Shift left with PAVE360 digital twin

PAVE360 puts a virtual car on every engineer's desk

Start earlier and develop faster with hardware and software co-design. Use the PAVE360 digital twin solution to truly realize the software-defined vehicle (SDV) and enhance every stage of the development cycle.

Achieve pre-silicon validation

Handle complex validation tasks with ease. Use the PAVE360 digital twin to bring engineers into one environment. Accelerate your design by validating hardware and software and pre-silicon availability.

Next-generation vehicle designs are based on an intricate, complicated web of system-level interactions that need connectivity among multiple sensors, actuators, processors, electronic control units (ECUs), networks and driving scenarios. This system-of-systems validation is in addition to validation of system-on-chips (SoCs), ECUs and systems. Learn how PAVE360 handles the burden.

Why PAVE360?

Create a full vehicle system view, pre-silicon, by connecting multiple automotive clients. Break down the silos with PAVE360. Develop a shared digital twin that multiple teams can work on.

Open platform solution

Configure and connect mixed fidelity domains, protocols, systems and tools from multiple vendors. Adapt the digital twin for each phase of the vehicle design cycle.

Start with the tools you have

Connect available models and then test your system. Then, analyze the metrics to improve and iterate on your design. Make decisions faster.

Mixed-fidelity analysis

Get fast results from virtual models. Move to hybrid simulation, mixing virtual and register transfer level (RTL) code for greater accuracy. Then connect to specialist tooling for deeper analysis.

Consistent digital twin environment

Visualize full system-of-system results with in-depth performance metrics. Get a single-eclipse-based integrated development environment (IDE) for software, hardware and system-level development and debug.

Build the virtual car

Model SoCs, ECUs or full system-of-systems. Maintain consistency and break down silos as multiple teams work on the same digital twin.

A digital twin solution that grows with your design

A digital twin will help pave the way for the next-generation, software-defined vehicle. But what is a digital twin solution, and how can you leverage it to shift left your automotive design?
