Virtual integration of automotive software


  • Built-in support for ASAP2/A2L, CAN, MDF, XCP, PAR/DCM standards
  • Ability to co-execute software from Simulink ®, Simulink Coder , and other software modeling tools
  • Ability to co-execute models from Simulink, Simscape , and other physical modeling tools
  • Interfaces to calibration tools, test, debugger, and rapid prototyping


Silver is a tool used by automotive engineers to integrate and test control software virtually using simulation on Windows PCs. Silver provides built-in support for automotive standards to perform co-execution of control software and of vehicle simulation models. The benefits of such a SiL setup for developing control software include:

  • Fast development cycles, with problems detected early
  • Graphical debugging and test support on PC (e.g., with Visual Studio Debugger)
  • Parallelization of the development process: Silver simulations can easily be duplicated at low costs
  • Sharing results without sharing IP: since Silver runs compiled modules (Windows DLLs)

Control algorithms and simulation models can be co-executed from development tools such as MATLAB®, Simulink, Simulink Coder, Embedded Coder™, Simscape, other software modeling tools and programming languages (C/C++, Python). Silver provides built-in support for automotive standards such as ASAP2/A2L, CAN, FMI, MDF, XCP, HEX/PAR/DCM, and ISO 26262. This way, a developer can tune, test, and analyze control software on a PC, rather than moving the software to ECU, HiL, or test rigs or into a real car.
