Pinning Information & Pinning Variance
Note: There is a newer version of this specification see VEC 2.0.1
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 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.
