ASAM aims to start a new project to further develop ASAM XIL, an API Standard for the communication between test automation tools and test benches. The Standard supports test benches at all stages of the development and test process – most prominently model-in-the-loop (MIL), software-in-the-loop (SIL) and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL).
It is intended that the Standard will support more complex test environments, which are typically found in the SIL environment. Therefore, some recommendations by the VDA project group "SIL Standardization" shall be implemented.
Addtionally, the extensions and modifications requested by the concept project "ASAM XIL for Service Oriented Communication" shall be developed.
Overall, the following key features shall be implemented:
These major modifications will result in a new version 3.0.0 which will be incompatible with the current version ASAM XIL 2.2.0. We therefore encourage all users of ASAM XIL to take part in this project and bring in their requirements and support the solution development. ASAM members also have the opportunity to review the proposal in advance and comment on it without the need to take part in the project.
The project is scheduled for a duration 24 months. Two-day working meetings are planned approximately every 6 weeks.
