The main control functions are:
The hardware component of the Electronic Control Unit (ECU) is designed to allow excellent architectural flexibility, resulting in optimized performances depending on the application (2/4/6-cylinder engines).
In fact, the hardware structure can be adapted to the various engine/vehicle configurations through a “scalar” approach, thanks to which it is possible to start from a full version of the same logic core to arrive at reduced versions for simpler vehicles or for different market needs.
The specific management software for Port Fuel Injection (PFI) engines is developed through a design based on:
The Time-to-Market is reduced thanks to fast prototyping which also allows customization according to the customer’s requests.
Magneti Marelli supplies “turnkey” systems, in other words systems that are completely optimized from the calibration standpoint thanks to full and specific skills developed over the last decades at different facilities located in Europe, China, United States, India and South America where, thanks to the necessary competences, systems are developed depending on the different needs of the markets.
