E/E system – whether in the automotive industry or in sectors where electronics development is becoming increasingly important. Two articles describe the advantages of an integrated development tool:


Making the complexity of the overall E/E development process controllable – With the next stage in the evolution of automotive requirement engineering.


Other industry, similar challenges – How model-based procedures assists the digitalization of medical technology.


Know-How: Automatic Diagnostic Validation is not Rocket Science

Automatic Diagnostic Validation is not Rocket Science

Read why – despite the growing scope of diagnostics – the effort for creation and execution of tests remains constant thanks to modern test tools. For example, with CANoe.DiVa diagnostic protocol tests have been generated and executed fully automatically for more than 10 years now. More information in the technical article.
