Frequently Asked Questions

What are the hardware development services we can expect from Karnex?

Karnex will support end-to-end hardware development – analysing the hardware requirements, architecture design, functional safety at the hardware level, board bring-up, unit testing and integration testing with the ECU software.

Why is Functional safety important in ECU development?

ECU development is a complex task which has enormous challenges. Ensuring reliability is one of the most significant challenges in ECU development. Since ECU controls critical parameters in a vehicle, any failure might have serious consequences. Hence, functional safety standards like ISO26262 are used in the end-to-end development process to improve the reliability and safety of the vehicles.

Will Karnex offer functional safety consulting for ECU hardware development?

Yes, Karnex will offer functional safety consulting for ECU hardware development, but we need to understand the requirements and architecture (if any) to support you.

What is Karnex's expertise in ECU development?

Karnex is a 10+-year-old organisation with a team of highly skilled professionals with an automotive background, serving the significant areas of ECU development (end-to-end) such as battery management systems, infotainment systems, instrument panel clusters, motor control and telematics control units. Over the years, we have gained credibility and reputation with several OEMs by supplying our automotive products and services.
