Inter-application Communication in an AUTOSAR-compliant System

How does application software pass data within an AUTOSAR-compliant system? The answer depends on what the application wants to communicate with.

Holiday Elves

DISTek Elves busy in the workshop!

♫It’s the most wonderful time of the year♫…..DISTek continues the tradition of giving back:

Once again this year, as in previous years, the DISTek Cedar Falls office adopted two families from the Waterloo school district to help make their Christmas a little extra special. We received a wish list from each of the families and shared these with DISTek Elves (employees) who set about fulfilling everything (and even some extra items) on their lists. As usual, Elves were very generous...
