Furthermore, it allows the grouping of those pins. The types of ports addressed in this post will be sender ports, receiver ports, compound sender-receiver ports, client ports, and server ports.

How can I test AUTOSAR models?

The AUTOSAR Software Components use well-defined ports, which encapsulate certain interfaces as a guarantee for type safety while components are communicating with each other. The AUTOSAR application layer includes various application specific software components that are designed to execute specific set of tasks, as per the use-case.

To initiate the edit, click in the Name value field. Application layer exchanges data with the underlying layers via the sender and receiver ports of the RTE. When software modules communicate through a “standardized interface”, it is NOT possible any more to route the communication between the software-modules through a network. The only supported configuration is a single server connected to one or more clients. Dear All, As per my understanding the difference between sender receiver and client server communication as below: A port is mapped to a single component and represents a communication point between the components.

After creating an SD based test case, the communication of the SUT can be specified by drawing messages between the SUT and the test components created for the ports. The Dio module shall not provide an interface for initialization of the hardware.


A runnable entity is triggered either cyclically or during an event such as data reception. Data of the sender will not appear on VFB. The VFB communicates via dedicated ports, which means that the communication interfaces of the application software must be mapped to these ports. Thanks for your reply. The attributes of the selected inport appear in the Property Inspector panel. A specific interface can contain multiple arguments.

In a tabbed table format, the Code Mapping Editor displays Simulink model elements, such as inports, outports, entry-point functions, and data transfers. Another way in which application software can interact is through client-server ports. The concept of Complex driver is useful for application components that call for a direct access to the hardware devices on the ECU.

AUTOSAR-like DIO Driver

The Port Driver performs this. The port interface required by an application software component serves as the input to the RTE port creation.

Senders and receivers can send simple data types like Boolean values and integers. This description is independent of a specific programming language, ECU or network technology.

Mitch began his career with DISTek as an engineering intern in the test and automation group. The DIO abstracts the access to the microcontroller’s hardware pins. One huge benefit of using AUTOSAR is that the same ports which communicate within one controller can be used to communicate with other controllers as well.


The difference is that the data from a server is only available to the client who requested the data. Prt occurrence of an unconnected port is not per se a design mistake.

And it is here that the Complex Device Driver comes into autosat. As the name suggests, these ports can both write and read data to and from the RTE. Once you have edited the configuration file for AUTOSAR-like Drivers you wish to use in your application, to generate the configuration header and source C files for all drivers configured, you have to pott “Generate Code” menu voice in the “Erika Driver Editor” Menu.

This interface defines a set of operations that can be invoked based on the client-server pattern. Also, the path to the specification file of the SUT needs to be added as include path.

Injection control or electronic valve control applications are good examples of such applications that require direct autosag to the hardware. Help Instructions Support Contact.

Runnables are functions which process the data that is coming into or leaving the SWC through its ports. AUTOSAR-like Drivers are meant to be used in the context of a process in which static configuration supported by tools is strongly suggested if not implied.
