Project Details

ASAM has created new versions of two standards for the MC-3 test automation area, which are scheduled for release in Q1 2019: ASAM ASAP 3 and ASAM iLinkRT. We invite all members to review the draft versions of the standard before their final release.


Participation in the review is beneficial for those members, who work in one of the following areas:

  • Experts responsible for test automation systems 
  • Experts responsible for calibration & measurement systems 
  • Test engineers using automated or scripted access to ECU data


Please submit your review comments by January 11, 2019.


About ASAM ASAP 3 and ASAM iLinkRT

ASAM ASAP 3 is a protocol used for configuration and data transfer between data acquisition systems and test automation systems for the test of automotive ECUs. As a supplement to the ASAP 3 protocol, the companies AVL List and ETAS developed the public protocol specification "iLinkRT" for high-speed transfer of measurement data. Both protocols have been successfully used in test automation systems since many years. With the upcoming releases, iLinkRT is now being transferred to ASAM as a new public standard. ASAP 3 has been further developed to work together with iLinkRT and to include more features that have been recently introduced in other ASAM standards in the MC-area. ASAP 3 can still be used without iLinkRT for low-speed data transfer.
