Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation is a real-time test technique used to test these devices more efficiently. During HIL test, the physical system that interfaces to an embedded control device is simulated on real-time hardware, and the outputs of the simulator mimic the actual output of the physical system.</div> <p><a href="http://electronicdesign.com/white-paper/key-considerations-powertrain-hil-test" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://electronicdesign.com/white-paper/key-considerations-powertrain-hil-test#comments White Paper Test & Measurement Tue, 17 Jan 2017 20:24:00 +0000 909981 at http://electronicdesign.com Hardware and Measurement Abstraction Layers http://electronicdesign.com/white-paper/hardware-and-measurement-abstraction-layers-0 <div class="field-deck"> Sponsored by National Instruments </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Hardware abstraction layers (HALs) and measurement abstraction layers (MALs) are some of the most effective design patterns to make test software as adaptable as the hardware.
