A novel approach for the control of combustion engines requires a thermodynamical evaluation of each combustion in real time. As a part of the integrated system we present the design of a computer system, which is able to calculate the combustion rate in real time. Since the great amount of computational power which is able to perform this task is not available with standard processors, the design of an application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) became necessary. Each design step from the analysis of the combustion rate algorithm, the optimization of the algorithm and the dataform, the mapping on an architecture, the physical design of the chip set and the chip test is presented. Finally the mechatronic system, its architecture, flexibility and the software environment are demonstrated.
