DEWETRON is ASAM Member
The new year has just begun and we can already present good news! We are proud to declare that DEWETRON is ASAM member. Hence, starting from now, we will contribute our knowledge and our know-how to the Association for Standardization of Automation and Measuring Systems (ASAM).
What is ASAM?
ASAM is the Association for Standardization of Automation and Measuring Systems. It is an international association and incorporated under German law. The majority of its members are international car manufacturers, engineering service providers and suppliers from the automotive industry. The association contributes an integral part in the coordination of the development of technical standards. Various working groups develop guidelines and rules which quickly establish as industry standards. Experts from member companies are allowed to join the working groups. Therefore, we are honored that DEWETRON is ASAM member and part of the most well-known companies in that sector.
Why is ASAM important?
ASAM’s vision is to allow a seamless and easy exchange of data through the interconnection of the tools of a development process chain. ASAM standards define several sectors. For instance, they are important for definition of protocols, data files and file formats. In addition to that, ASAM’s standards are paramount for application programming interfaces (APIs). These find use in the development and testing of automotive electronic control units.
Many popular tools in the areas of measurement, calibration, simulation and test automation comply to ASAM standards. The compliance to these standards guarantees interoperability of instruments. In other words, complying to the ASAM standards enables the use of products from several different providers. In addition to that, there is no need for converters during data exchange. As a result, the communication between suppliers and customers becomes easier as well.
