Costing Electronics Program in Cooperation with A2MAC1 successfully launched

The Costing Electronics program which is jointly offered by A2MAC1 and ecs provides a comprehensive cost comparison for automotive electronics which is unprecedented in its possibilities.


  • Cost information of selected electronic control units (ECUs) / modules in standard cost structure
  • Modules selected by degree of innovation, market dynamics and platform relevance
  • Detailed costing of bill-of-material and manufacturing process steps
  • Costing based on standard assumptions regarding volume, production site, currency rates and relevant overheads
  • A program of 5 vehicles per year
  • Analysis of 10 key modules per vehicle


In 07/2015, cost calculations have already been completed for 10 selected ECUs / modules from the following vehicles:

  • Mercedes C Class 180 [MY2014]
  • Passat Variant 2.0 TDi SCR Highline [MY2015]


Fig. 1 and 2 show the selected ECUs / modules from both vehicles (reference numbers according to A2MAC1’s Autoreverse program).
