Simulation is used to model ECU thermal performance, and circuit simulations model the dynamic behavior of interfaces and power supplies. Worst-case parameters from WCA are fed into the simulators to ensure that dynamic performance meets design goals despite component value shifts. Recent projects have utilized these simulation tools:

CFD model of an OpenECU mounted on a vertical bulkhead with natural airflow convection.

AC simulation of the frequency response of the Home Plug Green PHY power line communications used on the M560.
