|FUJITSU TEN LIMITED (Headquarters: Kobe, President:
Takamitsu Tsuchimoto, Capital: 5.3 billion yen) has developed a
new system for the automobile ECU developent tool gCRAMASh real
time simulator. The new system is equipped with a high-speed Intel
Pentium 4-2.8GHz CPU board, and its high reliability and durability
allows use in the entire production process from design down to
the factory production line. We will hereafter begin production
of this product by special order.
In addition, from May 18th (Wed) to May 20th (Fri), we will exhibit
this system at the 2005 AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEERING EXPOSITION (sponsored
by: Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan, Inc.) held by Pacifico
Yokohama (Yokohama City).
In the pursuit of greater automobile comfort and safety, the amount
of automobile controlling ECU (Electronic Control Unit) programs
are continually increasing. Because of this, we are also experiencing
major increases in the number of man hours needed for ECU function
development and evaluation of reliability.
The real time simulator gCRAMAS,h released in the year 2000 and
well received ever since, is capable of evaluating of functions
and performance for control algorithms of engine control ECU and
transmission control ECU, under conditions equivalent to an actually
To deal with long hours of continuous automatic operation caused
by ever-increasing effort required for development and evaluation,
this newly released gCRAMASh has a main rack with increased durability,
and provides improved processing capacity, equipped with an Intel
Pentium 4-2.8GHz high-speed CPU board.
Also as a result of reviewing internal layout designs from conventional
products, we have enhanced heat exhaust efficiency, greatly increasing
This technology can be used in fields ranging from design environment
to factory lines, establishing seamless development and production
Furthermore, the system is given high expansion capabilities, allowing
compatibility with gHybrid vehicle ECUfsh which require a large
system size, by simply adding an extended interface box.
We are presently planning to acquire the UL certification*. After
acquiring this certification we commence sales overseas.
