The MS 6.1 engine control unit manages gasoline engines up to 12 cylinders. As a member of our MS 6 family it features a powerful digital processing core with floating point arithmetic and a high-end FPGA for ultimate performance and flexibility. The MS 6 family utilizes a new software development process based on MATLAB/Simulink which significantly speeds algorithm development by using automatic code and documentation generation. Custom functions can be quickly and easily generated. The flexible hardware design allows the MS 6.1 to support complex or unusual engine or chassis configurations.
