Motivated by experiences in the Formula SAE® competition, an engine control unit (ECU) was designed, developed and tested at Oakland University. A systems approach was taken in which the designs of the electronic architecture and software were driven by the mechanical requirements and operational needs of the engine, and by the need for dynamometer testing and tuning functions. An ECU, powered by a 68HC12 microcontroller was developed, including a four-layer circuit board designed for EMC. A GUI was written with Visual C++® for communication with a personal computer (PC). The ECU was systematically tested with an engine simulator, a 2L Ford engine and a 600cc Honda engine, and finally in Oakland's 2004 FSAE vehicle.
