Siemens Digital Industries Software announced today that AISIN Corporation, a component supplier to many of the world’s largest automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), has expanded its investment in Siemens’ Capital™ VSTAR software portfolio.
Capital VSTAR is Siemens’ implementation of the AUTOSAR standard, the foremost specification for the development of automotive embedded software and a key enabler for generative software development. AUTOSAR provides development partners a common standard to integrate, re-use and transfer functions within a vehicle’s E/E (electrical/electronic) architecture, which can substantially improve software development efficiency. AISIN uses Siemens’ Capital VSTAR software to develop and integrate electronic control units (ECUs).
“Siemens’ dedication to AISIN’s success is reinforced by our continued commitment to use the Capital toolchain and Capital VSTAR solutions in key projects for our most important customers,” said AISIN’s technical leader for software platforms. “We selected Siemens once again because the Capital software portfolio meets the very specific needs of AISIN, our development partners and our customers. Using Capital also helps us to standardize on a single vendor, which simplifies relationships and streamlines processes.”
AISIN previously secured full approval from a leading Japanese OEM to use the Siemens’ VSTAR technology portfolio in the carmaker’s vehicle programs. Capital VSTAR technology enables continuous integration workflows, which are critical to successful automotive software development for next-generation cars. Capital also provides a common solution and standard for multiple OEMs, in turn providing cost savings and streamlining development cycles for the design of next-generation ECUs. From requirements through to delivery, Siemens’ comprehensive VSTAR AUTOSAR solution helps Siemens’ customers produce compelling and highly differentiated ECUs on schedule.
“Siemens is pleased to continue our very productive partnership with AISIN,” said Henrik Olsén, product director for the IES division of Siemens Digital Industries Software. “We look forward to helping AISIN continue to succeed with many of their most innovative and compelling upcoming projects.”
Siemens is an AUTOSAR Premium Partner and a significant contributor to the growing standard through the Capital VSTAR product family. For more information on Siemens’ embedded systems solutions, visit the website:
