Pinning Information & Pinning Variance

Pinning Information & Pinning Variance

The electrical behavior of a PinComponent can be fixed for a certain EE-component, but does not have to be fixed. For example in the case of an ECU, the behavior depends on the deployed software.

Therefore the electrical behavior of a PinComponent is not defined directly and fixed in the PinComponent. In fact a PinComponent can define a number of PinComponentBehaviors, which are ConfigurableElements. This means the actual valid PinComponentBehavior for a PinComponent can be determined when the necessary variant information is available. When no variant information is necessary (the PinComponent has a fixed behavior) then the PinComponent just defines a single PinComponentBehavior.

The PinCurrentInformation and PinVoltageInformation can be used to describe the characteristic curves for different types and times of currents and voltages.
