Electronic control unit
Digital technology furnishes an extensive array of options for open and closed-loop control of automotive electronic systems. A large number of parameters can be included in the process to support optimal operation of various systems. The control unit receives the electrical signals from the sensors, evaluates them, and then calculates the triggering signals for the actuators. The control program, the “software”, is stored in a special memory and implemented by a microcontroller. The control unit and its components are referred to as hardware. The Motronic control unit contains all of the algorithms for open and closed-loop control needed to govern the engine-management processes (ignition, induction and mixture formation, etc.).
