Microcontroller-based platforms for on-board electronics of buses and trucks (body controllers and instrument clusters)

Customer benefits

  • Use of a customer-specific runtime system
  • Minimal resource and memory consumption
  • Built-in test manager for automated testing
  • Consistent programming processes in global teams through embedded collaboration tools
  • Flexibly extensible by our customer: Integration of customer's own hardware configuration tools

Components used from our solutions

logi.nRTS API:

  • With the help of the logi.nRTS API, the automation application implemented with logi.CAD 3 can be processed by a customer's own runtime system.

logi.CAD 3:

  • The entire logi.CAD 3 toolchain is available for programming the applications. The applications are validated by the integrated test manager, which enables continuous, automated tests.
  • Test manager features
    • Code repositories (for collaborative work)
    • Static code analysis
    • Software-in-the-loop test (SiL testing)
    • Processor-in-the-loop test (PiL testing)
  • The flexible extension options (embedding of a customer-specific hardware and signal configurator) as well as the compilation and optimization for the customer-specific target platform ensure minimal resource and memory consumption. 

Building Automation

Our virtual PLC for the smart building of tomorrow

Fields of use

Virtual PLC for building automation, which is used in municipal buildings such as university hospitals and tunnels, among other things

Customer benefits

  • Cloud-based, virtualized PLC
  • Fully automated generation of complete automation applications via a customer-specific control system

Components used from our solutions

Runtime system logi.RTS:

  • The runtime system logi.RTS runs on a virtualized server and performs building control tasks. The application logic of the PLC running virtually in the cloud is connected to the IOs in the building via a control system.

logi.CAD 3:

  • Application development takes place via a customer-specific web portal that provides prefabricated function blocks and libraries programmed in logi.CAD 3.
  • The implementation enables the complete operation of a building via a virtual PLC (administration, configuration and parameterization).

  • With the help of the logi.nRTS API, the automation application implemented with logi.CAD 3 can be processed by a customer's own runtime system.

logi.CAD 3:

  • The entire logi.CAD 3 toolchain is available for application  programming. The applications are validated by the integrated test manager, which enables continuous, automated tests.
  • Testmanager Features
    • Code Repositories (for collaborative work)
    • Static code analysis
    • Software-in-the-loop test (SiL test)
    • Processor-in-the-loop test (PiL test)
  • Compilation and optimization for the customer-specific target platform ensures minimal resource and memory consumption.

Mechanical Engineering

Multi-language environment integrates
application and safety engineering

Fields of use

Safety control systems in mechanical engineering

Customer Benefits

  • Optimal utilization of the available resources through the use of a safety-related runtime system with minimal footprint
  • Freedom of choice when using the IEC languages as FVL or LVL
  • Additional use of the C programming language as FVL
  • Safe parameterization of hardware components and of the safe application

Components used from our solutions

Runtime system logi.µSRTS:

Safe runtime system with small footprint, which allows the operation of safety-related applications up to SIL 3

logi.CAD 3:

  • Implementation of a safety-related application
  • The tool is qualified as T3 tool up to SIL 3 and allows the use of the different IEC languages either as Full Variability Language (FVL) or Limited Variability Language (LVL).
  • The C language can also be used as FVL.
  • A safe parameter editor enables functionally safe parameterization of the safe hardware and the safety-related application.

Mobile Automation

Safety engineering for safety functions up to ASIL C

Fields of use

Infineon Aurix-based control systems, which are used, among other things, to control self-driving heavy-duty trucks, tractors and forestry machinery, but also in construction cranes and large concrete pumps

Customer Benefits

  • Runtime systems with small footprint
  • Non-safe and safety engineering in a single tool
  • Realization of safety features up to ASIL C
  • Simplified development of hardware & software

Components used from our solutions

Two logi.cals runtime systems:

  • The logi.µRTS scheduler runs on the non-safe core, while the safe runtime system logi.µSRTS runs on the safety core.

logi.CAD 3:

  • Both runtime systems are programmed via logi.CAD 3. logi.µRTS also acts as a gateway between the programming tool and the safe scheduler logi.µSRTS.
  • Both safe and non-safe applications can be realized from one development environment.
  • The integrated safety toolchain supports, the development of safety functions up to ASIL C.
  • Due to the seamless integration of logi.CAD 3 into the existing customer system configuration tool, configurations for control programming can be adopted fully automatically.

Motion Control

Application and safety engineering in just one tool

Fields of use

Standardization and parameterization of drive controllers

Customer Benefits

  • Runtime system with small footprint
  • Application and safety engineering in a single tool
  • Fast and resource-effective programming processes
  • Simplified hardware & software development

Components used from our solutions

Runtime system logi.µSRTS:

Runtime system with small footprint, with which safe and non-safe applications can be operated on the same hardware.

logi.CAD 3:

  • With logi.CAD 3, both safe and non-safe applications can be programmed.
  • By integrating our programming tool logi.CAD 3 and an IEC-61131-3 block library into the existing customer engineering process, adaptations for the characteristics of a motion system (e.g. change of ramp-up behavior) can be implemented in an efficient and resource-effective way.
