Authors Andreas Patzer and Rainer Zaiser said the A2L file setup for an XCP Slave and how to create it and they describe various calibration concepts. Also illustrated are different application areas such as model-in-the-loop, software-in-the-loop, hardware-in-the-loop, rapid prototyping, bypassing and virtual ECUs. The authors explained the underlying functions for measurement and calibration based on a sample XCP implementation.
